Cold Steel Knives is a great American edged weapon company. Cold Steel has a myriad of great products and chief among them is a great variety of tanto shaped fixed blades.

You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is more info from Cold Steel Knives:
Cold Steel has followed up the popularity of their Finn Bear and Pendleton Lite Hunter with the more economical Tanto Lite.
This 6 inch fixed blade is made out of 4116 Krupp Stainless Steel, which is a fine grained steel made by ThyssenKrupp in Germany that balances carbon and chromium for strength and edge retention while strongly resisting corrosion. The Tanto’s handles are made of Kraton, which is deeply checkered to provide an excellent grip that will hold up under anything nature can throw at you. The core of the knife handle is made of polypropylene, which completely encases the tanto’s full tang, the same proven design as this knife’s more expensive cousins all of which can be found at www.knifecenter.com. Cold Steel includes a pouch-style Cordura sheath for the Tanto Lite, which features a belt loop for easy carrying while out in the field. You can really depend on this knife to come through when you need it.
