The Micro Recon series from Cold Steel shares most of the same features as its bigger siblings. The differences are the use of super lightweight, strong Faux G-10 handle slabs and a small key ring for attachment to keychain, packs, etc.

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 faux G-10 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 Cold Steel has given each blade a tough, black, Tuff-Ex finish. 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.

This is my “where the hell is my knife” back up knife. Super small/slim but still packing a Tri-Ad lock. It is always in my Maxpedition Mini Pocket Organizer that I carry at work. It’s also the first knife I managed to get my girlfriend to carry. Its size wasn’t as intimidating to her as some other knives I showed her.
