Cold Steel Counter TAC Boot Knife II is designed with one simple philosophy in mind. Functionality. Quite simply - they work, and they excel at what they do! Their sharp, AUS 8A full-tang blades are vacuum heat treated, and sub-zero quenched for strength and durability. The ergonomic design of the Kray-Ex handle is comfortable and adaptable to any grip, and the deeply textured surface and double guard will insure that the knife is not likely to slip from your hand under any circumstances. Finally, each Counter TAC is shipped with a state of the art Secure-Ex sheath, complete with a removable boot/belt clip and lashing slots so you can carry it just about anywhere.
