Black as a moonless night, silent as the grave these are the qualities that make up the lightweight Nightshade series. Made from Griv-Ex the latest in fiberglass reinforced plastic, and stronger than even the super tough Zy-Ex used in earlier models they are UV and heat stabilized, making them impervious to the elements.
One of the most unique features of these knives is their handles. They are made from deeply checkered Kray-Ex that has been molded directly to the blade tangs. The use of Kray-Ex in knife handles is a Cold Steel innovation that dates back to the early 1980's. It has been readily copied by most of competitors because it offers a superior, slightly tacky gripping surface that is unaffected by heat, cold, or moisture. It never rusts, warps, cracks or splits even in the most extreme environments.
Nightshade knives are light enough to be tied, tucked, or taped just about anywhere on one's person. And, since they are impervious to heat, cold, moisture and extreme weather they are a natural to hide both inside and outside your house. They can be hidden virtually everywhere from the hedges and flowerpots in your yard, to the refrigerator, bookshelves, and closets in your house. Keep one in every room of the house, from the laundry room to the bathroom shower! With violent home invasions on the rise a strategically placed Nightshade could save the day, and even your life.
