Description
CS27TMT: Mini Recon 1 Tanto, Plain Edge
Cold Steel
 
Recon 1® Series

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!

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 our revolutionary Tri-Ad lock™ , which practically precludes lock failure.

To complement their tactical mission we have given 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. To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we 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.

Great knife!
Again, excellent knife! Perfect size with reversible pocket clip which is great for us lefty's. Fits discretely in pocket. Super reliable locking mechanism. Came sharp enough to shave the hair off of the back of my hand.

Cons: Handle Feel, None
Another good working knife from Cold Steel
I find tanto style knives very useful for opening packages and any precision cutting. All the advantages of a razor blade but with a big cutting blade too. The straightness of the 'belly' doesn't seen to be a problem when cutting moderately tough items (eg. large ropes, etc). I don't particularly love the feel of the g-10 handles (a bit rough feeling), but they are very secure in the hand. The back lock is more convenient than a liner lock for one-handed work. So, a good looking, very functional precision work knife.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Just like the 4 inch, but a little smaller.
I already have the 4 inch as an EDC and got this one as an extra. For most folks, I think this is a better choice as the size is about perfect. As in all folders, a little fine tuning and practice in opening it is a good idea. Be care if you adjust the pocket clip. Bend it too far out and it is difficult to tighten back up.
