A top quality and reliable folding clip knife, the Recon 1 with 4″ tanto blade forged from high carbon stainless steel and coated with non-reflection and nearly frictionless black Teflon is more than enough knife for serious work. Light weight (5.6 ounces) and a folded length of only 5 1/3″ make this full sized tanto inconspicuous and easy to carry. Much more than this and you’ll need a belt sheath.
Spring assisted one handed opening works with either hand, and the patented Ultra Lock blade lock has a “never fail” feel. The strong clip can be attached to either side of the Zytel steel reinforced handle, for efficient deployment with either right or left hand.
The grip is shaped well enough to be secure and safe, although if you want this knife to double as a utility blade the textured Zytel may be a blister maker compared to traditional materials. Designed for concealment and penetration, the combo edged tanto blade may not be the best choice if you want an all around camp knife or folding skinner, but Cold Steel makes the Recon 1 in enough blade styles that anyone should find one that fits their needs.
Using the best modern materials and state of the art manufacturing methods, Cold Steel knives are at the top level of the urban defense market. People who buy them are not disappointed.
