The Kobun is a lightweight Tanto styled boot knife. It takes its namesake from the Japanese martial, or underworld where the word "Kobun" means "soldier". It's a fitting name for a knife like the Kobun, which was effectively designed to be "a good soldier". In profile it closely resembles our Master Tanto, but it sports a thinner blade, and that supports its main function; to be a light weight boot knife. Like our Tantos, it features the Tanto styled reinforced point. This contrasts sharply with most boot knives on the market today which are notorious for their paper thin points which are easily broken or bent. In contrast, the Kobun's point is highly resistant to bending or breaking because it is reinforced by the full thickness of the blade's spine which runs almost to the very tip of the blade. The Kobun, from creative cutlery company Cold Steel, is a Tanto-style boot knife named after the Japanese word for "soldier." The sleek, lightweight knife has a blade made of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel, with a reinforced point that's highly resistant to bending and breakage. The blade's spine runs nearly to the tip of the blade for added durability, and a checkered, nonslip Kraton handle has minimum bulk with a great deal of grip. Its cross section is designed to be as thin as possible at only a half inch, and contoured to resist turning or shifting in your palm. A Secure-Ex sheath is also included.
