Cold Steel Recon C49LRT

Sale priceR 1,249.00


The Cold Steel Recon Tanto was designed for today's modern warriors. A much loved and appreciated knife by the Military and Law Enforcement Special Units, it was developed to withstand the harshest abuse and the toughest possible conditions. The signature Cold Steel Tanto point is specially reinforced to stay sharp even when encountering modern body armor - tested right in their HQ by punching through 55-gallon steel drums!

This classic design is now available with SK-5 high carbon steel. It is the Japanese equivalent of American 1080, a high carbon steel with carbon between 0.75%-0.85% and 0.60%-0.90% manganese. As quenched, it has a hardness near Rc 65 and produces a mixture of carbon rich martensite with some small undissolved carbides. The excess carbide increases abrasion resistance and allows the steel to achieve an ideal balance of very good blade toughness with superior edge holding ability.

Another superb knife from Cold Steel

A great knife at a great price, thanks Knife Guy! You wont't get a better price in SA anywhere else. The Knife Guy delivers every time.

Best you can get

For the money I just do not think you can buy a better general purpose and self defense knife. It is big and yet elegant at the same time. I am very pleased with mine.
