The Cold Steel Recon 1 has been built to meet the needs of first-responders and military personnel. The Recon 1 features both a partially serrated and unserrated tanto point blade, as well as a spear and clip point blade. As stated above, each blade is made from American 35VN steel with a DLC for corrosion resistance. My experiences with DLC have shown that it holds up incredibly well across a broad spectrum of applications which include knives. Each Recon 1 knife will feature a tough G-10 handle with deep finger grooving and a generous palm swell to help lock the blade into your hand and provide an optimal grip.
The Recon 1 series will also feature Cold Steel’s reliable and trusted Tri-Ad locking system which will hold the blade firm during high-pressure cutting applications. Some additional features include an ambidextrous pocket and belt clip, a lanyard hole as well as blade-mounted thumb studs for assisting in one-handed operation. The Recon 1 Is available for 176.99 regardless of blade selection and is available now from the Cold Steel website.
