Product Description

RECON 1® SERIES Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and our Recon 1® tactical folders are setting a standard that's hard to beat. Why? Because they are as tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw! Every facet of their construction has been over engineered to make them as strong, durable and effective as humanly possible.


The blades are made out of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched and the handles feature G-10 laminate scales artfully contoured and scalloped for a terrific non slip grip. Plus, they are held together by the latest in high strength mechanical fasteners and further anchored by a 6061 heat-treated spacer. To compliment their super tough blades and handles they are equipped with our revolutionary Tri Ad lock® (see page 4), which practically precludes lock failure.


To compliment their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough, black, Teflon® finish. Our testing has shown this coating offers three major advantages for tactical blades. First, it helps the blade to resist rust. Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections, which may give its user away. And third, it's a superior lubricant, which causes the blade to slip through even tough material with markedly less friction. This means you can cut deeper and far longer than with a non-Teflon® coated blade.


To make the Recon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knife with a thumb disc and small extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties please take note. What's more its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use. Thin, light, sharp and incredibly tough, the Recon 1® is willing and able to aid you on your next mission!


 


Cold Steel Recon Knife


 


Counterfeit Recon I FAKE VS REAL RECON I


The most telling thing here is that the fake knife has a blade with a bead blast finish. Since thier introduction in 2001, the Recon 1’s have always been sold with a black blade. We have never made a version with a bead blast finish. The person who made this knife figured that most people would not know that fact and buy this piece of junk thinking it was authentic. Generally, the look of this fake knife resembles an genuine Recon 1 pretty closely.


There is a subtle difference in the handles because the fake was cast from a real Recon 1 and is one generation away from the original, but nevertheless it is visually close to an actual Recon 1. If you had this fake knife in your hand you would notice that the blade wobbles, and that it does not open smoothly. This knife was returned to Cold Steel because the thumb disc on the top of the blade broke off. It was regrettable that we had to tell the owner that this was a knock off and was therefore not covered by our warranty.
