On this Mini Recon 1 you'll benefit from the black DLC coated CTS-XHP stainless steel tanto blade with its extreme blade edge sharpness and retention.

A popular knife with Military and Law Enforcement Personnel, Fire and Rescue crews as well as civilians who appreciate a hardworking, dependable tool for any occasion. Sharp as a scalpel and tough as a tank, the Cold Steel RECON Series is available with 2, 3, 4, and 5 1/2 inch blades, and every facet of their construction has been over engineered to make them as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible.

These Cold Steel classics are thin, light, razor sharp and amazingly strong! Every model in this diverse series features Cold Steel's world renowned Tri-Ad lock, making them almost impervious to shock and keeping your precious fingers safe from harm when using your knife in even the most taxing conditions.

*All of the Recon 1's have CTS® XHP blades and G-10 handles, except for the Micro Recon 1's, which have an AUS 8A Tuff-Ex™ Coated Blade, and a G-10 styled Griv-Ex™ handle.

Great hard use knife
Thomas K.
This was one of the first pocket knives I ever got and I love it. It’s extremly robust and it’s just G10 handle scales, washers, and the blade which makes it really easy to take apart and clean. The blade steel leave something to be desired as it doesn’t hold an edge for too long but it’s also estreno y easy to sharpen. Initially the lock will be pretty hard to open but once you break it in it should be fine. The pocket clip however will mess up your pockets, I recommend taking some sand paper to the handle scale where the pocket clip touch’s and sanding it down, overall great hard use knife
