The Cold Steel Kobun is a lightweight knife
that takes its name from the Japanese underworld, where the word
"Kobun" is sometimes used as an indicator of rank that suggests the
word "soldier"in, or one who takes orders from his "Oyabun"
or boss. It's a fitting name for a knife like the Kobun, which was effectively
designed to be "a good soldier".
Proven to be incredibly popular with
the Military, where it's prized for its light weight and discreet profile as
much as its durability and cutting potential. The Kobun features Cold Steels
iconic reinforced "American Tanto" point, making it 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). Despite its
thin profile, the Kobun's deeply checkered Kray-Ex handle is designed to offer
maximum grip and is contoured to resist turning or shifting in the hand.
