CS53NCT: 53NCT Tanto Spike
Cold Steel
Entirely re-engineered for this year our Spike series continue to raise the bar for neck knives! Thin, light and super-tough, their razor sharp, zero ground blades, are complemented by heavily scalloped, textured handle scales that offer a comfortable, secure grip.

Integral quillons provide a safe stop for index finger and thumb, while the textured Faux G-10 provides excellent positive traction even when your hands are cold, wet and slippery.

Available in four distinctive blade shapes (Bowie, Drop Point, Tokyo and Tanto point) they offer all the strength of a solid steel one-piece construction (much stronger than any tactical folder and even rivaling the strength of some boot knives) while still being light enough to carry all day without fatigue.

The Spike series is come complete with a Secure-Ex sheath that provides greater retention and safety. Super lightweight (weighing in at 3oz in the sheath!) the Spikes can be comfortably worn around the neck 24/7 by using the black bead lanyard provided, or carried on a waistband or belt by taking advantage of their Tek-Lok™ compatible design.

Easily concealed, razor sharp and light as a feather – the Spike series by Cold Steel!

Great Knife
I have been actively carrying my CS Tanto Spike for a few months now. I am so impressed with the quality and edge holding ability of this knife that I am considering going with CS knives exclusively. I am no novice by any stretch. I have many brands. Schrade, Uncle Henry, and Gerber to name a few. I have been handling knives since I was a boy. My dad taught me to sharpen with an Arkansas stone by the time I was 12. That has been a few decades ago. All that said, the CS knives are the best knives it has ever been my pleasure to own. Great quality and workmanship. Easy to sharpen.

Cons: None
Perfect for a MOLLE vest/rig
I'll be honest. I love this thing. It goes on my support side behind my rifle mag on my chest rig for that "get off me" type shank/shiv. All I needed was some 550 cord (or zip-ties for temporary purposes) Rather than have a huge, ka-bar styled combat fixed blade on my vest, this blends in easier and looks more low-key and still allows me plenty of real estate for other pouches.

Pros: None
Cons: None
This knife is awesome. I carry it around my neck on a daily basis as a back up knife. This new spike has a much better grip than the other models and there is no chance of it slipping through your hand when stabbing. Came super sharp and ready to carry. I like it so much I am going to buy three more for the rest of the family. Regards Johan/South Africa
