Cold Steel – Thompson Saber

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015


One thing I like about Cold Steel is they’re not constrained by the typical. They’re not just a knife company, they make staffs and bats out of hardened polymer, offer full swords along with any EDC-capable knife, and they adopt or replicate older style weapons in many of their designs. That is readily apparent in the Thompson Saber, one of their latest designs in 2015. The Thompson Saber was created to Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson’s specifications as a modern-day fighting saber. It was inspired by Thompson’s extensive experience with Western, Japanese, and Filipino fighting arts, made of 1055 carbon steel with a modified 1904 saber guard and a ray skin-wrapped handle.

Inspired by the classic Trench Knives of the early 20th century, Cold Steel’s Chaos Tanto features a “D” ring guard made from reinforced 6061 aluminum, offering a comfortable and secure grip while protecting the hand from attack and damage while striking or cutting. The blade itself is 7.5″ of SK-5 high carbon steel, coated in black Tuff-Ex for corrosion resistance and reduced friction. The pommel features a 1055 carbon steel tapered point for Punyo or butt strikes. The Chaos Tanto comes with a Secure-Ex sheath with a belt loop for carry.

Cold Steel – Rubber Training Pistols

Monday, February 24th, 2014


New for 2014, Cold Steel has added a series of training firearms to their product offerings. Made from Polypropylene, these training guns are stiff enough to use with drawing and disarming techniques, yet soft enough for hand-to-hand striking situations. Based on some of the most popular pistols in America, the bright green coloration makes it unlikely these training aids would be mistaken for real firearms.
