Overview

CUSTOS (kuhs-tos) n. : keeper, custodian, guard

When designing the Ban Tang Custos, compact dimensions and light weight were imperative. Ease of carry make this an round the clock companion, able to both see you through the mundane and keep pace when life turns you down a dark alley. Ultra-light and astonishingly sharp are vast understatements.

The Custos is made of S35VN and features a convex ground edge for impressively clean, razor-sharp cuts. A thin, flat blade keeps the knife fast and light to work with. The full size, resin soaked cord handle offers exemplary grip. A user configurable sheath is compatible with small Tek-Loks, soft loops with Pull-The-DOT snaps, or shock cord carry.

Minimalist design and lightweight build allow the Ban Tang Custos to serve as an ever-present concealable guardian.

Features:
  • Resin impregnated cord wrap handle

  • S35VN, ultra-sharp convex ground edge

  • Kydex slip sheath

Behind the Scenes with Ban Tang

Ban Tang has always been captivated by sharp edges, a trait that lay the foundation for his distinctive style and has since been echoed through all of his creations. Completely self taught, he began making knives professionally in 2007 and has since refined his approach as he's grown as knifemaker. He believes a knife's principle function, to cut well, should never be sacrificed. He strives to perfect this as closely as possible with each of his designs, resulting in precise knives with balanced edge geometry and razor sharp blades like you've never seen before.
