With a blade that resembles an oversized chef knife, the Facón can trace its roots back to the 14th century where it was widely used and carried by just about everyone, from peasant and serf all the way up to the landed nobility. In fact, it was so popular it jumped the Atlantic Ocean with the first European immigrants and became established throughout North and South America.

Now Cold Steel® is delighted to present an own version of this iconic knife. Forged in the classic shape from 1090 high carbon steel, its wide, thick blade measures a full 12 in. (approx. 30.5cm) and offers extensive hand-filed jimping along the spine. The handle is also hand-carved in traditional fashion out of exotic Malaysian sal wood and capped fore and aft with a nickeled steel bolster and pommel. Even the scabbard of Cold Steel®'s big Facón continues to follow Argentina's tradition by being molded out of thick black leather that is sewn with a center seam and equipped with a fancy nickeled steel chape.

1090 High Carbon Steel

1090 high carbon steel is an excellent choice for larger fixed blades. It takes and holds a good edge while remaining tough enough to withstand even Cold Steel®'s brutal stress tests. It is a good all-around performance high carbon steel that is very forgiving under shock.
