About Us

Established in 1986, Recon 1 started its journey as a neighborhood military surplus store. Over the past several years, we have rapidly risen to become the ultimate destination for handcrafted custom and top-tier production pocket knives, along with a wide array of high-quality gear. With our unwavering dedication, the brother and sister team of Sako and Tamar, alongside the incredible Jack, strive to provide unparalleled customer service.

We invite you to explore our new website, where you'll find a treasure trove of exceptional products. And if you happen to be in the neighborhood, we warmly encourage you to pay a visit to our store in Encino, CA. It would be our pleasure to welcome you.

At Recon 1, we take pride in being dealers of renowned brands such as Shirogorov Knives, WingmanEDC, Chris Reeve, Microtech, Benchmade, Shun Kitchen Cutlery, Zero Tolerance, and other esteemed names in the industry.

We look forward exceeding your expectations with our outstanding selection and impeccable service.
