Recon 1® Tanto Point, Folder with AUS 8A stainless steel blade Half-serrated edge
A popular knife with Military and Law Enforcement Personnel, Fire and Rescue crews and civilians, Cold Steel®'s Recon 1® Series continues to set the standard for tactical folding knives. These dependable knives have a hard-earned reputation for reliability and strength. The Recon 1® Series is available in various sizes and every facet of their construction has been engineered to make them as durable and effective as possible. Every model in this diverse series features Cold Steel®'s world-renowned Tri-Ad® lock, keeping your precious fingers safe from harm when using your knife in even the most taxing conditions. From the sturdy little workhorse that is the Micro to the beastly cutting power of the classic series - whatever your mission, the Recon 1® is there for you!
The Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel blade has been vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched. Additionally, it has been given a tough black Tuff-Ex™ finish. Tests have shown that this coating offers three major advantages for tactical blades: First, it helps the blade to resist rust. Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections. And third, it is a superior lubricant that allows the blade to slip through even tough material with markedly less friction. This means you can cut deeper and far longer than with a non-Tuff-Ex™ coated blade.
The G-10 handle scales are artfully contoured and scalloped for a terrific non-slip grip. Plus, they are held together by the latest in high-strength mechanical fasteners and further anchored by a 6061 heat-treated spacer.
To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible, each knife is equipped with a thumb disc and a small, extra-strong pocket clip. Lefties may take note that the clip is completely ambidextrous. What's more, its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.
AUS 8A Stainless Steel
Cold Steel® has been using the same expertly heat-treated Japanese AUS 8A steel for nearly 3 decades. This steel has tested amazingly well over the years and has proven to be an excellent steel for working knives - tough, corrosion resistant, with good edge holding and easy to re-sharpen.
