CS80PGTK: G.I. Tanto
Cold Steel

As its name suggests, our G.I. Tanto is a no-nonsense tactical knife that comes with a legion of practical uses. It may be lean and spare, but it delivers the goods where they count the most! The broad Tanto point blade, integral quillon guard, and Polypropylene handle scales, exemplify a tactical knife stripped down to its bare essentials. It’s ground razor sharp out of 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper and protected by a black, rust resistant finish so it’s ready to take all the abuse you and Mother Nature can dish out.

Heavy, sharp and wonderfully balanced, it’s easy to throw by either the blade or handle and it hits with real vigor. In a survival or self-defense situation, it can be quickly and easily converted into a spear or war club. Just remove the handle scales and lash the blade securely to a suitable wooden shaft! Best of all, it’s a great value. Get the real G.I. Tanto from Cold Steel and get more than your money’s worth.

Pros: Materials, Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Handle Material, Finish
Great knife all-around.
Can attest to the quality of both the knife and sheath. Only reason this is a 4 and not a 5 star rating is due to the handle material being the antithesis of grippy, and doesn't have any kind of texturing to it (there's texturing but it's unbelievably shallow and made for looks more-so than actual utility), and it isn't rubberized, so if you plan on using this to chop as a bushcraft knife, or swing it around as a fighting knife, you'd better buy yourself a tough cord of leather or nylon for that hole at the pommel and loop it to your wrist, or else this thing is going to go flying out of your hand.

Cold Steel GI Tanto with Secure-Ex sheath
Good knife, I like the sheath a lot. Sturdy and awesome with tek-locs. Shipping was on time, in fact earlier then expect which was a pleasant surprise. Blade is a little beefier than expected, but it's solid.All in all, pleased with the shipping and the product. Thanks KnifeCenter, another happy customer!

Cons: None
Great knife
I've used this blade for chopping and fine cutting. It's a good overall knife. Great weight and easy to use. It's also very sharp right out of the package. I was able to shave my arm hair with it. If you're looking for a blade like this it's definitely a great blade and the price is great too. Hope this is helpful.
