Affordable prices and unparalleled customer service make Knife Depot the best place to find a top-quality tanto knife (or two) to add to your collection.

Picked up this little gem & was not disappointed, both in the apparent quality of the materials & the attention to which it was carefully assembled. It bespoke of a blade costing several times its asking price. Damascus blades are usually on the brittle side but this tanto's profile was very good, if not impeccable, to say the least. As a collector of finer knives & curios, this tanto shares a proud place among them all. It never fails to attract attention & when shown, many believe it to be costing more along the lines of a custom piece. Can't go wrong with this in your trophy case!!

I'm generally pleased with United Cutlery products & the commander is no exception. Solid little knife, grip a bit small for my hands but sports a nice hilt, nonetheless, keeping your hands off the quite sharp blade. Sheath a little flimsy, though serviceable, balances out my firearm shoulder rig nicely. I'd like to see how this little tanto throws with its very blade-heavy profile(& very sharp point). Would make a good boot knife as the flexible sheath could be sewn into most anything. Priced right also.

Should have read closer, it isn't spring assisted. Very small knife, not what I expected at all.

This is one of the best 4 inch folders for the money. I really like the Gerber quality that is paired with a razor sharp tanto-point with a full size combo edge I find that I wind up buying 2 or 3 at a time and giving them away to my family and friends as gifts.

Great knife. Handles everything I dish out with no problem.

Excellent knife for the price. Im happy with my purchase
