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 excellent CPM-3V tool steel. The wear and toughness properties of CPM-3V make it an excellent alternative to shock-resistant steels such as S7 or A9, where they typically wear out too quickly, but where grades such as A2, CruWear, or CPM M4 tend to fail by breaking or chipping. CPM-3V offers the highest impact toughness of any tool steel with this range of wear resistance.
