Cold Steel has made a name for themselves by creating high performance knives like their Recon 1 tactical folding knife. This model adds to the already over-engineered Recon folder by outfitting it with a USA-made Carpenter CTS-XHP steel blade that offers superior edge sharpness, retention, and toughness. In addition, the blade has a durable black DLC finish. The Recon 1 utilizes Cold Steel's Tri-Ad Lock and strong, lightweight G-10 handles for unbelievable strength. Ambidextrous lock design, thumb stud openers, and a reversible pocket clip. This model features OD green G-10 handle scales and a tanto style blade.

I'm EXTREMELY picky and I can't find a single thing wrong with this knife. The blade grinding is flawless, action is smooth, and lockup is typical Tri-ad, engages with a satisfying CLACK and it's a fixed blade. The edge is razor sharp and blade is perfectly centered in the frame. Now if I can just bring myself to use this beauty.
Perfect EDC/Personal defense tool

This is one of the best knives I have purchased. The quality of the knife is unsurpassed for the price point. The blade finish is beautiful yet rugged. I carry this knife with me while I am duty or out with the family. Its my new "best friend." Don't hesitate if you are financially able, its worth the money.
Could not be more pleased

This is an amazing knife. I own about 25 high end knives that average about $170.00 each. I wish I'd bought this a long time ago that number would be less if I did. When you read reviews of this Recon with the CTS-XHP steel the common thread is how sharp the blade is when they received it. I can only echo that experience. It's hard to describe how the feel of this knife in hand instills such confidence in one's ability to defend yourself should the need arise. A lot of thought went into the design of this knife, the G10 handles are really no way, no how going to slip under any conditions.
The Triad lock is superior to competing designs (just check out all the youtube demolition derbies).

This is the cat's meow when it comes to an extraordinarily designed and executed EDC at a price that seems too good to be true, but isn't. This is the real deal.
