Cold Steel has created several classic must have folding knives for everyday carry. They now offer the Recon, Code, and Frenzy series with high-end US made S35VN blade steel.
S35VN is an particle metal specifically designed by Chris Reeve and Crucible Steel. The steel in these knives holds an edge extremely well due to the evenly distributed carbides in the blade. S35VN and S30V are virtually identical except for the additional niobium to the steel makeup.
The Recon blades feature black DLC coating. The handles are grippy G10.
The locking system employed on these knives is Cold Steels Tri-Ad lock back design. All of these knifes are built to be very durable and dependable.
The Code features a satin silver finish on the blade with aluminum handles.
You can pick up these new knives at several shops. I first heard about these from Knife Center.
