The Kobun is a lightweight Battle Ready Tanto knife. It takes its namesake from the Japanese martial, or underworld where the word ""obun" means "soldier". It's a fitting name for a knife which was effectively designed to be "a good soldier". In profile it closely resembles the Cold Steel Master Tanto, but the Kobun has a thinner blade and is lighter weight.
Like all Cold Steel Tantos, the Kobun features the Tanto styled reinforced point. This contrasts sharply with many knives on the market today which are notorious for their weak, paper thin points which are easily broken or bent. 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's deeply checkered Kraton handle is designed to offer minimum bulk with maximum grip. Its cross section was made as thin as possible (approximately 1/2"), then contoured to resist turning or shifting in the hand. The Kobun comes complete with a Secure- Ex sheath.
