Even though it’s important to strive for the new and innovative, sometimes the best type of knife is one that blends the modern with the classic. That’s perfectly illustrated with this week’s Badass Knife of the Week: the Chaos from Cold Steel.
Taking inspiration from the trench knife used prominently in the two World Wars, the Chaos from Cold Steel is a modern take on the classic combat knife.
Featuring a 7.5-inch carbon steel blade and a unique hand guard made from reinforced 6061 aluminum, the knife is fit for the modern day warrior.
Like the classic trench knife, the knuckle guard on the Chaos protects your fingers from injury during combat and prevents the knife from being knocked out of your hand. But unlike the knives of old, this blade is coated with black Tuff-Ex, which bolsters its corrosion resistance and enhances cutting power.
An asset of the Chaos is that it comes in two different versions: the double-edged model, which you can see in the main image, and the Tanto model.
Both of these Chaos knives excel at piercing and puncturing but also bring their own personality to the table.
The Chaos, which includes a Secure-Ex sheath, also boasts a ferocious carbon steel pommel that’s tapered for additional damage. This is one knife no one will want to mess with.
