CS27TXLT: 27TXLT XL Recon 1 Tanto 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.

Pros: None
Cons: None
I searched several sites for this knife and found knifecenter to have the best price. The blade came out of the box extremely sharp and ready to use. Now be prepared, this IS a very large knife and even though it will fit in your pocket it is heavy and will have a profile. But for what it is designed for i can't imagine a better buy or a better knife.

Simply Amazing
I bought this knife over a year ago and carry it with me everywhere I go. This is an amazing tool to have. It's a bit over kill when using it for little things like opening boxes, but the size of it makes any job a breeze, just don't be an idiot and try to cut through branches or wood with it. It's maintained its sharp edge through countless uses, I haven't had to sharpen it once, though I don't use it very often. The only con I can think of, and this isn't even really a con, is the clip. It's stiff and may damage your jeans after repeated use, but I like how it's stiff, making sure it doesn't come off. Also when it's in your pocket it has a very low profile, making it look like a small pocket knife and not the Kraken sized monster of a knife it is. It also comes with two clips so you can choose to clip it on your left or right pocket I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a professional grade pocket knife
