CS26SP: 4" Ti-Lite with Zytel Handles
Cold Steel

Ti-Lite® tactical folders evoke the sleek speed and rebellious lines of the classic 1950’s-styled switchblade. Unlike most switchblades however, they are legal to carry nearly everywhere.

They feature Japanese made AUS 8A stainless steel blades with a bead blast finish, razor sharp edges and sturdy, needle sharp points. The CNC milled handles are forged from super tough 7075 Aluminum billets and are given an attractive bead blast surface and finished with a protective EDP (Electric Discharge Plating) coating. And for maximum strength and safety, we have equipped our Ti-Lites® with our patent pending, stainless steel leaf spring locks (proven, in our tests, to hold 130 lbs).

For ease of carry, the Ti-Lites® come equipped with a small, but unobtrusive steel pocket clip, and can be opened rapidly by using the thumb studs or by snagging a quillion on the edge of your pocket as you draw your knife out.

We are grateful to custom knife maker, Phil Boguszewski, for his design influence and help in the creation of the Ti-Lites.®

The Zytel® Handled Ti-Lites®

Custom quality folding knives, especially those manufactured with Titanium handles and Titanium leaf spring locks are undeniably strong, lightweight, and beautiful to look at, but they’re also quite expensive.

We know that many of our customers love the look of our Ti-Lites® but find the prices a little steep. So we have created some very affordable alternatives. The Zytel® Ti-Lite® with a 4 inch blade mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly, and our model that features a six inch blade is a completely unique Ti-Lite,® virtually in a class by itself.

Instead of 7075 Aluminum, we used 43% glass filled Zytel® for the handles and high quality stainless steel for the leaf spring lock and liners. The results are extraordinarily lightweight knives that are remarkably strong, sharp and good looking, at a price almost everyone can afford.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Solid build, great value
Very solid build, smooth opening, no blade play. Pocket clip is tip-up carry only, but that's how I like it. Came razor sharp (I cut myself). Thumb stud is righthand opening only; can't switch for lefties because liner lock is in the way. Thumb stud is kind of hard to get to; could use a bezel around the stud to make it easier, but you can file the handle material pretty easy.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Outstanding EDC / Self Defense
NOTE: Definitely check your local laws before buying and carrying. In several states, these types of knives are considered stilettos and illegal to carry. I have nothing by the highest praise for another outstanding tool from Cold Steel. I consider all knives tools, they should serve a particular purpose. I own both the 4" and 6" inch models, both serve their intended purpose well. I'm particularly fond of the 6 inch model. I'm a big guy, I typically carry the 6 inch on my strong side hip, inside my waist band. When necessary, I can deploy it in second, and even use to closed as an impact weapon. It lightweight makes it quick in the hand.
