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!
Except for the Micro Recon 1®, which has a G10-styled Griv-Ex™ handle and a small key ring, all of the Recon 1® knives are equipped with a G-10 handle 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. The handle is artfully contoured and scalloped for a terrific non-slip grip. And to make the Recon 1® as easy to open as possible, each knife features a thumb disc.
2015 Model - The XL Recon 1® Clip Point with U.S. made Carpenter CTS® XHP alloy blade steel featuring DLC-coating replaces the discontinued AUS 8A stainless steel version (Product No. CST-27TXLC).
