Product Description

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! 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.

If you take a look at my review of the Cold Steel Recon 1 Clip Point,* you will see that I am a huge fan of this knife. I had originally purchased the Recon 1 Tanto Point, which provided a longer blade, stronger lock, and grippier handle than my Emerson Super CQC-7 -- and at 1/3 the price! I later bought the Recon 1 Clip Point, which had an even more versatile blade shape, suitable for both EDC and SD applications. So when Cold Steel announced a spear point version for 2012, I couldn't wait.

The Recon 1 Spear Point is identical to the clip and tanto point versions in its ultra-strong Triad lock and ultra-grippy G-10 handle. The shape of its 4" blade is very similar to that of the clip point version, although the spear point has less belly and a broader (stronger) tip. (But if you're at all concerned about the narrowness of the tip on the clip point, have a look at thecajunblaze's brutal tests on YouTube!)

In addition to the new blade shape, I noticed two other changes on the spear point model. The first was the shape of the pocket clip. The new clip is similar to the one used in Cold Steel's Voyager series, curving down to the handle and then up again. This is in contrast to the older clip, which contacted the handle at the vertex of a sharp angle. The spear point's clip came extremely tight, as on my other Recon 1s, which I remedied with some gentle bending, followed by sanding the G-10 under the clip.

The second change is the "Tuff-Ex" finish, which Cold Steel is using in place of Teflon in 2012. (This is in keeping with Cold Steel's move away from several other brand name materials -- "Kray-Ex" replaces Kraton, "Griv-Ex" replaces Grivory, and we are even seeing "faux" G-10 on the new Micro Recon 1.

Received this bad boy today. I had ordered and returned 2 of the same model SOG which both had blade-play. Heard nothing but good things about the Recons so I ordered up the Spear point as I was on the fence between a tanto or a clip point blade. The Spear appears to be the best of both worlds. Lockup on this sucker is ultra tight! No wiggle at all. Very ergonomic frame/handle and smooth as butter opening and closing! If all Cold Steel products are this high quality for the $70 price point then I'm all in!

I have no regrets about buying this knife. It came oiled and razor sharp. The handle is as amazingly comfortable as everyone describes it as. I love the blade style as well. It might not look as "cool" as the clip point or tanto, but it has a simple elegance to it. The g-10 grip is great and ensures a firm grip on the knife. However, I do recommend sanding or filing down the grip at the point where the clip meets the grip. You don't need to do much, but you can sand down the complete lower third of the handle if you want to. Some people don't like to sand it down because they feel like they don't want to take away from the overall look of the knife, but if you sand it down evenly and uniformly, the handle still looks great. The black coating on the blade does come off easily so don't be disappointed when it happens. However, this is no way diminishes the quality or usefulness of the knife. Let it have scratches and scuffs, it lets people know you use it. Anyways, I bought this when the price was at $60 and am very satisfied. You could watch the knife and wait for the price to drop if you wish, but whatever happens, I highly recommend you buy this knife. It really is a great buy.

I have had many knives from many makers; Ka-Bar, Spyderco, Gerber, Buck, Kershaw, etc. This is my first Cold Steel knife I have bought, and I must say I was very please when I opened the package to this knife this morning. Now I have not gone out and beat the hell out of it (if you would like to see how cold steel knives hold up under a beating, there about a million videos on YouTube for that) but just from my close inspection I can tell this knife was well designed, and well made. It is comparable to knives that cost twice as much from other makers, if not even better then those knives. The knife is actually a bit bigger then I thought it was going to be, yet is not extremely bulky or heavy. When I have it in my pocket it really doesn't feel any different then my previous EDC that is much smaller. The knife is solid. Deploys easy, and locks into place with a firm click. The blade came pretty sharp, and the protective coating on the blade is nice and thick so it doesn't look like it will be scratching off with every scrape. There is no play with the blade at all...once you have it locked out it feels like a fixed blade knife. The handle material is light, but sturdy..and in my opinion will most likely far outlast the life of the blade with normal use. It also creates a firm grip when you are holding it, I doubt this knife will be slipping out of my hands if I don't want it too, even with gloves on. The only issue I have is with the belt clip, as other reviews have mentioned, its a bit tight, and with the material of the handle, makes it difficult the deploy the knife because it's damn hard to get the clip off jeans. That however can be easily remedied by simply bending out the clip a little bit so the grip is not so tight. Cold Steel has got my recommendation and I have found my new EDC. I look forward to purchasing many more knives from Cold Steel.
