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 their 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 Cold Steel's revolutionary Tri-Ad lock, which practically precludes lock failure.

To complement their tactical mission they have given each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex finish. Cold Steel's 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 they 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.

Nice knife, enough for EDC. Very sharp. It will be perfect with serrated blade.

Like a tank!
Awesome blade, built like a tank. There is no play whatsoever on the blade. I own several EDCs but keep coming back to this one. It's light, thin profile, solid (possibly the best) lock up. Ergonomics are excellent, fits in my hand very nicely (wear large sized gloves). The blade doesn't fly out of the handle but nothing a little wrist-flick action couldn't help. The G-10 scales are about the most aggressive I have ever seen so I sanded mine down on both sides. Mine didn't come razor sharp out of the box but I fixed it on my own. The clip is super strong, I bent mine out just a bit and it's perfect now.

Great knife for scouting and hunting
I am ao carries amulti-use pocket for all emergencies and uses. It is a great small knife for all these thingsThe only drawback is it's hard to closn assistant scoutmaster for a large Boy Scout troop in Houston and I am known as the "knot man" so I needed a multi-use knife for teaching ropes and lashings Also I am a hunter and rancher.
