Have you ever considered how much time you spent looking for a sharp object to cut small things? No matter where you go or what is your daily job description, having a sharp object around you will always save you from embarrassing situations or help you get the job done easier. You cannot walk around wearing a 7-inch machete without looking suspicious. Not even large bladed knives are a good invention if you do not want to hurt someone or raise some brows on the street. Thus, the only option you are left with is a nice pocket or keychain knife.
Unfortunately, most miniature blades are as sharp as tweezers and it will take you between sometimes and never to cut something with them. Suppose, you are at a friend’s house over dinner and you want to help them out but find out the only available knife is the one they are handling. You can easily fold your pocket knife and, with a switch of a wrist, exercise your culinary stunts. Chopping, cutting, peeling and even wood carving – these are the things that I expect my pocket knife to be able to perform smoothly. And, after years of research and investing large amounts of money into replacers and blunt knives, I have finally found the one that I like. The Cold Steel Mini Recon 1 Spear Point Tactical Folder Knife might be small but will do the trick just fine.
Features of Cold Steel Mini Recon
Incredibly sharp blade
As previously mentioned, I like my knives sharp but you cannot seem to ask for the same quality from a small, pocket knife. Or can you? The new Cold Steel Mini Recon 1 Spear Point Tactical Folder Knife perfectly falls into this category, as it is as sharp as you can buy on the market. The item features an a2 inch blade and a blade thickness of 2.5 mm. The handle length is around 2 and a half inches, making the entire product to stand up at as little as 4.5 inches. What I like the most about this product is the super qualitative blade made out of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and featuring black tuff-ex coating. Every facet of this knife was made as tough as possible, to ensure maximum efficiency, durability, and strength. The stainless steel blade was vacuum heated and then quenched at sub-zero degrees. Practically, this foldable knife will be everything you require in your outdoor and indoor adventures.
Apart from the super-sharp blade, what I also liked about this particular knife is also the handle. It features G-10 laminated scales precisely contoured and scallops for a maximum nonslip grip. You can use this knife under all-weather circumstances, including in hot sun, extreme humidity, dryness, or rain. And, because of its black coating, you will make sure the blade doesn’t shine or reflect the light more than necessary, thus becoming the perfect hunting knife. Last, but not least, the price is extremely affordable too.

Cold Steel Mini Recon 1 Customer Reviews and Scores
Just like me, most customers praised the durability, strength, and sharpness of the blade. Even though small, the Recon 1 knife has the same attributes as its larger-scale counterparts. However, even though the knife comes with a small key chain, customers suggested you should not place this knife at your keychain because there is still a risk of hazard.
All in all this little foldable knife makes for the perfect pocket knife that you can easily carry around all day without even noticing its presence. You can perform a handful of soft and heavy duties with it so don’t let its small dimensions fool you!
