The Kobun is a lightweight Tanto styled boot knife. It takes its namesake from the Japanese martial or underworld where the word "Kobun" means "soldier". It's a fitting name for a knife like the Kobun which was effectively designed to be "a good soldier". In profile it closely resembles our Master Tanto but it sports a thinner blade and that supports its main function; to be a light weight boot knife.
Like the Tantos it features the Tanto styled reinforced point. This contrasts sharply with most boot knives on the market today which are notorious for their paper thin points which are easily broken or bent. In contrast the Kobun's point is 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.
The Kobun's deeply checkered Kraton handle is designed to offer minimum bulk with maximum grip. Its cross section was made as thin as possible (approximately 1/2 inch) then contoured to resist turning or shifting in the hand. The Kobun comes complete with a Secure- Ex sheath.
