Recon Tanto San Mai

Experience the pinnacle of combat knives with the Cold Steel Recon Tanto San Mai, a blade that has redefined standards in the industry and earned its place as the preferred fixed blade for military units and SWAT teams worldwide. With a legacy spanning over 30 years, Cold Steel’s expertise in crafting the Tanto is unmatched, having pioneered and popularized this iconic knife style in the early 1980s. Now, the Recon Tanto offers an extraordinary level of quality and sharpness that sets it apart from any other blade on the market.

Key Features:

Distinctive Razor-Sharp Edge: The Recon Tanto boasts a razor-sharp edge, tested and proven in numerous military conflicts over the past two decades. Its cutting, slashing, and piercing power are unparalleled, making it a force to be reckoned with in any combat situation.
Premium Blade Finishes: The hollow ground blade bevels feature a deep lustrous satin finish, while the blade flats showcase a contrasting line grain finish. These state-of-the-art grinding techniques not only enhance performance but also lend the Recon Tanto its unique appearance.
Durable Kraton Handle: The Recon Tanto comes equipped with Cold Steel’s signature flattened oval Kraton handle. This ergonomic design provides a secure and comfortable grip, ensuring optimal control even under the most demanding conditions. Kraton’s weather-resistant properties make it a reliable handle material that withstands wear and tear.
Effective Solid Steel Pommel: Lynn Thompson, the designer behind the Tanto series, incorporated a tapered solid steel pommel that concentrates the force of a crushing blow in a small area. This feature enhances the knife’s ability to disarm or incapacitate an attacker effectively.
High-Quality Secure-Ex™ Sheath: Each Tanto in the San Mai series includes a thick, durable Secure-Ex™ sheath. This reliable sheath ensures your Recon Tanto remains protected and readily accessible, ready for action whenever needed.
