Now Cold Steel is delighted to present our version of this iconic knife. Forged in the classic shape from 1090 high carbon steel with a wide, thick blade it measures a full 12” long and offers extensive hand filed “jimping” along the “spine”. The handle of our Facon is also hand carved in traditional fashion out of exotic Malaysian Sal Wood and is capped fore and aft with a nickeled steel bolster and pommel. Even the scabbard of our big Facon 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.
