Original "Black Talon" was a revolutionary knife in many ways. Handmade and limited edition, it featuring a modified curved talon blade made from Japanese San Mai steel, a sleek titanium frame with G10 scales and - for its time - a very strong locking mechanism. Cold Steel fans have been clamoring for them to bring back this classic and iconic blade, and now Cold Steel is proud to announce a newly re-designed knife that they have christened the Black Talon II! A design collaboration between Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson and custom knife-maker Andrew Demko, the Black Talon II is a modern masterpiece! The textured premium USA G10 scales offer maximum retention and grip even in cold or wet conditions while still being kind on your clothing when drawn from the pocket. The contrast between the deep black of the scales and the exquisite rich satin polished blade further emphasize the flair and style of this good-looking and elegant folder. Featuring high performance Tri-Ad locking mechanism for added safety and strength, this thin, lightweight and eye-catching knife is sure to be the talking point of anyone's collection!
