CS27TMC: Mini Recon 1 Clip Point, Plain Edge
Cold Steel
Recon 1® Series

Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and their 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!

Available with 3 and 4 in blades, 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 complement their super tough blades and handles they're equipped with Cold Steel's revolutionary Tri-Ad lock, which practically precludes lock failure.

To complement their tactical mission they have given each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex finish. Cold Steel's 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. To make the Recon 1 as easy to open and carry as possible they have equipped each knife with a thumb stud and a 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.

Best EDC I've found!
I love my Recon 1 Mini, it's the perfect size and weight for an EDC. Pros: Real G-10 handles - give exceptional grip and great ergonomics Aus8a blade steel - good edge retention and easy to sharpen Great locking system - very strong lock-up. I love Cold Steel's Tri-ad locks! Size and weight - 3 inch blade is perfect for every day use, and it fills your hand nicely Solid construction - practically drop proof Knife comes very sharp out of box Excellent overall quality for the money Cons: The pocket clip on top of the aggressive G-10 handle maybe too strong and tear your pocket. Solution: Gently sand the handle under the pocket clip with fine sand paper. Needful info: Because this knife is high carbon steel it is important that it be oiled regularly. Never put the knife away wet and try not to wet the inside of the knife if at all possible. The aggressive texture of the G-10 handles will wear down with use. It is not necessary to sand except under the clip. The black coating on the knife blade is a Teflon based coating and is very helpful in preventing rust, I would recommend leaving the coating on the blade, it will wear off with use.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Weight, None
Great Knife
Like the description says, scary sharp;and very solid. It is put together very well. Hard using the clip; you have to get used to closing. Would be nice to be a little lighter in the pocket. Price was great; I would buy Cold Steel again.

Great EDC knife
Perfect size and blade shape for EDC emergency tactical...Ergonomics are amazing.. G10 handle scales have great traction... Blade comes from factory extremely sharp so far I've bought 2 cold steel knives and they both came to me razor sharp.... Only downside to this knife in my opinion is the pocket clip comes way too tight.
