Cold Steel Recon 1 Specifications: Blade Length: 4" Blade Thickness: 3.5 mm Overall Length: 9 3/8" Steel: Japanese Aus 8A Stainless w/ Black Tuff-Ex Finish Weight: 5.3 oz Handle: 5 3/8" Long G-10 Pocket Clip: Stainless Pocket / Belt Clip Today I am reviewing the Cold Steel full size Recon 1 spear-point knife. This is my first Cold Steel knife and after using it the last two weeks I must say I am impressed with their quality, durability and value. At over 9" inches overall length, this knife is big. I will just get that out of the way right away. It may not be the 'best' EDC knife but that's all personal opinion. I carried this knife every day for about two weeks without and problems.
