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.

Fantastic Fighter
This knife design is for fighting/personal protection. It is not designed or intended to hack up saplings. The blade length is a force multiplier with practically effortless piercing abilities but with a very thick steel blade. The subhilt/finger notch and slight curve on the end of the handle allows for increased maneuverability and weapon retention. I prefer the San Mai version so I bought the carbon steel version to serve as a trainer after I dulled the blade. Regardless of steel version this is a very good knife for personal protection and both versions respond very well to sharpening and honing.

Cons: None
Great for the Price
Good steel, comes shaving sharp, awesome sheathe. The top guard is not metal however, which is a drawback for a "fighter" and is rather unnecessary across the back of the blade.
