Black Bear Classic with San Mai® steel blade
This classic sub-hilt design fighter was first developed by Bob Loveless, one of the founding members of the knifemaker's guild. It's perhaps the quintessential combat knife.
Its approx. 21 cm (8 in.) blade offers excellent reach and incredible penetration with very little physical effort. The sub-hilt practically eliminates the possibility of the hand being dislodged or coming into contact with the blade. Plus, it facilitates rapid and effortless withdrawal after insertion. The VG-10 San Mai® blade is perfectly heat-treated and a double grind is expertly applied. Then the surface of the blade is polished to a beautiful satin finish and the edges are honed and buffed to hair-shaving sharpness! The black G-10 scales are fastened to the blade tang by 6 stainless pins and expertly hand-shaped and contoured.
San Mai® comprises of three layers of expertly laminated stainless steel combined into one blade. Hard high-carbon steel is sandwiched between two layers of tough lower carbon spring steel, thus maximizing edge holding ability while still being able to withstand impact and lateral stresses. Produced in extremely small production runs, San Mai® is used only on Cold Steel®'s most collectible high-end fixed blades and is a registered trademark of Cold Steel® worldwide!
