Today, after two centuries of personal sacrifice on and off the battlefield, our Leathernecks enjoy the love, respect, and admiration of every true American and it is to them Cold Steel dedicated a new series of battle ready knives. The Leatherneck features a hand-honed razor sharp tanto point blade. It's flat ground from top to bottom, creating a shallow "V" shaped cross section that has proven ideal for cutting slicing, and shearing through a wide variety of materials.
To keep the fingers from sliding forward on to its keen edge, the Leatherneck comes with a substantial guard. Made of thick steel with double quillons that are turned slightly forward, it provides excellent protection for the hand, especially in close combat, while offering minimal interference in the use of the knife when performing utility tasks.
The handle is made of deeply checkered Kraton, it totally encloses the knives' extra wide, full tang and offers unsurpassed gripping power through its palm hugging oval cross section and unique finger trough. It's capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap, so it can also deliver frightful blows with the butt or double in an emergency as a hammer. To carry the Leatherneck safely and conveniently in all environments, it comes with a sturdy Secure-Ex sheath complete with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop.
