Cold Steel Recon ODG/ Blk CS-49LRT-ODBK

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.

Cold Steel Recon Tanto blade ODG/ Blk CS-49LRT-ODBK

Such a great knife - a handy size and will easily fit into a backpack, the kydex sheath is good quality and the handle and blade are the quality one expects from 'Cold Steel' - robust and sharp and ready to do any task thrown at it. Especially like the comfortable handle with the very secure grip material.


a true Cold Steel product everything is solid and amazing, it was shaving sharp out of the box and everything was just as good as expected love this product and as always the service from the Knife guy is tops happy client all around I cant believe this knife is so cheap for what you get its a beast
