Here is a very rare Cold Steel Tanto 13A Hoffritz Logo. Original early model, old original 1st run blade stamps.

Bought this back in the 80's, one of the few knives I had back then that didn't come up missing, wasn't with the others.... Was my carry knife..

VERY early run, back when they were ground and finished by hand. :cool:

It’s hard for me to pass up the 940. Ordinary slicer but does everything else so bloody well.

I usually carry two knives plus the Caplifter but I found two others in my coat so I put them all in the pic. Only three are on my person. :)

I got it after I finished boot camp in '82.

It was made in 1981 though, I got very lucky and didn't realize back then what it was when I bought it.

That was 38 ago years now.

They went though changes with the runs so it's pretty easy to narrow down when they were made.

It's actually a significant knife in history when it comes to Tanto's.

I really love this knife! I can see it being one of the very few "other's" I've had the past few years that actually sticks around longer than a year.

My second Large 21 came in today. All I need, I sold all my other folders besides my three traditionals I have so far, and two fixed blades.
