Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and our Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto Knife tactical folder sets 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 its construction has been over engineered to make it as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible. The 4'' blade is constructed of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched. The handle features 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 complement the super tough blade and handle, the Recon 1 is equipped with our revolutionary Tri-Ad lock, which practically precludes lock failure.Each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex 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-Tuff-Ex coated blade. We have equipped each knife with a thumb stud and a small, extra strong pocket clip to make the Recon 1 as easy to open and carry as possible. The clip is suitable for both left- and right-handed users. Blade length: 4''. Overall length: 9-3/8''. Weight: 5.3 oz.

I carry this everyday! I'm not very familiar with a lot of knives so my review might not be worth much in comparison of other knives, but what I do know is that I would buy this knife again without hesitation! I read an article of the best 18 tactical knives and this knife was listed #5 and #1 was the CRKT shenanigan. Naturally I purchased the #1! Well, first of all the blade on the CRKT was actually dull - i was very disappointed, Also, the blade was only 3.25 inches which seemed too short. So, I purchased the Recon with 4" blade and was instantly satisfied! Excellent grip, easy to open with one hand, and excellent secure locking mechanism. Some say it's too large, but I think its PERFECT for everyday carry! Others have complained about the fact that the black wears off the blade - I couldn't care less about that! I actually like it so much that I want to buy the 5.5 inch version also!
