Hide Out®, Neck Knife with Double-Edged Blade
Cold Steel®’s Hide Out® was designed as a small, inexpensive and astoundingly functional neck knife. The resulting blade is a true featherweight, weighing a meager 1.9 oz (approx. 43 g)!
Its high satin-polished, double-edged Japanese AUS 8A blade is Scandi ground, which makes it very sharp and also very stiff, allowing for a strong and durable tip, despite its sharpness.
Its full tang is encapsulated in a weatherproof Kray-Ex™ handle that has been designed to be very thin and flat. The handle is subtly contoured and deeply checkered to give the hand great purchase and security on such a small, thin knife, while still enabling effortless transition between grips.
A Secure-Ex® sheath and a bead chain lanyard allow you to wear this knife discreetly and comfortably all day long.
AUS 8A Stainless Steel
Cold Steel® has been using the same expertly heat-treated Japanese AUS 8A steel for nearly 3 decades. This steel has tested amazingly well over the years and has proven to be an excellent steel for working knives – tough, corrosion resistant, with good edge holding and easy to re-sharpen.
