Cold Steel Recon Scout

Cold Steel Recon Scout



In almost every respect, the Recon Scout is simply a 7 1/2 inch Trail Master Bowie. It offers the same blade thickness, blade shape, and handle.

Unlike other knives, the Recon Scout’s broad clip point is highly resistant to bending or breaking. It’s ideal for long range cutting. Additionally, the blade is equipped with a slightly concave false edge that measures approximately 3 1/2" long.

Like the Trail Master, the Recon Scout has a slight curve along the entire length of the blade. This curve allows the blade to be used in a draw cut as well as a chopping stroke. Plus, the extra curve near the tip provides plenty of “belly” for emergency field dressing and skinning.

The Recon Scout comes complete with a tough Secure-Ex sheath.

Ive had the recon scout for a couple of years now and for a large knife its very useable. superb edge retention and heavy enough to cut easily. good for skinning big game but not the easiest for small fine work. the sheath is very well designed and the knife always stays in place. (Posted on )

BEAUTIFUL BLADE,not had chance to put to proper use yet but can't wait. Came amazingly sharp for a big thick blade,grind was perfect,coating even and well greased.There is a good heft to this knife,and with the steel [01] and the sharpness equals some serious heavy duty work. Sits nice in the sheath with a good click plus the retention clip ,it aint going no where.I am very pleased with this knife,although i do think another inch maybe in blade length would have been perfect imo , i received the leatherneck at the same time and there isn't that much between them in size, good buy though.....

You know, I had one of these 15 years ago, let it go, and regretted it ever since. So I got another one. The Recon Scout is beautifully made in Taiwan. Blade inc. ricasso just over 7.5" long. Handle inc. guard just under 5.25" long. Stock, a mere 8mm. Balance point, at the ricasso. All specs. approx. The fit and finish of this model is just perfect. The bevel on the FFG blade is perfectly ground, and perfectly polished. The Secure-Ex scabbard offers a snug click-fit. It has a good snap, a detachable QD belt loop and no drain port. This is a classic HD fixed blade from Cold Steel, and I hope they make it for many years to come. (Posted on )

Fantastic blade, well proportioned for chopping and also finer work, if you fit a longer lanyard you can use it for fine work.
This knife lends it self to CQB work as well, due to its proportions and blade grind.

Gran bel coltello, da usare, maltrattare, riaffilare e ricominciare.
(C'ä di meglio ma c'ä anche di molto peggio.
Really good knife to use, abuse, reground and start over. Better but there is also much worse).

Yes there are a few budget touches to this knife but it is a work-horse! Used to split logs and chop firewood with no problems. If you want proof of the ability of this knife do a take a look on You Tube at the videos. Capabilites of knives twice the price. (Posted on )

Have not field tested yet, but it is a big, strong, capable Bowie. I anticipate it will perform as well as my other "Cold Steel" knives. A particularly good fit in the scabbard. Does have a few "made in China" touches, lathe soap still on the blade, slight irregularities in the black coating. (Posted on )
