FYI....u-tube has a vid review of of the new Mini Recon 1 Clip Point. It may be the very first vid of the new 2021 model. Just type “mini recon 1 cold steel” in the search box.

I was hoping you’d have a review, ha. I like mine so far, and think they’re an outstanding value. Been carrying mine when I wear basketball shorts and a full size recon 1 is too heavy.

They’re not quite as high quality as the XHP versions were, more like a cross between a voyager and the older mini recon 1s due to the steel and lined grn handles. For the $52 I paid for mine, they’re a great value. I have the clip and spear points so far, just waiting for the tanto to release.

Edit: I also like that they’re uncoated.

Always play hard ball. Jk they were approved as soon as the offer hit so they had it set to accept that.

Yeah I made the same mistake on the AD15 Lite, which was the same seller. Percentage-wise I went lower on the Mini Recon, but apparently still not low enough. Live and learn...

Thanks for the tip :) i never tried this before, learned new things today. I tried $50, rejected, then $51 and was accepted.
Bought a spear point and a clip point :thumbsup:

Just a heads up: the mini recon 1 tantos are out now at various distributors. I just ordered one for $50.29 at an e-auction site.

Awesome! Much easier to remove! I was kinda wondering the way it came off in strips and the blade is in such good shape.
