CS20MT: Mini Tuff Lite
Cold Steel

Tough enough to do the job and light enough to be handy, Cold Steel's Mini Tuff-Lite folder is there when you need it. It's perfectly sized to slip into a pocket, clip to your waistband, or wear around your neck on a lanyard.

It offers a 2" long, wide, hollow ground blade that's mercilessly sharp and can shear through the toughest materials with unexpected ease. It's highly useful for precision work and delivers deep penetration, yet its un-aggressive looking slant point tip, isn't likely to draw unwelcome attention.

The Mini Tuff-Lite is bred for work and offers a surprisingly good grip due to its superbly engineered handle. Made of Grivory, it offers an enormous strength to weight ratio and features our state of the art Tri-Ad® lock, which gives it astonishing muscle for its size.

It's inconspicuous and small, yet strong and tough. And it's light enough to carry with ease. Surely, it¹s the best accessory you'll ever carry.

Great Everyday Knife
first off this was my first Cold Steel knife and first time dealing with KnifeCenter.Let me say i am very pleased with the outcome. I use this knife for work cutting boxes and carry it as a supplement to my other knife.This knife has a great edge out of the box razor sharp.Despite its size the way the handle is shaped it provides a solid grip.The locking mechanism is solid and it very easy to open one handed.I took the clip off mine since its small and put a lanyard on it and carry it in my pocket.Perfect little general purpose utility knife.

sharp blade sharper edges
The first thing I noticed when I eagerly examined the knife for the first time was how very sharp the the non blade edges of the knife were. Even inside the thumb loop the edges were sharp. It felt as though if you were to run your finger down the back edge of the knife it would most certainly cut you. I remedied this by pulling the knife apart and using a dremel with a course rubber pollishing wheel to round all the edges. The second thing I noticed was how difficult the lock was to disengage. It is infact a very secure locking mech but is cumbersome to disengage. Again I turned to the trusty dremel to dull a sharp edge on the lock mech to allow the thumb release to operate easier without affecting the integrity of the lock. It comes with a clip but I prefer to carry my knives tip up and since the only option is tip down I chose to remove the clip and pocket carry it. The blade is sharp and secure with very little lateral movement and seems to carry out a variety of tasks. All in all it is a pretty descent EDC knife that is light and takes up little room in your pocket but I would have been willing to spend a few dollars more for a little better quality.

Decent, civilized pocketknife
I purchased this knife because I am a college student and my campus rules state that I am allowed to carry a pocketknife with up to a 2" long blade. None of my other knives fit the bill and I am never without the single tool that determines survival when it hits the fan. That being said, I was looking for a more civilized pocketknife that wouldn't draw the wrong kind of attention but wouldn't leave me unprotected. This knife does just that. It is basically a very small, yet functional, razor blade folder. It is extremely sharp and has great ergonomics. I don't expect the knife to move mountains, just sit in my pocket and be capable of simple day-to-day tasks. When I need to carry a weapon, that is what my Ti-Lite and San Mai Black Talon are for. However, when I need to fit into society, I have this little guy. Most of what others have reviewed apply to this knife. I find the ease of opening just fine and can close the knife one handed if I depress the lock and then use my leg on the blade spine to close it. I see one drawback only to the longevity of this knife and wish I had known before purchasing. It does not have a metal liner. It's architecture could use said liner because the handle is only the "grivory" material which may one day break or crack. However, for the cost, intended use, blade material, ergonomics, and size it is worth the price. I kinda wish I had purchased the bigger version of this blade but I can't justify spending 12 more dollars on 1" inch more of handle and 0.025" in. thicker blade.
