Guardian Tactical RECON-035 D/A OTF Automatic Knife Blue (3.3" SW) 94511

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 finished blade and a black anodized handle.

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

Best otf I've used
Jeremy J. on Aug 26, 2023

I have a few otfs and have used several others and this is the best one I've used. It's very comfortable in hand and a great edc tool. The action is very smooth and the switch is easy to operate and access. I've opened and closed this knife hundreds of time by now and have only failed it once. This has become the only otf that I recommend and I edc this knife with confidence.

No glass breaker is a plus
Derek W. on Nov 5, 2019

I love this knife. I had a Microtech UTX 85 before but hated the glass breaker. The lack of that is what sold me on the Recon and once I got it I found even more pros. The knife just feels better in hand IMO as well.
