The G.I. is a no-nonsense tactical knife that comes with a legion of practical uses. The GI Tanto's broad blade, integral quillon guard and Polypropylene handle scales exemplify a tactical knife stripped down to its bare essentials. Made from spring tempered 1055 carbon steel and protected by a rust resistant finish, it's rugged, hard-wearing and dependable. Popular with sport throwers, the GI Tanto is perfectly balanced and capable of being thrown by the blade or handle. In a survival or self-defense situation, it can be quickly and easily converted into a spear too. Just remove the handle scales and lash the blade securely to a suitable wooden shaft.
