Cold Steel's Steel Tiger featuring a 5" Griv-Ex™ w/ overmolded Kray-Ex™ with a SecureEx Sheath

Our Steel Tiger® is a thoroughly modern tactical interpretation of an ancient Indonesian Karambit.

A design collaboration between Lynn C Thompson and the late custom knife maker Steven Likarich, the Steel Tiger® was designed to possess all the best features of this iconic hooked blade and to integrate them seamlessly with modern materials and styling.

The Steel Tigers broad, deeply curved and needle sharp blade simply has to be seen and felt to be believed.

The tough and durable Griv-Ex® core handle fully encapsulates the tang, emerging to create the bolster, thumb-shelf and distinctive finger ring. This Griv-Ex® core is then injection over-molded with premium Kray-Ex™ polymer, creating a superb, non-slip grip that won’t let you down even in when your hands are cold or wet.

For safety, convenience and lightning quick access, the Steel Tiger® comes with a Military style Secure-Ex® sheath that you can lash to your gear or retain on your person via the removable boot/belt clip.
