    Recon 1® series
    Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and our Recon 1® tactical folders are setting a standard that's hard to beat. Why? Because they are as tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw!

    Available with 3 and 4 in blades, every facet of their construction has been over engineered to make them as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible. The blades are made out of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched and the handles feature G-10 laminate scales artfully contoured and scalloped for a terrific non slip grip. Plus, they are held together by the latest in high strength mechanical fasteners and further anchored by a 6061 heat-treated spacer. To complement their super tough blades and handles they're equipped with our revolutionary Tri-Ad lock™ , which practically precludes lock failure.

    To complement their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex™ finish. Our testing has shown this coating offers three major advantages for tactical blades. First, it helps the blade to resist rust. Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections, which may give its user away. And third, it's a superior lubricant, which causes the blade to slip through even tough material with markedly less friction. This means you can cut deeper and far longer than with a non-Tuff-Ex™ coated blade. To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knife with a thumb stud and a small, extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties please take note. What's more its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.

    Micro Recon 1
    Introducing the Micro Recon 1's. With a 2 inch blade they share most of the features of their larger counterparts. The only differences are the handle slabs are made of G-10 Griv-Ex™ Style, and the pocket clip has been replaced with a small key ring.

    Knife is exact size it was supposed to be. I didn't realize how small it would be. Other than my own mistake of getting a little knife the knife itself is amazing. So sharp out of the box that I could actually shave with it. I own alot of knifes and this by far is the best quality steel I've ever owned. No more Gerber knifes for me......coldsteel.....you guys know what your doing.

    Thankfully, the stock image and the real life blade are very different. The real life blade is a standard Cold Steel tanto shape, and not the terrible Strider-like design that the stock image depicts.

    I bought one of these for my sister (I thought the spear point would be more useful for EDC, but she insisted on the tanto) and she absolutely loves it, telling me that it cuts very well. Holding it in my hand, the ergonomics are surprisingly good for such a small knife. Deployment could be a little better (this knife would probably be better off with a nail nick rather than a thumb stud due to its size), but that's the only criticism I have for it. Great knife!

    I received this recon1 as a gift. It appears and feels to be very sturdy. This knife was very sharp right out of the box. I will repost after I've put sometime in with this knife
