Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical equipment, outdoor gear, and everything in between.
As any semi-regular reader of Task & Purpose knows, we’re big fans of Cold Steel’s burgeoning ecosystem of finely-crafted knives, from solidly-built folders like the American Lawman to the classic Drop-Forged Push Knife of Platoon fame. And when it comes to sweet deals on high-quality blades, there’s nothing that makes us stand at attention more than a hefty discount on a solid Cold Steel product.
Case in point: one of the Cold Steel Recon 1 series knives is currently available at a significant discount on Amazon. Featuring a half-serrated tanto blade forged from CPM-S35VN steel and set in G10 scales, this iteration of the Recon 1 is a durable, versatile folding knife that’s become one of the company’s most popular blades among military and law enforcement personnel due to its light weight, razor-sharp blade, and remarkable strength.
Normally listed at $176.99, this version of the Recon 1 is currently more than half off on Amazon for a price of just $80.23. If that isn’t a sweet deal, I don’t know what is.
If you’re on the market for other Cold Steel knives beyond yet another folder to add to your collection, then you’re in luck: several other impressive Cold Steel blades are currently on sale for impressively low prices on Amazon. Among them is the Cold Steel Mini Tac Bowie knife, whose 3.625-inch 8Cr13MoV steel blade can be yours for just over $13 — savings of 46 percent on a normally $29.99 blade.
If you’re looking for a more robust fixed blade for your next backcountry adventure, we suggest taking a good long look at the Cold Steel Outdoorsman. With a 6-inch blade forged from VG-10 San Mai steel, the highly-rated Outdoorsman is currently available for just over $97 on Amazon, a major markdown from its normal MSRP of $219.99.
Whether you’re gearing up for your next outdoor excursion or just looking for a fresh folder for your arsenal, these Cold Steel blades are practically a steal — as are some of the other deals in The Gear List today. Check them out below, and as always, happy hunting!
