CS27TMC: Mini Recon 1 Clip Point, Plain Edge
Cold Steel
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!

Available with 3 and 4 in blades, 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. To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knife with a thumb stud and a 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.

great knife!!!
I bought this knife as an everyday carry knife fire to its 3" blade which is the legal length for a concealed carry knife where i live. I have abused this thing to heel and back and it is just as solid now as out was from day one. I have seen all kinds of hype on the cold steel company and figured i would give one a shot. Believe the hype!!! Cold steel is the real deal. Only complaint i would have is the coating on the blade, but for what i put it through i came sayi am surprised the coating it looks the way it does. It did start to chip before the real abuse came though.

Great little EDC
This is a nice little EDC knife that looks great and is tough as nails. Came razor sharp out of the box, has no blade play whatsoever with very tight lock up thanks to the excellent and dependable Tri-Ad locking mechanism. My only gripe is the G10 handle scales have very aggressive texturing, which gives you a nice grippy feel, but will shred your pants pockets fast when clipped to your side. However, you could always sand the G10 down underneath the pocket clip if you wanted to.
