Guardian Tactical RECON-035 D/A OTF Automatic Knife CF Inlay (3.3" Two-Tone)

Add a state of the art OTF automatic to your rotation with the RECON-035 from Guardian Tactical. This RECON model is built with a black anodized handle with carbon fiber inlays and a two-tone blade with black finished grinds and satin flats.

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.

If you're looking at Guardian Tactical, don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed. The 035 is the perfect size for EDC. The 040 is next on my list.

Fantastic knife!

I never had an OTF knife before last December 2019 when I bought a Hogue Compound. I unboxed it, tried the action a few times. Hated the "SPROING" feeling when it deployed. And it felt cheap. I returned it promptly and gave up on OTF knifes. Then I did some research and found the RECON 035. Did some more research, and finally pulled the trigger and ordered one. The difference in quality between the two is noticeable. The RECON 035 deploys with authority and locks up solid with no toy-like "sproing". It has an Elmax blade in black and stainless and CF inlays. I have to restrain myself from actuating it unnecessarily. Its just that satisfying to use. Absolutely love it.
