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.

Beauty Meets Function
Not a big fan of neck knives. Seems an inconvenient, perhaps dangerous place to carry. My biggest problem with neck knives is the grips are usually too small to use the knife functionally. Not so, with the Mini-Tac Skinner, The grip is very ergonomic. Blade design is excellent for defense or utility. Love the up swept Persian blade. Plenty of belly, creating a longer cutting edge. Came razor sharp, shaves the hair on the forearm. Only complaint, I wish they included a belt clip for the sheath. This will replace my CRKT Folts Minamalist Neck Knife, Bowie Blade (nice design, junk steel), as a back-up knife in my hunting backpack (almost too nice to keep only for back-up).

Great Skinner
This is a great value. It arrived reasonably sharp. It is well balanced and comfortable to grip. It is secure in the sheath and releases easily. It looks good too. Buy one!
