I admit to buying this knife for the copper alloyed plated blade. Not expecting much more than a novelty knife, I was surprised at how great this knife is. First the copper and green G10 look better in person than the photos show. The knife I received had perfect centering. The S35VN blade was ground even and opened smoothly with one hand. It also closes easily with one hand and doesn’t feel heavy in the pocket. The Medium G10 texture gives good purchase and feels good in the hand without tearing up my pocket. This one is a winner. Big thanks to Cold Steel and Blade HQ for bringing this knife to the fan base.
So much 'Merica

Even though this knife is made in Taiwan, I have never handled a knife that felt so 'merica (if you know what I mean). This thing is freaking awesome. My first cold steel and I couldn't be happier. The action is incredibly smooth and lock up is very solid. Ergonomics are on point with a very comfortable g10 handle and the back lock (tri-ad lock) is surprisingly pleasant to use. The clip point desert warrior just looks so cool and I can't wait to use and abuse this knife like it's intended.
Great Folder

Great grip, the finger grooves fit me very well, but I could see where they could be an issue if you have slender or fairly stout fingers. The lock up is very strong and secure. I appreciate the extra pocket clip so you can carry the blade however you prefer.
My one word of caution is that you need to make sure that you really flick the blade open. The lockup being so tough has some resistance to overcome, and I once didn't flick hard enough and the blade came back down to bit the tip of my finger. Proper finger placement and technique would have prevented this, so definitely my failing, not the blade's.
Good Knife

I got this knife as a do everything sort of folder. The ergonomics feel really good and the knife as a whole feels solid. The green color of the handle is as you seen in the pictures. The copperish coating is cool but has this texture that doesn't allow it to be wiped easily. A light touch of a finger will leave a fingerprint that is hard to wipe off. The coating will show every smudge you make. Since it's a good stainless I wish the knife would just come in a bare steel blade. The pocket clip like I've read with other Recons is way too tight and will likely rub a hole in your pocket quick so maybe I'll have to do some modification. The knife doesn't have steel liners but I don't see it as an issue, everything feels robust. I'm happy with the purchase. Just come out with a satin blade and green handle and I'll get that too.
