Cold Steel 49HTF Mini Tac Tanto w/ Faux G10. Cold Steel’s new generation of Mini Tac Neck Knives are astonishingly light at 3 ounces each. Because they’re so lightweight, they can be comfortably worn practically 24 hours a day. With their sturdy bead chain lanyards and their rugged Secure Ex sheaths (specially designed to snugly retain the knife while allowing a speedy draw stroke), they can be worn outside clothing and perform as a handy utility or rescue knife. They can also be carried more discreetly under a shirt or blouse, or inside a coat. They can even be used for camping or hiking as they can easily be tied or taped anywhere from a backpack to a fanny pack. Their versatility is virtually endless. Fashioned from AUS 8A stainless steel and reflecting state of the art heat treatment they are honed to a razor edge and exhibit incredible toughness for such a small knife, due in part to their full tang construction. Tough, rough, and ready for anything, they come equipped with thin high quality black Faux G-10 handle scales. This feature allows them to lie flat and close against the body and provide an aggressive gripping surface. Also when these scales are combined with integral sub hilt they give the fingers of the hand incredible purchase and allow a remarkably secure grip that resists rolling or twisting.
TANTO: For a knife this size, our Mini Tac Tanto offers a remarkably wide, stiff blade and a very sturdy reinforced point, making it ideal for piercing even tough, hard objects. As an added bonus, its wide blade allows for a very generously sized hollow ground blade bevel and an extra keen edge so it can cut almost as well as it pierces.

Specifications: Blade Length: 3 3/4″, Overall Length: 6 3/4″, Steel: Japanese AUS 8A Stainless, Weight: 2.7 oz., Blade Thickness: 2.5 mm, Handle: 3 3/4″ Long. Faux G-10, Sheath: Secure-Ex Neck Sheath.

I love this knife!! I use it everyday on my job. It may be little, but it's made very well!! I always get compliments on this knife!! I hate my pockets full of stuff. This knife is always accessible and ready to go. For self defense its wicked!! Since it's a full tang blade it won't bend or break on you. It can easily penetrate a human skull. You don't need a 8" blade to do damage, this knife in my opinion is PERFECT for my needs. I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone who needs a reliable, high quality, self defense tool.

Great review.  I watched and read as many as I could find.  Thank YOU for a thorough, interesting, and informative review.  I just ordered one from your store.  

I love these short reviews. Those "other" channels would do the same thing you just did but in 30+ minutes. Subscribed!

This blade is neck to neck with the Kiridashi as my prefered blade form the Mini Tac Series. This one is an excellent choice for someone who wants great penetration ability with a strong tip.
