Cold Steel has just introduced the latest series of their Leatherneck family of knives – the Mini Leatherneck. The Mini Leatherneck knives are made from a Kray-Ex grip combined with an 8Cr13MoV steel blade for easy sharpening. The new knives are supposed to retail for between $26 and $30 and will come with a sheath suited for each blade style.

Cold Steel’s Reimagining of the Fixed-Blade – The Mini Leatherneck
With its compact size, sturdy build, and robust grip, the Mini Leatherneck is an optimal balance between traditional fixed blades that may be too big and folders that may be too small for the mission. The Mini Leatherneck is easy to carry, diverse in function, and perfect any time you need a manageable knife with a big attitude.”

Cold Steel says the new knives are geared towards tactical, hunting, and everyday carry applications with three different blade styles to choose from. The Mini Leatherneck will be made available with a Tanto, Double Edge Spearpoint, and a stout Clip Point. Each blade will be 3.5″ long with an additional 3.25 inches worth of handle made from Kray-Ex material making them both compact and ergonomic. You can think of the Kray-Ex material as being a sort of hard rubber that has just a little bit of “give” to it making it easy to grip but incredibly compact.
The new Leatherneck knives are not currently available for sale from cold steel yet but are coming soon. The Mini Leatherneck Clip Point and Tanto will be sold for $29.99, while the Double Edge Spear Point will be sold for $25.99.
