Description
CS49KS: Steel Tiger
Cold Steel

Cold Steel has always contended that the Karambit is a specialized style of knife with unique but limited uses. It is also, however, quite popular. So, in response to the many requests from our customers, and with the help of custom knife maker, Steven Likarich, we proudly introduce the Steel Tiger®, our interpretation of this ancient Indonesian knife.

It possesses all the best features of the classic Karambit and unites them with modern styling and materials, and, best of all; we’ve kept it very affordable.

The broadly curved AUS 8A stainless blade is beautifully polished, taper ground, and vacuum heat-treated and sub zero quenched, for maximum strength, cutting power and edge retention.

But it’s the grip that really distinguishes it from the competition. Designed for comfort, strength and ease of use, it features a tough Grivory® core that encapsulates the tang, emerging as the bolster/thumbshelf and distinctive finger ring. This core is then overmolded with Kraton®, which yields more to hand pressure than Grivory, and, in turn, creates a superb, non-slip grip.

For safety, convenience and quick access, the Steel Tiger® comes with a sturdy Secure-Ex® sheath that you can lash to your gear or retain on your person via the removable boot/belt clip.

Great knife
I found many uses for this product. This knife is VERY sharp, light, and fits my hands well. I own many Cold Steel products and as usual this one is just as great as the others. My son found it well suited to tobacco cutting, and I have used it in utility as well as a self defense tool. Trust me you would NOT want to be cut with this thing, it works just like a claw. Once in it's laying whatever it's in wide open, and as a slashing knife this is like a straight razor. Would trust this just like my Tai-Pan.
