CS27TMS: Mini Recon 1 Spear 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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Type, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality
The lock is it's best feature.
Pros:Andrew Demko's tri-ad lock.Sharp blade otb.....Cons:G-10 handles are too rough,feel like sand paper..Pocket clip is short,and way too tight.This knife will have to be modified for edc in order to keep from tearing the seam on pants pockets.The tuff-ex blade coating is useless,and i have no idea why they even bother with it..And a con for some,Aus8 steel.IMO,Aus8 is an ok for a folder under $50..Overall,this folder is a decent deal for the price only because of it's locking system..Matter of fact,take away Demko's tri-ad lock,and this folder doesn't compare to the competitions offerings around the same price point in terms of steel,fit and finish,and ergonomics..

Cons: None
Great quality blade
I bought this for EDC and it has been a great knife. After a few openings and closings, it deploys very quickly. It's sharp right out of the box and so far has stayed very that way. The course handles make it very easy to grip but are a little rough on your pants. I fixed that with a small piece of tape on the back. The fit and finish of this knife is very good and would be something you would expect on a more expensive product. The Axis locking system is superb, definitely one of the best out there, locks up as tight as a fixed blade. So far very happy with this purchase and will probably buy the micro to go with it. Shipping was quick, sale price was great.
