Cold Steel

The OSS® sub-hilt fighter offers all the advantages and performance of a custom knife at a fraction of the price. For the ultimate grip, the handle guard, and sub-hilt are injection molded in one in one integral piece of Kraton®. This manufacturing method makes the OSS® more affordable while delivering the durability, security, and control in the hand that the sub-hilt fighter is famous for.

The OSI is the single edged version of our OSS. Hollow ground to a thin, ultra keen edge it's an awesome "sticker" and will cut and slash with the best of them. Extensively field tested by Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson, in Australia in 2007-08, it has field dressed, skinned, and "broken up" dozens and dozens of animals from wild boar to buffalo and proved to be outstandingly efficient field knife. It's also ideal for use in countries or localities that prohibit or restrict double edged knives.

Review of Cold Steel 12RTKJ1 Recon Tanto
Presently used for show. I especially love the feather light handling of this knife. Excellent handle. I sit and admire it quite often with all my other Cold Steel Knives. Buying Cold Steel is like knowing you are going to be pleased with your purchase.

Best bang for your bucks you are likely to find in this price range.
Just received my OSS and it exceeded my expectations for such a cheap knife. Both sides of the blade are razor sharp. The blade somehow feels even lighter than advertised, and the sub-hilt kraton handle feels extremely ergonomic and secure in the hand. The kraton is highly frictional and waterproof, vibration damping, impact resistant, insulated from heat and electricity, as well as cushioning for improved ergonomics. I highly suggest paracord-ing the sheath to allow for rapid one-handed draws from any horizontal carry position. As with all cold steel sheaths, if the sheath is too tight for you all you have to do is throw your OSS in the washing machine with your laundry. Remove it before you put your clothes in the dryer, then wipe your knife off and let your knife and sheath dry in the sun. This will expand the sheath by a millimeter or two, making your draw effortless without compromising the sheath's ability to retain the weapon. I also highly recommend adding an adjustable paracord lanyard to the handle because although the sub-hilt handle feature is great, there is a whole there for a reason. Was going to order another one but decided I will order two in order to get that free shipping. The only thing that I don't like is that the finish is almost a mirror finish and therefore reflects light. It would be awesome if it came in black but you cannot win them all. Sincerely, an unkown but active operator.
