    Gaurdian Tactical RECON-035...

    Posted by alan minzenberger on Jun 7th 2022

    Did a lot of research on the top OTF knives made in the USA before deciding on the 035. Chose the 035 because of looks, the blade steel which is Elmax and the ceramic ball bearings in the thumb slide. It did not disappoint. Scary sharp out of the box and opens as smooth as any knife I own. Worth every penny

    GT Recon-035 and an amazing knife store

    Posted by Shadrach on Apr 27th 2021

    2 things: First - the GT Recon-035 is an amazing knife with great action and is perfect in the hand. I think this will have a permanent place in my EDC. My only qualm is the lack of left-hand clip since I do prefer left-hand carry. Second - EKnives is the only place I found that said they had this knife in stock and actually had it. I tried 3 other places, making orders, paying, calling to ask why my order didn't ship, then getting reimbursed when they admitted to not having the knife. I ordered from EKnives and within a few days, the knife is at my door packaged with the attention that lets you know they care. This is now my first stop for knives.

    GT Recon-035 Awesome OTF!!

    Posted by Bernard Orosz Jr on Apr 24th 2021

    This is my first high quality OTF, and after one week, I'm very impressed so far. Based on most reviews, I knew that the action would be one it it's best features... and it absolutely is. But, what has surprised me the most, is the excellent workmanship of the Recon-035. This OTF just oozes quality. In hand, it feels high-end and looks great. It's also lighter than I expected. My Recon-35 is suppose to be red, but actually looks more maroon to me which I think is better. The subtle 'maroon' color along with the stonewash blade, gives it a real classy look. Initially, I was concerned about blade play and the 'rattle' some reviewers mentioned. Yes, there is slight blade play (common to OTF's), and yes I hear a tiny rattle if I shake it near my ear. But honestly, who pulls on the blade, and who shakes an OTF next to their ear? Under normal usage, these two 'issues' aren't issues. Just carry this OTF and enjoy it! I took advantage of EKnive's $25 off first order (of $200 or more), and that makes this Recon-035 even sweeter. EKnives was easy to order from and offers free shipping. They processed and delivered my order very quickly. I will be a repeat customer especially since they also offer a 5% military service discount.
