Recon 1 – Tanto Point Combo


  • 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!
  • 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 compliment their super tough blades and handles they are equipped with our revolutionary Tri Ad lock® which practically precludes lock failure.
  • To compliment their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough, black, Teflon® 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-Teflon® coated blade.
  • To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knife with a thumb disc and 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.
  • Thin, light, sharp and incredibly tough, the Recon 1® is willing and able to aid you on your next mission!
