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 Faux G-10 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.

Offers a super wide blade with a long shallow "V" cross section that's ideal for cutting and shearing or piercing. It makes a great all around field knife too and will prove equally useful outdoors at camp or at home in the kitchen.

Provides a long, curved cutting edge with a sharp point. It's ideal for cutting slashing and skinning strokes. It's been extensively fieldtested in Australia where it single handedly caped a huge buffalo slicing through neck skin over 1" thick!

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.

For a knife this size, our Mini Tac™ Tanto offers a remarkably wide, stiff blade and a very sturdy reinforced point, making it ideal for piercing even tough, hard objects. As an added bonus, its wide blade allows for a very generously sized hollow ground blade bevel and an extra keen edge so it can cut almost as well as it pierces.

Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Typical Cold Steel
Typical Cold Steel toughness, sharp edge and value for dollar. The AUS-8 steel is one of my favorite mid grade blade steels. Very good stain resistance, important in a neck knife worn close to the body. Keeps edge better than 440C but sharpens easier. Knife came hair popping sharp out of the box. I deducted a point for the poorly designed sheath. The knife rides way too deeply in the sheath, preventing a proper using grip when drawn. You must extract the knife with a two fingers then shift grip to use it. Won't work in self defense situations. I fixed this by making my own kydex sheath. Overall, a lot more cut for its size than it would appear. Great little knife, crappy sheath.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Small and easy to conceal.
The laws in the UK are draconian but this mini Tac can be hidden under my camping clothes. I'll feel safer when i'm camping on my own up on the moors having this as easy back up. Just in case..... ;-) I like the sheath as it holds the knife well. Many thanks Knife Centre.

Good Knife, Not So Good Sheath
Great product. Came extremely sharp out of box, but became dull with little use. This was easily fixed with a diamond stone. The sheath however, was good at first, but now will not hold the knife securely anymore. Also, kinda heavy for a neck knife.
