Over the last 34 years, Cold Steel has succeeded in establishing the tanto as a superior blade for combative application. Our pioneering research, development and refinement of this blade shape has proven the value of the “American Tanto” style beyond question. Our Recon Tanto continues to redefine the standard for combat knives around the globe. Having seen active military application in numerous conflicts over the last 20 years, it is well on its way to becoming the preferred fixed blade for special military units and even SWAT teams on our own soil. Experience the extraordinary quality - test the distinctive razor sharp edge for yourself and you will see why the Recon Tanto is a knife you can’t afford to be without!
