Yeah, they have another similar to that with 2 blades as well. That's a tough call as 3V is my fav steel because of its toughness. I had a Bark River in it and beat the thing for a couple of years before accidentally walling it up in a stage set in Vegas. It's still there to my knowledge, so someone will get a nice surprise when they strike it.
Good stuff, nice to see another chippy here. What's that tanto on the bottom?I have been a union carpenter for over 20 years and Cold Steel makes some of the toughest work knives out there.
I also like to carry a Vic Trekker.
The extra tools like the saw and Phillips have helped me a lot.
That is an older Recon1 in aus-8 steel.Good stuff, nice to see another chippy here. What's that tanto on the bottom?
Same here. I'd rather have a steel that blunts in a day to razor sharp in under a minute than a steel that takes 3 or 4 days to blunt and half an hour to sharpen. I'll look into that knife, tanto seems like a decent choice.That is an older Recon1 in aus-8 steel.
Look out on the exchange and these will pop up in the 30-50 buck range.
The newer ones are S35VN which is excellent steel but for me I prefer aus-8 as I can get it back to shaving sharp using an old cutoff wheel.
There are lots of good choices out there for knives these days brother.
That Recon 1 in that condition......I'd "like" your photo 100x if I could.
That knife is missing a few teeth from the serrated part but it really has been a most excellent work knife.That Recon 1 in that condition......I'd "like" your photo 100x if I could.
