Black Talon II, Folding Knife with CPM S35VN steel blade Plain edge
The original Cold Steel® Black Talon was a revolutionary knife in many ways. A handmade, limited edition folder, it featured a modified curved talon blade* made from Japanese San Mai® steel, a sleek titanium frame with G-10 scales and - for its time - a very strong locking mechanism.
Fans have begged Cold Steel® to release a revised version of this classic blade, so Cold Steel® happily obliged with a re-designed knife that was christened the Black Talon II.
A design collaboration between Lynn C. Thompson and custom knife maker Andrew Demko, the Black Talon II features the distinctive down-swept point and pronounced belly of the original, but with satin-polished S35VN steel and a re-designed tip for added durability.
The G-10 scales offer maximum retention and grip even in cold or wet conditions, while still being kind on your clothing when drawn from the pocket. The contrast between the deep black of the scales and the exquisite rich satin-polished blade further emphasizes the flair and style of this good-looking and elegant folder.
Featuring Cold Steel®'s high-performance Tri-Ad® locking mechanism for added safety, this thin, lightweight and eye-catching knife is sure to be the talking point of anyone's collection!
2020 Model - The Black Talon II with plain edged S35VN steel blade replaces the discontinued CTS® XHP steel version (Product No. CST-22BT).
