Cold Steel 39LSFCT Leatherneck Tanto - German D2 Tool Steel Blade - Griv-Ex™ Handle - Secure-Ex® Sheath
The Cold Steel Leatherneck Series is comprised of two distinct and iconic blade styles, both of which have proven to be exceptionally popular with our brothers and sisters in the armed forces: The Leatherneck-SF (for Semper-Fi) has a beautiful hand honed saber ground clip point blade, and the Leatherneck Tanto features the signature Cold Steel “American Tanto” blade with a stout reinforced tip for extra strength. Both are made from tough D2 Tool Steel with a non-reflective black powder coat finish. To keep the user’s fingers from sliding forward onto their keen edge, the Leathernecks come with a solid steel double quillon guard. The handles are made of deeply checkered Kray-Ex™ that totally encompasses the Leathernecks extra wide, full tang. The Leatherneck’s handle is capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap (not cheap casting or plastic like some others on the market) so they can even double as a hammer in an emergency! To carry the Leatherneck knives safely and conveniently, each blade comes complete with a sturdy and versatile military style Secure-Ex® sheath with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop.
