Description
CS27TLTH: Recon 1 Tanto Point 50/50 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, 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!

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
does not disappoint
I am generally always pleased with Cold Steel knives, and the Recon is no exception, the G10 handle is kevlar reinforced, which makes certain that the surface remains no-slip, the blade comes factory sharpened and retains its edge very well. The locking mechanism is on the spine of the knife, which isnt particularly ergonomic for one-handed deployment/securing, but it is a hefty lock, and the blade itself is not going to move no matter what strain you put on the mechanism. All in all a liner-lock system would be preferable for this knife in my opinion, but otherwise it is one of the best folding knives I have ever owned.
