Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry, and the Recon 1 tactical folder has set a standard that’s hard to beat. It is tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw! Every facet of its' construction has been over-engineered to make it as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible.
The blade is made out of CPM-S35VN stainless steel that’s been vacuum heat treated and sub zero quenched, and the handle features 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 compliment the super tough blade and handle, it features Cold Steels' revolutionary Tri Ad™, which practically precludes lock failure.
To compliment the tactical mission, the blade has a tough black Tuff Ex finish. This coating offers three major advantages for use on tactical blades. First; it helps the blade to resist rust. Second; it eliminates glare and light reflections which may give its user away. 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 carry as possible, the knife is equipped with a small, extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties take note. It's diminutive size doesn’t abrade and irritate the palm under protracted use.
Also available with Recon 1 Tanto Point with Partially Serrated edge blade.
