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.

Great sturdy full tang knife, stays sharp, great sheath, I have two, one on my battle belt, and one in my bag, and you can%u2019t beat that price for this knife.

Been holding off on this model for years. Mainly because I don't like the handle of the Trailmaster at all. This looked almost identical. But once it was in hand I was pleasantly surprised. The handle legitimately works here. SK-5 is a basic spring steel but it does have a decent amount more carbon than 5160 or 1060 so it's a nice change of pace if you're on a spring steel kick. This is one of those knives that is a bit smaller than you expect. So if you thought was too big for you, you might want to reconsider. Came properly sharpened, coating is even and protected with oil. Great deal, you'll like it.
