I got this one for about 92 bucks on Amazon, and its worth every penny and then some. The price on this site is good as well, anytime you can get a premium steel for under 100 bucks its a score!! I really like the way this knife holds a blade very sharp and easy to keep that way, one secret to knives staying sharp. Don't let them get dull! Keep up on them with just stropping and you will always be ready to go with your blades. I like this site as they do have a lot of great deals if you look for them.
Very Happy

I wanted a larger knife for EDC, and this one fits the bill! I am very happy with it and am glad I ordered it. It is not too big in the pocket and I love having the larger blade whenever I need it. I recommend it.

Once opened the grip is perfect in my hand, wanting to get some work done.
The weight is perfect light for the size of blade.
The lock is perfection. A foldable fixed blade. It does have its limits but it will get the job done.
Tactical, Working, or just EDC.
This is a big folder you need.

I bought this knife for my oldest son as a Christmas present. It is hefty and comfortable in the hand. The sandpaper feeling is a bit odd at first, but I rather like it. I let my younger son check it out and he's pretty finicky. He wants one too! It's a bit larger than I usually buy, but I really like it.

Cold Steel Recon 1, is the first Cold Steel product I have owned that I haven't been disappointed in. While I think it would be an understatement to say that I have had bad luck with cold steel in the past, the Recon 1 feels like the complete package. Stiff Tri-ad lock, large menacing size, nice murder-y color, fantastic ergonomics, and tried and true. Is it worth $100? I would be tempted to say maybe, yeah. It is well made and tough, plus it feels just great regardless of how you hold it. I will say that the action comes pretty stiff and the clip is laughably short and stiff. But it is a great knife, sure to meet all my big game needs. 87/100
Love it

This is a solid and beefy knife. The triad lock is awesome, and not nearly as stiff and hard to operate as a lot of people say. The G10 is very rough but thatís actually a feature that I like about the knife. Very grippy with wet hands. S35vn steel...a great purchase!
Solid knife minor issues for me.

Pros(for me): Good blade shape and size, handle fits me like a glove, normal reversible clip and thumb stud stuff, pseudo choil to choke up on, beefy triad lock. Good price for materials.

Cons: G10 texture is sand paper like I can literally file my nails or buff off skin with these handles. clip doesn't cooperate getting in and out of the pocket between the low ramp and the serious texture. Black on black on black murder-y coloration just isn't my thing.

Fixes. Just spent like 1 minute outside with a sanding block and buffed down the G10 to a light/moderate texture definitely still bumpy but no longer sand paper-y(I know for some people this is treason). While I did that I took off the clip to get that area sanded and also took some pliers propped it against the edge of my desk and curled the ramp up a tiny bit on the knife so that it still clips into my pocket but it goes in easy and doesn't fight me too much pulling it out.
Loving this knife!

I was in the market for a large heavy-duty pocket knife. As a middle-aged knife enthusiast I am a bit nostalgic when it comes to pocket knives and I prefer a traditional lockback locking mechanism over the newer flipper types available. After both reading and watching countless online reviews of larger size pocket knives I settled on this Cold Steel Recon-1 because so many people like it. It is a stout bull of a folding knife and is very rigid and sturdy. The handle scales are ultra grippy and ergonomically it feels great in my large sized hand. The blade came pretty sharp right out of the box and is perfectly centered and evenly ground. The Tri-ad lock is very secure and there is zero blade play up and down or side to side. This is truly a working man's knife and seems as though it will be able to take on anything that I will throw at it. I am super excited and highly impressed with this purchase. For just over $100.00 with the shipping method that I chose I feel like it was a great deal. Thank you Blade HQ for your part in selling and shipping me this stellar knife. I could not be any happier with it.
