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.

Customer Reviews

Very strong and sharp.
USMCBASS
Difficult to close - It is release for the locking mechanism is very stiff and takes some effort to press it down to close the knife.
Dr. Wally M. Viray
Cold Steel makes excellent knives and I find they are priced very reasonably for what you are getting.

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 bought this knife thru Amazon to be an EDC ( everyday carry ) knife. It is genuine Cold Steel and not an imitation. Due to the size, I may only be able to use it for EDC part of the time. One disappointing thing is that the handle material is so rough and the pocket clip so tight that it makes it nearly impossible to clip to your pocket. If you did force it onto your pocket it will A) quickly wear a hole on the edge of your pocket due to the roughness on the handle and B) make it extremely difficult to pull out the knife when you need to use it.

An extra clip is included to convert it to left hand carry if desired. The thumb stud is also adjustable for lefties or righties.

One good thing about the handle material being so grippy ( reminds me of rough sandpaper ) is that it will stay vertical in your pocket and won't fall on its side, causing a huge sideways bulge in your pocket.

This is a large, intimidating knife. It will definitely raise a few eyebrows when you pull this knife out of your pocket. Excellent Cold steel quality all the way through and sharp enough to easily shave hair off your arm right out of the box, dangerously sharp! Easy one handed opening, but it takes two hands to close.

Dimensions are 9 1/4 inches open, 4 inch blade, 5 3/8 inches closed,
Handle is 1/2 inch thick, Knife is 1 1/2 inches front to back when closed.

I will carry this knife when I can, but there will be many times when it will just not be practical to do so. I'll probably end up still carrying my Gerber, Spyderco or CRKT knives just as much if not more than the Recon 1. This knife would be great for self defense, but if you pulled it out for some mundane daily task, you will get some strange looks from people ( looking like Holy S@%!
