CS27TLCTH: CTS-XHP Recon 1 Tanto 50/50 Edge
Cold Steel
Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and the 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 on this special run model are made from CTS-XHP stainless steel with a black DLC coating. Carpenter powdered steels like XHP offer an elevated amount of carbon that appreciably improves edge retention and strength. 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 the revolutionary Tri Ad lock, which practically precludes lock failure. To make the Recon 1 as easy to open and carry as possible, each knife is equipped 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!

Pros: None
Cons: None
I'm a former Marine turned career prosecutor. When my cops put together a big case and secure a conviction, I give them a Cold Steel Tanto to increase the odds that they'll come home at the end of future shifts and wake up to catch the next bad guy. My cops are society's apex predators, and a Cold Steel TantoTanto is another insurance policy -- if not the last line of defense -- for the Thin Blue Line. Blue Lives Matter!
