Cold Steel Introduces Recon 1 Series Tactical Folders

U.S.A.-( Cold Steel, manufacturer and innovator of purpose-built knives and blade tools for everyday carry, tactical, hunting and outdoor applications is excited to announce the new Recon Series tactical folding knives. Built to satisfy the real-world requirements of military, LE, and first-responder personnel, the new Recon 1 lockbacks are made for quick deployment on the toughest jobs.

Four blade profiles make up the Recon 1 Series. These include a conventional clip point, spear point, and two tanto points—one with a standard edge and one with a partially serrated edge for sawing applications, such as through harness webbing and seat belts. All blades are constructed of rugged, American S35VN steel and come with a subdued black DLC coating for maximum corrosion resistance.

Because retention and blade control figure prominently in a tactical folder, all Recon 1 knives come with tough G-10 handles featuring deep finger grooving and a palm swell that helps the hand lock tight around the handle for optimal grip. Cold Steel’s strong and reliable Tri-Ad® locking system is incorporated into the Recon 1 Series knives to provide safe operation for high-pressure cutting applications. Additional features include thumb studs plus an ambidextrous pocket/belt clip and lanyard hole to facilitate multiple carry and rig securing options.

Made for quick deployment how? I have not bought a folding knife that is not automatic or at least strongly assisted opening in years, and probsbly never will again.
