    Leatherneck Series
    The word 'Leatherneck' has become synonymous with the famous U.S. Marines since 1776 when Congress compelled all Marines to wear a thick, high leather collar (known in the vernacular of the day as a "stock"). This collar served two purposes; first, it helped protect one's neck from sword and cutlass blows, and second, it forced a Marine to keep his head up straight, exhibiting the military posture that was fashionable at the time.

    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 we dedicate this series of battle ready knives.

    The series has two distinct blade styles. Both are made from German 4116 Stainless steel and finished with a rich Tuff-Ex&trage; non reflective coating:

    • The Leatherneck-SF (for Semper-Fi) has a saber ground clip point blade. It's hollow ground and honed by hand to a startling razor sharpness.
    • The Leatherneck-Tanto features a Cold Steel style Tanto blade. It's incredibly sharp blade is 7" long and hollow ground by hand.

    To keep the fingers from sliding forward onto their keen edge, the Leathernecks come with a substantial guard. It's made of thick steel with double quillons that are turned slightly forward and provide excellent protection for your hand (especially in close combat) while offering minimal interference in the use of these knives when performing utility tasks.

    The handles are made of deeply checkered Kray-Ex™ that totally encloses the knives' extra wide full tang. They offer unsurpassed gripping power through their palm hugging oval cross section and unique finger trough. They're capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap (not cheap casting like others) so they can also deliver frightful blows with the butt or double in an emergency as a hammer.

    To carry the Leatherneck knives safely and conveniently in all environments, they come with a sturdy Secure-Ex sheath complete with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop.

    One of my favorite knives from my favorite knife maker.

    I have only one complaint - the Tuff-Ex finish comes off way too easily under hard use. Now that this is out of the way...

    I LOVE this knife. The blade shape, the overall design...this is so much better than a Ka-Bar in every way. I would have liked to see this in AUS 8A, but considering the price point, I'll certainly take Krupp 4116, which is definitely better than 420 and 440 series steels. I love the handle, I love the hammer pommel, I love the thick guard, I love everything. Minor criticism is that blade retention in the sheath could be a little better - I can shake mine out upside down if I try. Wouldn't trust it for upside-down carry. Other than that and the finish, this knife is great and would serve any user well.

    Nicely shaped and well balanced knife. After some honing at glass edge it is exceptionally sharp. Good stainless fighting/survival knife for its price. I only can recommend.

    It would be nice to create some tough 7-8 mm thick hi-carbon or San-Mai knife with the same shape. I know that there is smaller Recon Tanto, but Leatherneck Tanto has better hand-guard and perfect hammer at the end of handle. There is a room for some big heavy-duty survival Tanto in ColdSteel portfolio.

    btw. Some Russians on YouTube gave Leatherneck Tanto some hard use and knife survived with no problem.

    For people that bash the sheath.

    Use some model glue just above the top screws so it'l go just a little tighter.

    Problem solved
