The Recon-1 knife is a tactical folding knife. It was used as the Close-Range edged weapon of the Navy SEAL.
It utilizes a very strong lock which is released by the button on the side and has steel liners to prevent the blade from twisting out of the handle under stress.
It opens by means of a washer on the back of the blade which allows the operator to open the knife with one thumb. It has no springs or actuators built into the design and so is not classified as an automatic knife.
This knife is currently legal to carry in most states.
It is currently made by Cold Steel Knives in California.
