CS27TLC: Recon 1 Clip Point Plain Edge
Cold Steel

Cold Steel describes this item as follows:

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! 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 compliment their super tough blades and handles they are equipped with our revolutionary Tri Ad lock (see page 4), which practically precludes lock failure.

To compliment their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough, black, Teflon 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-Teflon coated blade. To make the Recon 1 as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knife with a thumb disc and small extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties please take note. What's more its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.

Thin, light, sharp and incredibly tough, the Recon 1 is willing and able to aid you on your next mission!

It's a Big Boy!
When it arrived my first thought was Boy, This Is Big! I threw it in the truck and did think much of it..until the next time I was at the farm. I had to cut some small trees that were obstracting a narrow road. This was the only sharp tool I had with me so I proceeded to clear the roadway with this knife. I am impressed, now this knife comes with me every time I am outdoors. Sharpness, edge retention and lock up are unbelievable.

Solid Blade
I was heavily disappointed when it said made in Taiwan. They don't really advertise that on Cold Steel's website. And then second blow was the very uneven ground blade. one side had a very steep angle (40 deg) and a slight angle on the other side (25 deg). It took me hours to regrind it to an acceptable level.. That having been said, after it was sharpened properly it is hanusly sharp. And it keeps an edge well. The lockup is just unbelievably tight and that I do enjoy. Ergonomics are outstanding and the grip is awesome even with greasy hands. For such a large knife the weight is outstanding. the coating is kinda cheesy but I sure didn't buy it for the coating. Functionally this knife is top notch. I beat the snot out of it daily and I can easily tell that's what it was designed for.
