These are all good choices. They are the blades that put Cold Steel on the map in the first place. They aren't cheap, though. Does a knife like this complement your fighting style? In my martial arts class we train with wooden versions of this shape, so this type suits me much better than, say, a bowie or similar tactical fighter. But if you're studying FMA or Indonesian arts, then maybe a kerambit would be a better fit.I would like to get a Cold Steel Tanto but there are so many models and sizes to choose from. What size do you recommend ? Which brand/model do you recommend?
Since you live in Florida, your CCW permit allows you to carry any length you want, and some people ascribe to the "longer is better" school of thought. But it really depends on your style - are you thinking of whipping out a large blade for intimidation value? A Cold Steel Ti Lite is pretty strong in that department. Or, do you favor a smaller blade to conceal and bring out at the last second for surprise effect? Those are questions only you can answer.
