Look through the pages of tanto blades offered to find exactly what you're looking for, whether you prefer a utilitarian blade or a more decorative look.

Randy K. from Manteo, NC
The knife fits in my hand very well and the texture on the scales allows for excellent gripping without being irritating. I like the ability to change what side the clip is on. The new Tri-Ad locking mechanism is fantastic and holds the blade tight with no looseness. The finish is very nice and durable. The knife came with an edge that was already to go and could shave the hair off my arm.

Great knife, love the way it feels and performs. Thought I had lost mine so ordered another only to find the "missing one" the other day. Glad to have two. You will not be dissatisfied if you buy this knife

This knife is a heavy duty knife with a sharp tanto blade that is plenty thick. It is a good survival knife.

The blade is only profiled on one side. the concept is great, however, the finger holes are too small for a full grown man. Improve these issues and get top marks.
