Loving this knife!
Joseph L.
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.
