Guardian Tactical's patented OTF mechanism provides smooth, responsive opening action. The unique thumb slide design is separated from the aluminum handle by a steel plate and 3 ceramic balls that eliminate grinding and wear. An innovative locking mechanism sits off to the side of the blade channel so it doesn't drag against the blade when opening and closing. These features eliminate the friction on the blade and button that have always plagued OTF knives. Take your OTF game to the next level with the Guardian Tactical RECON-035.

  • Anodized aluminum handle is compact and lightweight for durable everyday carry.
  • Innovative OTF mechanism offers fast and smooth opening action for responsive tactical deployment.
  • Item includes a stainless steel pocket clip for secure tip-down carry.

Customer Reviews

My first Guardian Tactical! Bad MoFo!
Brent M. on Jul 18, 2022

I have a large OTF collection, probably bordering on ridiculous prices on good automatic knives these days. When I first read about these I wanted to get one to try out right then, but I had some other knives that had been on my wishlist that I bought first. Let me just say that once I did order it, I picked through the wide selection on Blade HQ and picked out this offering. Man, the ball-bearing mechanism is a step above anything else I have ever tried. I love the Elmax steel, and I loved the knife overall so much that I immediately put the Recon Elite on my list as the next knife to buy. There are lots of badass knife makers out there from Microtech, Benchmade, Hogue, Heretic and the list goes on, but Guardian Tactical is a welcome addition to the category of premium automatic knives and I have felt good about my purchase since the day I received it. Thank you Guardian Tactical and thank you Blade HQ!!!!!!
