CS27TLCH: Recon 1 Clip Point 50/50 Edge
Cold Steel

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 (see page 4), 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!

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Excellent EDC Knife
Was looking for a replacement of a lost Emerson knife, and having seen how much their price had risen from 5 years ago, decided to look around for something more affordable, but with a solid reputation. I found it with the Recon 1. Great grip, although some think the texture is too aggressive, I find it provides a reliable grip. The lock up is as some suggest, like a bank vault. Blade, hair popping sharp. Comes with an additional pocket clip if you wish to reverse position. The only faults I find are minor. I feel the pocket clip is too short, would prefer one twice a long. Secondly, I think it should be made to carry it tip down if you prefer. Small gripe, but not a deal killer. In all, a great EDC knife, a workhorse built like a Clydesdale.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Amazing
This knife just came in today and its amazing. I ordered this one because it was on sale and the plain edge clip point was 30$ more so I removed the serrations using my edge pro apex which was surprisingly easy and converted it into a chisel edge. For 54$ shipped I couldnt ask more g10 handles feel amazing and I would definetly trust this with my life if it came to that.
