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!

Review of Cold Steel 12RTKJ1 Recon Tanto
Presently I use this Tanto Knife for show. It will be field tested. Can't say I am disappointed, most Cold Steel products are of excellent quality and are everything they promote. I have many of their top line knives. The light weight, strength, and overall look are great!! I will be buying the higher level Cold Steel GV1 MIII blade. It has been tested by punching holes through steel drums.

Pros: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Materials
Cons: None
Another great VG-1 Made in Japan knife from Cold Steel. If you like their Pendleton Hunter, you'll like this one. I'm a lefty, so the reversible sheath on both of these knives is an important feature.
