CS13RTKJ1: 13RTKJ1 Recon Tanto
Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Recon Tanto was designed for today's modern warriors. A much loved and appreciated knife by the Military and Law Enforcement Special Units, it was developed to withstand the harshest abuse and the toughest possible conditions. The signature Cold Steel Tanto point is specially reinforced to stay sharp even when encountering modern body armor - tested right here in our HQ by punching through 55 gallon steel drums!

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
This is a replacement for the exact same knife. (I left my first one in a car that I sold!) So good I bought it twice. I got this one on sale, but I would have gladly paid full price to own one again. Extremely sharp and tough. It's a user for sure. Secure sheath, great grip, perfect size. When you'd buy it again, that's saying something. The only knock I can give it is the blade coating. It gets rubbed off in spots from removing the knife from the sheath. I won't deduct a star for that. I use this knife. It's not a display piece. Arrived in 2 business days.
