WeCome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we highlight the best discounts and deals on tactical gear, outdoor gear and everything in between.
As any fan of Task & Purpose’s gear cover has probably figured out by now, we’re big fans of Cold Steel’s growing family of well-designed knives. Specifically designed for military and law enforcement applications, we recommended Cold Steel products, from the solidly constructed folding knives like the American Lawman to the classic forged push knife from Section celebrity. And at the end of the day, there’s nothing that commands more attention than a bargain on a solid Cold Steel blade.
To wit: You can now pick up a Cold Steel Recon 1 Tactical Folding Knife for almost $100 off at Amazon right now, a great deal no matter how you cut it. Featuring a semi-serrated tanto blade forged from CPM-S35VN steel and set to G10 scales, the Recon 1 has become one of the company’s most popular blades thanks to its significantly reduced weight, razor-sharp blade and remarkable durability. With the inclusion of Andrew Demko’s famous TriAd locking mechanism, Cold Steel claims the Recon 1 is “unmatched” in impact resistance and strength.
That’s all well and good, but here’s the most important thing: the Cold Steel Recon 1 Folding Knife is currently available for just $79.99 on Amazon, which is 55% off its list price of $176.99. If that’s not a great deal, I don’t know what is.
