Recently, Cold Steel has announced they will be adding a new series of folding knives to their extensive EDC collection of knives. The new series of knives are the Recon 1 Series of tactical folding knives. The new Recon 1 knives will feature 4 different blade types, made of S35V steel, and come with a DLC black coating.

Cold Steel designed the Recon 1 to meet the needs of military, law enforcement, and first responders. The Recon 1 features both unserrated and partially serrated tanto point blade along with spear and clip point. All knives are made out of American 35VN steel with a DLC coating meant for corrosion resistance. Each knife will feature a tough G-10 handle with deep finger grooves and a healthy palm swell to allow for optimal grip. The Recon 1 series will also feature Cold Steel’s Tri-Ad locking system. This system allows for blade to hold firm during intense pressure cutting scenarios.
