Cold Steel popular in movies, it seems!

    Again we see appearance in Hollywood movies of Cold Steel products. I think that, together with Spyderco, this might be the brand with more relevance and roles in action/war/etc. movies all over the world.

    This time I spotted what is undoubtedly a Tanto from CS (I bet a master Tanto?) in the new Ghost In The Shell film, where Scarlett Johansson picks it as her knife of choice.


    Another tanto appears further in the film, very briefly and quick but I'm sure it was a Kobun

    And in the great, exceptionally made John Wick 2 I was expecting to see again John's automatic (a Microtech OTF)


    but two great surprises were the Counter Tac I, carried by an assassin


    and the Safe Maker Push Dagger that this chick chooses as her weapon for CQC situations.



    Love to see my favorite brand in films, it's knife nut kind of fun :thumbsup:

    Whenever I think of Cold Steel knives on film the first thing that comes to mind is the push dagger scene from Platoon.

    Yeah, it makes sense really. Action movies generally want knives that are aggressive, combative, or dangerous looking, and really, Cold Steel, with their large focus on defensive/fighting blades, is naturally something they might gravitate towards.

    I am thinking(Scarlett's knife) it is an Oyabun unless they darkened the guard and pommel or removed the coating from the blade of the newer Taiwan version.
