Cold Steel Kobun
Knife Review for 2012
Knife - Cold Steel Kobun
Cold Steel Kobun for 2012.
The Kobun is a lightweight fixed blade full tang tanto style boot
knife. For $25 to $40 this knife is worth considering if only because
of the great value. The tanto style point is designed primarily for
piercing. The small yet adequate size of this knife makes for an ideal
backup. Those with very large hands may find the grip too thin but for
a backup knife it makes a good defender. Military and law enforcement
personnel often carry a backup or boot knife for defense if primary
weapons are exhausted. The kobun looks like a mini version of the Cold
Steel tanto fixed blade knives which are heavier, thicker and much more
Good rubberized grip on the handle which has a lanyard hole. The sheath
is thermoplastic with very good retention. A clip on the sheath can be
used for belt or pocket, inside the waist carry or boot carry. Ten
grommets in the sheath allow lashing with 550 paracord to leg or vest.

Reviews for the Cold Steel Kobun

Knife blades are steel but why so many different kinds and numbers?
Steel is not a chemical element.
Steel is a combination of chemical elements all mixed together called
an alloy. The different kinds of steel have slightly different
combinations of elements and amounts of those elements. For example
stainless steel will have 11 to 20 percent Cr (Chromium) for resistance
to rust. Steel is mostly Fe (Iron) with a mix of several other elements
which add hardness, durability, or other desirable traits to the steel.
Each kind of steel is made by companies around the world which give
their particular mix a number or name so everyone knows what is in the
steel. The following link has much information on knife steel.
