CS49HKF: 49HKF Mini Tac Kiridashi
Cold Steel
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 G10 Griv-Ex™ Style 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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Excellent knife! LIghtweight, sharp, and a great trigger handle for a tight grip. I gave it to a lady friend's 18-year-old daughter both for protection and as a utility knife for her chores at their horse barn. She loves it--carries it with her all the time. I'll have to order another one pronto!

Cons: None
Another great knife.
This is the 2nd of the mini tac line that I own. As small as they all are this is the shortest. The grip on these knives is amazing. Even though you cannot get all your fingers on it you are locked in and have no fear of dropping your blade. It's very, very light, the sheath offers many carry options (I carry both this knife and the Beaver Tail on my belt), And this blade shape is perfect for random daily chores. One word of warning on the Kiridashi is that the tip is very fine. With hard use it will most likely snap at some point but then again this is not a heavy use blade. As self defense blades these knives (all the mini tacs) also work well in a deep cover situation and will work in a reverse grip if you're looking for karambit stlye knife. All in all an excellent purchase. Will be adding a tanto bladed version soon.

Amazing Value
An amazing quality knife at this price. The edge is razor sharp, and the tip is virtually a needle. My first neck knife, feels very comfortable, and not heavy at all. I would not hesitate to use this as a backup defensive blade. I think I could do more with this blade than I could with many of the more expensive tactical folders. The grip is very secure, and it can do all that a larger blade can do, except of course pommel strikes, because the handle is enclosed by the hand. The sheath is great. Service and delivery with were exemplary.
