CS17T: Kobun
Cold Steel

Cold Steel describes this item as follows:

The Kobun is a lightweight Tanto styled boot knife. It takes its namesake from the Japanese martial, or underworld where the word "Kobun" means "soldier". It's a fitting name for a knife like the Kobun, which was effectively designed to be "a good soldier". In profile it closely resembles our Master Tanto, but it sports a thinner blade, and that supports its main function; to be a light weight boot knife.

Like our Tantos, it features the Tanto styled reinforced point. This contrasts sharply with most boot knives on the market today which are notorious for their paper thin points which are easily broken or bent. In contrast, the Kobun's point is highly resistant to bending or breaking because it is reinforced by the full thickness of the blade's spine which runs almost to the very tip of the blade.

The Kobun's deeply checkered Kraton handle is designed to offer minimum bulk with maximum grip. Its cross section was made as thin as possible (approximately 1/2 inch), then contoured to resist turning or shifting in the hand. The Kobun comes complete with a Secure-Ex sheath.

Cons: None
Kobun
This is an excellent utility knife and I've owned multiple kobuns in the past. I've used this knife as a kitchen knife to chop meat and peel fruit, as a camping knife and utility knife, even as a thrower with excellent balance. I'm a huge fan of the recon tanto but its size makes it unsuitable for every day carry. Thats where the kobun comes in. I can legally carry it on my belt whenever i need to have a bigger knife on my person. Can't go wrong with this one.
