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.

Great Knife
I was going to buy the 4" version of this knife, but I knew if I didn't go for the 5.5" I would regret it. When the knife arrived I was surprised at how big it was. The photos do not do it justice. The thing is built like a tank. It took a few days to get used to it and a few more for it to loosen up enough for a fast open, but that wasn't a problem. For it's size it is quite comfortable to carry. All of my friends were very impressed and at least two of them have bought this knife after seeing mine. You can't go wrong with this one. It is solid and very well made. It wasn't quite as sharp as indicated out of the box, but a few passes over my Arkansas stone and I could shave with it. I'd say I'd buy another one, but I figure this one will last a lifetime.

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.
