Cold Steel’s new generation of Mini Tac Neck Knives are astonishingly light at 3 ounces each. Because they’re so lightweight, they can be comfortably worn practically 24 hours a day. With their sturdy bead chain lanyards and their rugged Secure Ex® sheaths (specially designed to snugly retain the knife while allowing a speedy draw stroke), they can be worn outside clothing and perform as a handy utility or rescue knife. They can also be carried more discreetly under a shirt or blouse, or inside a coat. They can even be used for camping or hiking as they can easily be tied or taped anywhere from a backpack to a fanny pack. Their versatility is virtually endless. Fashioned from AUS 8A stainless steel and reflecting state of the art heat treatment they are honed to a razor edge and exhibit incredible toughness for such a small knife, due in part to their full tang construction. Tough, rough, and ready for anything, they come equipped with thin high quality black G-10 handle scales. This feature allows them to lie flat and close against the body and provide an aggressive gripping surface. Also when these scales are combined with integral sub hilt they give the fingers of the hand incredible purchase and allow a remarkably secure grip that resists rolling or twisting.


This blade shape is derived from the traditional Japanese pocket or utility knife. It can be used for whittling, carving, paring or virtually any chore you can think of. It offers a very acute point for all those hard to reach jobs.

Cold Steel 49HK Mini Tac Kiridashi
I think, it goes without saying that Knifecenter is doing an amazing job. Thankyou KC. About the product, I have never seen or used any knife that is as sharp as this one. Its sharp I mean very very sharp. Be careful when you take it out of the box. I was swinging the box to take it out and got myself hurt. It feels so good in hand. A powerful little guy is this mini tac.

Great knife!!!
Great knife. It's razor sharp out of the box. So far I've used it from construction to camping. No problems so far. It easy to clean. Rests well with bead necklace but I would recommend replacing it with cordage instead.

Cons: None
Well Designed
What can I say it works beautifully with the sheath and that's important when talking a neck knife. The steel is good and easy to sharpen. The ball chain it comes with is OK, however I replaced it with paracord. I like it enough to buy all the Cold Steel Mini Tac series.
