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!)

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.Read more ›
