Today’s military operators carry the most advanced gear in human history, but a high quality blade is still essential equipment on the battlefield. For these discerning customers, Cold Steel has created the Chaos series of hard use tactical fixed blades.
Inspired by the trench knives carried in the World Wars of the 20th century, Cold Steel is updating the concept with some of the most fearsome historic blades to ever grace the battlefield.
The original trench knife was developed for close quarters combat (CQC) and earned a terrifying reputation in the trench raids of the Battle of the Bulge. The combination of “brass knuckles” and either a spike or double-edged blade proved so effective, that development of new designs continued through the Second World War.
The 80NTST Chaos Stiletto channels the spirit of those historic designs. With an 8-inch triple-edged spike blade and skull crusher pommel, the Chaos Stiletto is all about thrusting and smashing! Being made of SAE 4140 carbon steel, it can stand up to plenty of abuse and it comes with fantastic sharp edges right from the factory, so it is ready to rock straight out of the box.
The Chaos features a split D-ring handle constructed of 6061 aluminum. Not only does this signature trench knife feature protect the users hands from slippage and incoming attacks, it also provides a striking surface for combat situations. Likewise, the butt of the knife features a deadly tapered pommel to concentrate the percussive force of a hammering strike.
As good as the blade is, you need a way to carry it, so Cold Steel sees fit to supply a tough Secure-Ex sheath. Here at KnifeCenter, we especially appreciate that it is both MOLLE-Lok and Tek-Lok compatible. This rough-and-ready item also comes with adjustable Cor-Ex belt loops and retaining straps, ensuring maximum safety and retention. The sheath can also be customized to nearly any preferred attachment, thanks to extra grommets and slots along the edges.
The Chaos series combines maximum safety and security with extreme performance and combat potential. Equip yourself with one!
