Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry, and the Recon 1 tactical folder has set a standard that’s hard to beat. It is tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw! Every facet of its' construction has been over-engineered to make it as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible.
The blade is made out of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that’s been vacuum heat treated and sub zero quenched, and the handle features G-10 laminate scales, massively reinforced by heat treated steel liners and five locking bolts. To compliment the super tough blade and handle, it features Cold Steels' revolutionary Ultra Lock™, which practically precludes lock failure.
To compliment the tactical mission, the blade has a tough black Teflon® finish. This coating offers three major advantages for use on tactical blades. First; it helps the blade to resist rust. Second; it eliminates glare and light reflections which may give its user away. 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 carry as possible, the knife is equipped with a small, extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties take note. It's diminutive size doesn’t abrade and irritate the palm under protracted use like a larger clip would. What's more, the Recon 1 can hold up to 200 pounds!
