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.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.

Cons: None
An excellent knife
This has super high quality and a razor sharp blade! The handle is very comfortable as well.I use it for everyday use such as opening packages, boxes, etc. However, the blade clip is way too tight, I had to bend it upwards with pliers so that if would slide into my pocket with more ease.

No more than average
I was a fan of the old axis-lock style recon 1s, but the new types are a big step down in quality. Nothing in particular stands out as great. It's the right size for EDC in places with length restrictions, the blade performance is average, as is the locking mechanism. The handle material is too rough; it damaged the material of my pocket through abrasion when using the pocket clip. The clip itself is excessively tight and the lip is too small. I had to remove it and reshape it with some pliers before I could get it clipped to my jeans. When using the knife, I've found the clip ends up sticking into the base of my fingers, making it somewhat uncomfortable to use for long periods. Finally, the black coating on the blade is very fragile and wears off quickly, which seems to be a common complaint with Cold Steel knives these days. All in all, I'd say it's a fairly average contender in the $60 folder category. You could do worse, and you could to better.
