Recon Tanto with SK-5 high carbon steel blade and black Tuff-Ex? finish
Over the last 35 years, Cold Steel has succeeded in establishing the Tanto as a superior blade for combative application. The
pioneering research, development and refinement of this blade shape by Cold Steel's company President Lynn C. Thompson have proven
the value of the American Tanto-styled reinforced point beyond question. Cold Steels signature Tanto point is specially
reinforced to stay sharp even when encountering some of the world's toughest materials!
The Recon Tanto was designed for today?s modern warriors. It was developed to withstand the harshest abuse and the roughest
possible conditions and continues to redefine the standard for combat knives around the globe. Having seen active military
application in numerous conflicts over the last 20 years, it is a much loved and appreciated knife by the U.S. Military and law
enforcement special units.
This version of the Recon Tanto is made from SK-5 steel and comes complete with a Secure-Ex® sheath.
