Description

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 lockô , 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.

I'm really happy I bought this knife. I had my eyes on the Recon 1 and thought I'd test the waters with the Micro. This was also my first chance to try the American Tanto style of blade. Wow what a fantastic little knife. I work in technical service and use it pretty hard every day. I carry it in the little pocket of my pants and can have it out and ready to go in a second. The tri-ad lock is really a necessity on a wicked little knife like this, you want the solid lockup it provides. It is ergonomically excellent, I don't feel it on me even when I'm crawling around on the floor and in tight spaces. The Tanto shape is perfect for a work knife, I'm pretty much sold on this blade shape now. The small size is nice in tight spaces and conceals well (doesn't freak out customers). I don't need to carry a big bulky and way less capable utility knife now. I'm still blown away at how useful this knife turned out to be. I wasn't expecting to like a 2" folder this much. Well done Cold Steel! I can't wait to get the full size version. For a little under $30 to the door, it's a steal.
Great Little Knife

Perfectly little knife to throw in your pocket that won't scare anyone around you when you pull it out to use. Handle fits your hand really well and is texture nicely so it won't go anywhere. The lockup is solid and the blade came well ground and very sharp.
