Ridiculously Awesome

After lusting over the 040 forever I finally pulled the trigger and man was I happy I did. Besides the NIGHTMARE shipping that north west knives does, the product is amazing.

I just started laughing when seeing it for the first time, the size is just massive. I have a 035 and I didn’t think it would be that much different, but it is.

The action is so smooth and the quality is superb. If you’re thinking of buying one, do it.

Fantastic Knife

What a great knife, I have yet to have any miss fires. This is my second Guardian Tactical, not sure I will be buying anymore from their USA made competitor.

Fantastic company. Amazing product!

So I got the Recon 40. My second one from Guardian Tactical. I’m So impressed with the quality of this piece that I needed to get a second one just to keep. The first one I got my whole crew use and it’s unbeatable. It beats the Combat Troodon by a landslide. Sorry but we have several in our crew. There isn’t even a comparison. Elmax is a great steel. So is M390. This Recon 40 was WICKEDLY sharp out of the box. I’ll be getting another I’m sure. It’s that good. Northwest Knives got it to me really quick as well. I was surprised twice now. If you’re looking for a full sized OTF I don’t think there is any competition right now for a working knife.

Guardian Tactical Recon 040 - Stonewash Elmax Blade / Black Aluminum Handle

Excellent Monster. Excellent Company.

The Guardian 040 is a solid beast! Well made. I like pocket knives on the larger side, but even so, prefer the Guardian O35 (smaller version) especially the green handle with tanto stonewash blade. Northwest Knives shipped quickly. NW Knives: 1. My responsible spending habits: 0.
