Cold Steel Hide Out... Astoundingly Functional!

The new Hide Out by Cold Steel was designed with one clear goal in mind; to produce a small, inexpensive and astoundingly functional neck knife - one that was just so good, so affordable and so light that there was simply no excuse not to carry one!

It's high satin polished, double-edged Japanese AUS 8A blade is "Scandi" ground, which makes it very sharp and also very stiff, allowing for a strong point and effortless penetrative power. It's full tang is encapsulated in a weather proof Griv-Ex™ handle that has been designed to be very thin and flat (so that it won't imprint on even the thinnest suit, dress slacks or uniform pants).

The handle swells at the butt to give the hand great purchase and security while enabling effortless transition between grips. And a generous lanyard hole is easily big enough to attach Paracord further aiding the knife's versatility. A strong, reliable Secure-Ex® sheath with bead chain lanyard completes this lightweight package.

Despite its cutting and piercing power, the knife itself is a featherweight, weighing a meager 1.9oz!

An awesome, affordable, lightweight double edged fixed blade that can easily be carried around the neck, tucked into a boot, attached to a belt or even carried in a pocket instead of a folder, the Hide Out sets a new standard for versatility. There is simply no excuse not to own one!
