Description
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.

Cons: None
Great value, easily modified
The cold steel G.I. Tanto is a full tang piece of high carbon steel. Mine came very sharp and with a Securex (kydex) scabbard. Sheath is nice, knife is a no-frills utilitarian tanto design open to modifications by the end user which is my reason for purchasing it. The price was too low to pass it up. I couldn't find much information online about the cutting edge length, so if anyone else is curious: Sharpened cutting edge is 6" long False top edge, easily sharpened if desired This can be reshaped to be nearly identical to the Australian HH Tanto if one wishes, or shaped into a clip point Bowie not unlike the SRK. I purchased it mainly for utility use and when I become bored or find it no longer useful, I can change it to suit me. As a side note, the sheath secures the blade by clamping down behind the finger guards. Some reviews complained about the scabbard not releasing the knife. As with most kydex or hard plastic sheaths, scabbards or holsters, just put your thumb on the sheath at the edge and push down and the knife pops right out.

Love it!
I plan to use this as my camping/hiking knife. I like the sturdiness, weight, and balance, as well as the sheath.
