A popular knife with Military and Law Enforcement Personnel, Fire and Rescue crews and civilians, Cold Steel's Recon 1 Series continues to set the standard for tactical folding knives. These dependable knives have a hard-earned reputation for reliability and strength. The Recon 1 Series is available in various sizes and every facet of their construction has been engineered to make them as durable and effective as possible. Every model in this diverse series features Cold Steel's world-renowned Tri-Ad® lock, keeping your precious fingers safe from harm when using your knife in even the most taxing conditions. From the sturdy little workhorse that is the Micro Recon 1 to the beastly cutting power of the XL Recon 1 and all the knives in between - whatever your mission, the Recon 1 is there for you!

2015 Model - Now with U.S. made Carpenter CTS® XHP alloy blade steel featuring DLC-coating:
All of the Recon 1 knives have now CTS® XHP blades and G-10 handles (except for the Micro Recon 1's, which have an AUS 8A Tuff-Ex™-coated blade and a G10-styled Griv-Ex™ handle).

The G-10 handles are artfully contoured and scalloped for a terrific non-slip grip, and to make the Recon 1 as easy to open and carry as possible, each knife is also equipped with a thumb disc and a small, extra-strong pocket clip. Lefties may take note that the clip is completely ambidextrous. What's more, its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.

Carpenter CTS® XHP Alloy Steel
Carpenter American CTS® XHP is a high carbon, high chromium powdered alloy steel with very impressive edge holding abilities. With an extra fine, uniform grain structure, it outperforms its ingot-steel equivalents by a large margin. This high-performance steel has been used in everything from superior custom kitchen cutlery to surgical tools. It can also be polished to a beautiful satin finish, making it an excellent choice for high-end every day carry knives, especially those that require a very fine cutting edge.
