Description
CS13QMBXII: 13QMBXII 3V Magnum Tanto XII
Cold Steel
 
The classic San Mai III fixed blades have been a Cold Steel staple for decades. Coveted by martial artists and knife collectors alike, they are much in demand, but these high-end luxury fixed blades are only produced in exclusive limited edition runs each year.

Therefore, we're proud to introduce the Nightfall Series of Japanese styled blades made from American CPM 3V high performance powdered steel - with the same design and attention to detail as the much loved San Mai classics but with the addition of this premium American super steel, we're excited to usher in a new era of high performance fixed blades for the discerning knife owner.

Each of these tough, reliable blades is DLC (diamond like) coated to a rich inky black finish. Highly scratch and wear resistant, and honed to an edge that you would expect on the keenest of razor blades, they are not only super sharp, but built to last!

Nightfall: Something Wicked This Way Cometh
Man, this thing is bad-a**! Nightfall Magnum Tanto XIIs is perhaps, the best combat/tactical fixed blade knife for the dollar. This tough, saber ground CPM 3V steel should definitely resist chipping. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Its Got It. Toughness: check; Edge holding steel: check; Arrived razor sharp: check; Strong steel piercing point: check; Plenty of reach: check; Well balanced/agile in hand: check; Secure/comfortable grip: check; Safe/quiet/secure sheath: check. What’s not to like? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I like what “Licensed Civilian” is doing with his Nightfall Magnum Tanto XII (scroll down and see his review below). I put this “Bastinelli Creations Leather Shoulder Holster, Compatible with All Kydex Sheaths,… Part #: BGBCSH” (available @ KnifeCenter.com) in my wish list awhile back. It looks like just the thing for it. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I looked around to see if I could get it at a better price on Nightfall XII, and found it at one of Knife Center’s competitors for $365 (Knife Center will price match). Nightfall Magnum Tanto XII is definitely one to own if you are serious about your tac tools.

Quality
Just small enough to be concealable on the average American man in a shoulder sling/rig configuration, this o-tanto is a top performing battle blade. It is light for its size, very well balanced, and fits well in an average sized hand. It is razor sharp. The pommel or punyo has been ground to a rounded point that would add impact to strikes using the base of the handle. The black finish is an absolute must, and I still wish it didn't have as much sheen as it does. The sheath is ambidextrous, and allows for inverse carry on a sling, or a knife rig on a shoulder harness. The ability to configure and carry the knife in this way allows for a very fast draw from concealment without putting yourself in a compromised position with the handle out and the business end pointing at your own vital spots. This blade has a tremendous amount of cutting and piercing potential. It has real stopping power.

Battle Value Option of the Century
I love these Cold Steel offerings - precision craftsmanship and excellent materials at the lowest price.This particular piece is war-ready. It has the reach you need to pierce an aorta at a reasonable distance, and will sever an arm with a well-placed chop. You'll be able to take down groups of men effortlessly if using a retention lanyard.This blade is expertly-ground and is very sharp out of the box - edge is even and symmetrical - no re-profiling needed! Fit and finish is out of this price range.The cons - the scabbard is a little cheap and is filled with white grease - so you'll need a can of brake cleaner to fix that little issue. Also, the DLC is applied a little thinner than I like it... Still 5-stars.... Get one before it's too late!
