Description
CS27TXLC: 27TXLC XL Recon 1 Clip Point
Cold Steel
 
Our Recon 1 series have become, for many people, the ultimate tactical folding knife range.

With a variety of sizes, blade shapes and edge configurations it offers unparalleled diversity, with a knife for virtually any situation. Our high quality materials and world-beating Tri-Ad® lock ensure that even our super-tiny micro series offer a strength and security that our competitors can only dream about.

Ever popular with the Military, Law Enforcement and civilians alike, the Recon 1 series has been tried, tested and proven again and again.

Now, for 2013 we are proud to include additions to the Recon 1 lineage.

Our XL series feature all of the same great performance, cutting power and security of our other Recon series tactical folders, but on an even bigger scale! With monstrously thick, wide 5 1/2" blades (available in both Tanto and Clip Point configurations) they are astonishingly effective but still very easily carried in a pocket or clipped to a waistband.

Bad A** Knife
One scary knife! When I opened the box It look scary , it was scary when I picked it up. It was more than a tool or a knife it was a deadly weapon. I'm lucky I live in a state where we can carry in the open a blade up to 5 1/2". My first knife I carry for first attack is my SOG Spec Elite-2, 4 1/2 blade i believe? I've carried it in a certain way for years and can get to it and have it open in 2 seconds. For now I have to decide where I will carry my new Cold Steel 27TXLC XL Recon 5-1/2" Plain Blade, G10. A jacket or coat pocket would be perfect, but were i live that doesn't happen but maybe 30 days a years. I'm not happy yet about the belt clip, it needs to be a little longer and maybe wider. For now my Cold Steel 27TXLC XL Recon 5-1/2" Plain Blade, will be used by weak hand and carried as a back up until I figure how and where to carry it. Very sharp but not razor sharp. Trust me if you open the knife on someone if they don't have a gun they're going to run.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
great knife but..,.
great knife, one of the best in CSl line, great feel in the hand, great quality, great lock but....why in the hell cost so much?The knife is nothing more than a larger version of a Voyager with G10 ( premium G10) for the handle instead of grivory so why cost the double? However is a very good knife, overall quality is top level ( as standard for CS) very sharp( not razor sharp) that can handle whatever you want it must handle( outdoor activity,EDC, camping,food prep, Self Defence)
