Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and their Recon 1 tactical folders are sure to set a higher standard that will be hard to beat. They are 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 blade is made out of 440A Sub Zero Quenched stainless steel and the handles are thick Zytel, massively reinforced by heat-treated steel liners and five locking bolts. To compliment their super tough blades and handles it features a revolutionary Ultra Lock, which practically precludes lock failure.
Each blade has a tough black Teflon finish which offers three major advantages for use on tactical blades. The first is it is highly resistant to scratches and abrasions while keeping rust at bay. The second is it eliminates glare and light reflections which may give its user away. The third is 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.
Each Recon 1 is equipped with a small, extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous so lefties take note. That's more its diminutive size doesn't abrade and irritate the palm under protracted use like a larger clip would. No Sheath
