Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and our Recon1® tactical folders are setting a standard that’s hard to beat. Why? Becausethey are as tough as nails and will cut like a chain saw! Every facet oftheir construction has been over engineered to make them as strong, durableand effective as humanly possible. The blades are made out of importedJapanese AUS 8A stainless steel that’s been vacuum heat treated and sub-zeroquenched and the handles feature G-10 laminate scales artfully contoured andscalloped for a terrific non slip grip. Plus, they are held together by thelatest in high strength mechanical fasteners and further anchored by a 6061heat-treated spacer. To complement their super tough blades and handles theyare equipped with our revolutionary Tri Ad lock® (see page 4), whichpractically precludes lock failure.
To complement their tactical mission we have given each blade a tough,black, Teflon® finish. Our testing has shown this coating offers three majoradvantages for tactical blades. First, it helps the blade to resist rust.Second, it eliminates glare and light reflections, which may give its useraway. And third, it’s a superior lubricant, which causes the blade to slipthrough even tough material with markedly less friction. This means you cancut deeper and far longer than with a non-Teflon® coated blade. To make theRecon 1® as easy to open and carry as possible we have equipped each knifewith a thumb disc and small extra strong pocket clip. This clip iscompletely ambidextrous so lefties please take note. What’s more its smallsize doesn’t abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.
