Product Description

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.

Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry. The Recon 1 continues the trend with its tough-as-nails build and chainsaw-like performance, setting a standard that's tough to beat. Every facet of the Recon 1's construction has been over-engineered to make it as strong, durable, and effective as humanly possible. The ComboEdge blade is made of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched, while the handle features G-10 laminate scales artfully contoured and scalloped to produce a superior nonslip grip. Plus, the knife is held together by the latest in high-strength mechanical fasteners and further anchored by a 6061 heat-treated spacer.

To complement the knife's tactical mission, Cold Steel gave the Recon 1 a tough, black coated finish, which gives the blade three major tactical advantages. First, it helps the blade resist rust. Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections, which otherwise might give the user away. And third, the knife is coated with 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 the coated blade. Cold Steel also added a thumb disc and extra-strong pocket clip, making the Recon 1 easy to open and carry. The clip is completely ambidextrous, and its small size is designed to keep the palm comfortable under protracted use. Finally, the knife is outfitted with the company's revolutionary Tri Ad lock, which practically eliminates lock failure.

It is a very well made and durable knife.
Dr. Wally M. Viray
The locking mechanism is very tough out of the box but loosened quickly after about 20-30 openings and closings.
Johnny Jawbone
This knife is very sharp right out of the box, nice weight and feel to it.

This is by far the sharpest knife I have ever owned. The blade is at the perfect length and the G10 handle gives great traction in your hand. The clip is reversible and connects at the end of the knife so it does not stick out of your pocket.When I purchased it I twisted up a t-shirt about wrist width and ran the knife through it.It cut it like butter.The only negative thing is that the coating of the blade can be damaged fairly easily. The coating on mine knife is coming off because it is rubbing the inside of the grip where the blade is housed when closed. I would said if you need a durable knife and do not care about the coating I would get this.Great for self defense and everyday tasks.This is the newer version of the Recon 1 which is the better of the two. The older one does not have as good of locking system, is thicker and heavier and the clip is not in a great spot.If you decide on the Recon 1 make sure you dont get the older version.

I own many knives and this folder is definitely my favorite.As already mentioned its very very sharp and holds its edge well.It has a 4" blade and i wont hesitate on using it as a work knife when out camping...and a good self defense weapon to boot.

I got this folder as spare for the one i have,the only difference is the other folder doesnt have the serrated edge.I personally prefer the type without the serration for it works well cutting meat.For a knife with a 4" blade its actually lighter compared to my other folders with shorter blade.

Bottom line is you cant go wrong with Cold Steel..nice craftmanship even tho its made overseas.I prefer US made products but this knife is just too nice to pass up.Try one and you'll see what i mean.

EDIT
Its now Sept.2013 so that's almost 3 years and im still using and enjoying this folder.I even got 2 more over the years for I wanted one in my tackle box and a spare just in case they discontinue or change anything about it. The anodizing is gone on the blades for I use my folder a lot at work but overall it still function as good as it did new.It really is a well built knife.

Just got my knife today. I decide to buy this knife after reading the reviews on amazon.com. Overall very good knife. Very long blade, longer then I expected. The recon 1 fits well in my hand. And the blade is very sharp I know because I cut my self with it and needed stiches.

One problem with the knife, its hard to close and you have to push the lever just right, that's how I cut my self.

I have beaten on this knife for almost a year, it never quits. I have thrown it, stabbed thick steel siding, even made a spear and it still is in one piece. The black finish didn't hold up to well but that just gives the knife character. If you are looking for a good utility survival type knife this is it. I hate writing reviews but this knife deserves one. I have had great knives, ZT's,spyderco's, Kershaws's, even Al Mar, this is still my favorite. If you don't believe me I even made videos on youtube of my throwing, stabbing, and spear tests with more to come.

I will make this short. It's INCREDIBLY sharp, tough and seems durable. I have easily opened boxes, cut through a soda bottle, rope, antenna wire and it's ridiculous how easy it was. No chips on the finish. The locking mechanism is very tough out of the box but loosened quickly after about 20-30 openings and closings. This is a good thing. I want a folder I can open with my thumb, not having to use both hands to access.

I'll say this: Envelopes and boxes do NOT know what's going on when I open them with this knife. One day they're crusing along all sealed shut and blissfully ignorant that I'm lurking in the shadows about to slice them up ninja-style.

Then I come all black ops out of the misty fog and I surgically open them and pull out their entrails. Which is usually a bill or letter from a friend. Sometimes it's packing peanuts.

But all the time, they never see Cold Steel Recon 1 Tactical Knife with G-10 Handle stepping through the smog and creeping through the fog. It just slices and returns back to the pocket from whence I loosed it upon the world.

Then I sound my barbaric "YAWP" and go about my business.

I have never taken a knife out of the box that had this kind of edge on it. Amazing---shreds paper like a razor. Seems very rugged and I'm sure it will handle whatever I throw at it. Don't listen to those claiming it's too big for an E.D.C. folder--- I think it's size is comforting, and fits my jean's pockets great. I don't even notice I'm carrying it after a few days now. This knife is big enough to be a lifesaver, and tough enough to depend on. Watch the vids on youtube if you want to see what cold steel knives will do.
*One caveat---I would clean and lubricate this knife well before using for any length of time. There's some normal manufacturing residue in the lock that a little spray lube will flush out. Now the blade flips out much smoother and faster.---Nice right?

Folding knives are not especially well-suited as survival knives. That said, this is the perfect knife for day-to-day carry and - if necessary - it's one of the few folding knives that will see you home should you find yourself in a survival scenario. For the money, you cannot find a better folding knife. I keep one in my truck, one on my boat ... and one firmly attached to me whenever possible.
