Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto

Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto

From: £129.95


Cold Steel is famous for raising the bar in the knife industry and their 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 S35VN w/ DLC Coating 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 Cold Steels revolutionary Tri Ad lock®, which practically precludes lock failure.

Cold Steels 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 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, Cold Steel have equipped each knife with a thumb disc and small extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous. What's more its small size doesn't abrade or irritate the palm under protracted use.

  1. Love it!!!Review by
    Great, strong knife. Clip is easy to modify and it’s necessary to save your trousers (Posted on )
  2. Excellent.Review by
    I own a fallkniven NL5 Idun Damascus, the Recon 1 is my preferred choice for hunting ALL day long. It retains an edge like no other. Cuts through bone. Razor sharp , Robustly built and safe to handle. Awesome value for money. Just ordered another for a back up. I would hate to be without it.
    Heinnie service is second to none. Great combo.

  3. Recon 1 Tanto Review by
    Out of the 17 reviews below, 15 are 5 star. That's not bad at all, is it. There are plenty of reviews on Youtube as well. I don't think anyone, anywhere, has a bad thing to say about Cold Steel's Recon 1. It is a great working folder. Just to give you an idea of the size, it is 5.25" closed. The super-grippy handle is quite slim. Also, it is quite light, with a weight of 149g. Now a lot of folks moan about the cryogenic AUS 8 steel, it is not as bad as some make out. A lot of users like AUS 8, including me. It takes a good edge, and is easy to sharpen. I came across a steel the other day, I can't remember the name at the moment, and it had a Rockwell of 64 ! I should not like to have to sharpen that ! (Posted on )
  4. Monstrous knifeReview by
    The first thing to comment about here is the handle. It's big, very grippy and contoured to suit normal grip, reverse and underhand grips. The deep choil means your hand will never slip onto the blade.

    The action is rock solid, and the back lock very secure. Out of the box, it was so secure I couldn't manage to get the knife closed again! It took some oil and a bit of working to get it to the point where I could open it one handed and close it without too much effort.

    The knife is a nice weight and the blade is sturdy. The point is needle sharp, the front of the blade like a razor and the serrations very very sharp. This is a knife that can stab, cut, slice and saw through just about anything.

    If you want a multi-function knife that's built to last, this is the one. Twice as expensive as the Boker Plus Kalashnikov 10 Spear Point (for example) but well worth it.

  5. Overall good knifeReview by
    I bought this knife from HH over a year ago and it's seen some light/moderate use. Comes razr sharp out of the box and keeps its edge well, also the strongest locking system on any folder ive used, plus if it gets loose you can just tighten the screw at the front of the handle and its back to how it came. Also like how you can switch the pocket clip over and it comes with a spare. My only complaint is the black coating easily scratches off the blade, like really easy you can do it with your fingernail. Also heard some bad things about cold steel's serrations, but i just got the plain edge model. As always the best service of any online shop ive ever bought from, and free delivery came in 2 days thanks HH (Posted on )
  6. This thing cut itself outa the damn box...Review by
    Cold steel, as usual, kickass build and feel ok, but Lynn my dear chap, use a more expensive steel... We don't mind paying for it ok... Your s**t rocks right outa the box, but with hardened use... Mmnnn... (Posted on )
  7. TankReview by
    Great knife built like a tank, very sharp out the box very happy with this purchase! (Posted on )
  8. A tanto only concerned with getting the job doneReview by
    I've just written a review for the Espada and how 'bling' it is; well, this is the flip side to that tough coin. There is absolutely no emphasis on aesthetics with this bad boy, it's a workhorse through and through. No mirror polished finish here, what we have is a black teflon coating which comes off easily and gives your Japanese AUS8 blade a no nonsense/all business look. There's no delicate pointy tip either - I've seen a Recon1 Tanto [not mine] go through a car bonnet and retain its point, this along with the TRI-AD lock, the thick unlined high traction G10 scales with deep choil, great ergonomics and deep carry ambidextrous pocket clip all add up to one hell of a tactical folding knife.

  9. Revisit!!!!Review by
    Awesome is how i call this knife!!!! This is a re-review having bought quite a few knives from H.H (THE BEST ONLINE SHOPPING BAR NONE) Spyderco, Boker, Schrade, Crkt and ka-bar to name a few - I have to say this knife is by far the best of the bunch! Buy one if you find anything to moan about please let me know! (Posted on )
  10. Very SatisfiedReview by
    My first Cold Steel knife left a lasting impression. Everything from how sharp it came out of the box, how grippy the scales were and the satisfying "click" of the Tri-Ad lock.

    This knife feels like you can depend on it.

  11. Scary KnifeReview by
    This is one scary folding knife. It's built like a tank and very very sharp. It locks into place with a very reassuring clunk. Take a look at the video's on Cold Steel's website to see how strong the lock is. If this knife isn't tough enough for you then I don't know what is. Good Recon 1 review by nutnfancy on YouTube and also in his AK-47 review giving this knife a proper beating. Takes it all in it's stride! The G10 handles are almost too grippy, it's like holding sandpaper. Pocket clip is way too tight against the rough G10 to even get it on my pocket but I'll bend it out a bit and sand the handle a bit underneath. It's quite a large knife and hard to open safely one handed - slip and it will close on your fingers but it might feel safer once it's loosened up a bit. Lock isn't hard to close as some have mentioned. Very happy and excellent service! (Posted on )
  12. Mr CReview by
    I bought the plain version as I am not too keen on the serrated type. Just a personal preference. I was very pleasantly surprised when it turned up the following day. First class service from Heinnie and will buy from them in the future. The knife is a joy as can be expected from cold steel products. You cannot fault at all. Sharp well designed. Very pleased with everything. Thank you. (Posted on )
  13. Holy Cow!!Review by
    I am a big fan of Tanto blades but this just blows everything else I have out of the water!

    Super, super sharp out of the box, perfect lock-up and so grippy it's like it's glued to your hand.

    It's a big knife so bare that in mind if you're ordering one, but believe me, if you are only slightly interested in this knife, order it! You will not be disappointed.

    Great knife from Cold Steel, not my last either, and as always, fantastic service from the Heinnie Haynes team!!

  14. Stunning!!Review by
    What a knife, very strongly built. Feels superb in the hand. The grips are really good, I would recommend a sheath to carry. This one gives you an 'air of confidence' that it won't let you down. I have the part-serrated version. Thanks HH superb service. (Posted on )
  15. awsome!Review by
    Just received my recon, on first impressions wow! Then more wows. Solid build, great feel in the hand. My first Cold steel knife but definately not my last. Also my first buy from Heinnie and again not my last, great service and delivery. (Posted on )
  16. What a Beast!Review by
    A bad knife for bad times with ultra grippy G10 handles, the locking mechanism is over engineered to perfection. This lightened later model answers the put downs of the first incarnation. The Recon came razor sharp with zero blade play and ready for anything. (Posted on )
  17. JohnReview by
    Order Wednesday afternoon, receive Thursday morning :o) Fantastic service as usual from Heinnie. Superb knife, sharp, solid, a treat to hold and use. Plus it is ú4 cheaper than from cold steel themselves. Highly recommended. If you want a great knife, brilliant service and unbeatable price, look no further. (Posted on )
  18. Owch!Review by
    When I first took the knife out of the box I wasn't sure if I was holding onto the knife or if the G10 was holding onto me!

    Sharpest factory sharpened knife I think I've ever felt and the Tri-Ad lock is as tough as a rock with no play, even after a beasting.

    My only criticism is the G10 under the pocket clip can sometimes make it a battle to un-clip, so i've now taken mine off.

  19. WOWReview by
    This is the best quality knife I have owned solid lock up and to release the back spring has to raise a good height to release the lock up defiantly not an EDC but a work horse when you need one razor sharp out of the box and even with difficulties in the post up North Heinie usual quick delivery fantastic (Posted on )
  20. Evil Steel.Review by
    WHAT A BLADE! I have been carrying a BLACKHAWK CQD MOD E for some time now and having this for duty use is fantastic, its extremely light, really thin, carries deep in the pocket, clip is strong and out the box is as sharp as you get. Only gripe, the G10 grips will shred your pocket after a while when using the clip. (Posted on )
