Cold Steel
 
Introducing the Micro Recon 1's. With a 2 inch blade they share most of the features of their larger counterparts. The only differences are the handle slabs are made of Griv-Ex style G-10, and the pocket clip has been replaced with a small key ring.

Recon 1® Series

Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and our Recon 1® tactical folders are setting a standard that's hard to beat. Why? Because they are as tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw!

With a 2 inch blade they share most of the features of their larger counterparts. The only differences are the handle slabs are made of G-10 Griv-Ex™ Style, and the pocket clip has been replaced with a small key ring. Every facet of their construction has been over engineered to make them as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible. The blades are made out of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched and the handles feature G-10 laminate scales 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 complement their super tough blades and handles they're equipped with our revolutionary Tri-Ad lock™ , which practically precludes lock failure.

To complement their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex™ finish. Our testing has shown this coating offers three major advantages for tactical blades. First, it helps the blade to resist rust. Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections, which may give its user away. And third, it's a superior lubricant, which causes 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. What's more its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Material
I LOVE IT / (FAKE G10)
Goes along with my keys, if you forget your knife you still have 2" of working blade or protection.It came sharp out of the box and it took a little bit of practice but i eventually was able to flick open the little bugger. The handles are FAKE G10 which was a huge turn off for me considering the price it would be for cold steel to put real G10 on such a small handle. The handles have good texture but they aren't G10 and have worn down faster. Overall its a good knife, but knife center should change the title of the knife to FAUX g10 so the customer immediately knows what they are getting.

Great little knife!
It locks, it cuts and it slips in your pocket and you won't know it's there until you need it. Typical of cold steel blades this thing is so sharp i could shave with it. I am happy with my purchase and plan to buy its big brother when it is available.
