The Recon-040 is a modern and innovative, full-sized, tactical, double-action, out-the-front automatic. With patented steel thumb slide base and floating blade construction the Recon-040 is smooth and reliable in its operation while having minimal play and a rock solid feel. This version comes with a stonewashed, partially serrated, single edge Elmax blade and black handle.
Brand new, direct from Guardian Tactical, USA.
Blade: Coming in at 4-inchs plus, the drop point blade sports a razor sharp, hollow grind and unsharpened top swedge. The plain edge section offers clean slicing while the partial serrations make short work of tough, fibrous materials. Dual fullers add visual appeal and pair well with the rugged, wear-hiding stonewashed finish. The blade operates on an innovative and patented floating mechanism that prevents undue wear on the blade as well as delivering a smooth, drag-free operation. Push the top slide, which rides smoothly on bearings and a non-magnetic stainless steel plate, and the blade deploys and retracts with a decisive action.
Handle: Black hard anodized, aircraft grade aluminum houses the blade and automatic mechanism with subtle finger contours and strategic milling on the sides for a solid, secure grip. At over 5.5 inches in length the Recon 040 has plenty of real estate for even the largest of gloved hands. Construction is completed with Torx hardware, lanyard hole and hardened steel glass breaker pommel end.
Carries via a reversible, tip down only pocket clip.
Bohler Elmax: Elmax has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. Elmax also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid corrosion (rust) by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Elmax has very similar performance to M390 and is used interchangeably by Microtech.
