CS13RTK: 13RTK Recon Tanto
Cold Steel
Over the last 20 years, Cold Steel® has succeeded in establishing the Tanto as a superior combat blade. The value of the Tanto styled reinforced point is now without question. Our superb Japanese Tantos are still unsurpassed for fit and finish, but are expensive, and beyond the financial reach of many knife enthusiasts. Our Recon Tanto has combined a 7" blade, classic Tanto styling, AUS 8A Stainless steel and a comfortable, western-style Kray-Ex™ handle into an affordable package.

The Recon Tanto is rapidly redefining the standard for combat knives around the globe. It is well on its way to becoming the preferred fixed blade for SWAT teams and special military units. Visit your local dealer and ask about the Recon Tanto. Experience the extraordinary quality and test the distinctive razor sharp edge for yourself and you will see why, as a professional, this is a unique knife you can’t afford to be without!

Upgrade this handle
The Kraton handle eventually gets loose on the tang of the blade...switch to micarta or g10 scales so the blade doesn't go to waste Aghh...

Dear Knife Center staff. Earlier I wrote a review of this knife. I incorrectly referred to the new sheath as a Tuff Ex sheath. Please change that to Secure Ex sheath. Thank you. Harvey

Good Knife for Cheap!
Have the Carbon V version. Came very sharp. Easy to maintain its sharpness too. Sticks very well when thrown, but the handle did become loose and wobbled on the tang. Injected some hot epoxy down in there and that was fixed. Opened some cans and that scraped the black finish off down to the bare metal. Looks terrible. Wish it was DLC coated! The cordura sheath works fine for belt carry and is much quieter than the Tuff Ex type. But you get what you pay for - very inexspensive knife.
