The iconic Cold Steel Recon 1 was designed for hard use and tactical situations, but its sturdy build, high performance, and reliability translate well for EDC use. At 5.3 ounces and 5.375" closed, it’s a heavy duty tool meant to take on big cutting tasks. The high-end CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade is tough and resistant to chipping and breaking, giving you an edge you can rely on no matter the situation. Cold Steel’s signature Tri-Ad Lock secures the 4" blade during use, and the black DLC finish helps it keep a low profile during emergencies. The G-10 handle scales feature texturing and finger grooves to provide a secure grip on this hefty knife. It ships with a pocket clip oriented for right-side carry installed, but comes with a different shaped one for left-side use. The Recon 1 continues to trend in our gear charts as a go-to knife for tough situations, and it has spawned variants like the Mini Recon 1 and the Recon 1 XL in addition to offering different blade shape options.

I love mine. It's my EDC 90% of the time unless I HAVE to carry something smaller. Otherwise, it's a beast and wonderful tool to have at all times. The Cold Steel promo videos are no joke, either. I've used this to cut everything from cheese, to apples, to boxes; I've even used it like a machete chopping 1/2 inch or so brush while hiking with EASE and no damage to the blade. At least non that was visible! Highly recommend. Stays sharp, too. The only downside is that it scares the bejesus out of folks who aren't used to seeing knives larger than an SAK in everyday life. LOL.
