The blades are made out of imported Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel that's been vacuum heat treated and sub-zero quenched and the handles feature G-10 laminate scales artfully contoured and scalloped for a secure non slip grip. All Recon 1's have a Tri-Ad lock , which practically precludes lock failure. To complement their tactical application each blade has a tough, black, Tuff-Ex finish which helps the blade to resist rust aswell as it eliminates glare and light reflections. It also acts as a superior lubrican't, which causes the blade to slip through even tough material with markedly less friction. This means you can cut deeper and far longer than with a non-Tuff-Ex coated blade. To facilitate ease of opening and carrying each knife is equipped with a thumb stud and a small, extra strong pocket clip. This clip is completely ambidextrous.
All folding knives and multitools should never be left wet or dirty after having being used,
and should be cleaned, oiled and dried before storing. The finest product on the market to
keep your prized cutting companion in excellent working condition, is the Quick Release Lubricant.
Supplied with a unique needle point dispenser to apply a few drops to all moving parts, which emulsifies dirt
and corrosion resulting in smooth friction free movement of all working implements.
