Cold Steel's Spike series neck knives are slim, light and super-tough. Their razor sharp, zero ground blades, are complemented by heavily scalloped, textured handle scales that offer a comfortable and secure grip. The Spike’s ergonomic handles feature integral quillons that provide a safe stop for index finger and thumb, while deeply textured and sculpted Griv-Ex provides excellent positive traction even when your hands are cold, wet and slippery. Available in four distinctive blade shapes (Bowie, Drop Point, Tokyo and Tanto point) they offer all the strength of a one-piece solid steel construction while still being light enough to carry all day without fatigue. Each Spike is supplied complete with a Secure-Ex sheath that provides excellent retention and safety.

More about German D2 steel:
4116 is a fine-grained stainless steel from Germany often used in the Pharmaceutical Industry and in high end Kitchen Cutlery. Its carbon and chromium content is balanced for excellent corrosion resistance and strength. Capable of taking a very fine, sharp edge, it makes an excellent choice for outdoor hunting applications. Our 4116 Stainless Steel is sub-zero cryo quenched for markedly increased strength, hardness and durability and superior edge-holding potential.
