CS26ASTX: 26ASTX Ti-Lite
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 quillon 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.

Cons: None
A True Pocket Sword.
Another gem from COLD STEEL KNIVES. The blade needed no sharpening out of the box---very typical of the manufacturer. The handle is unusually comfortable. I have heard many blades called pocket swords. THIS is a POCKET SWORD. It has a permanent place in my jacket as an everyday knife. I have used it a lot with cutting. It stabs better than slashes but it does both well. The price offered by the KNIFE CENTER is phenomenal. I will never buy from another dealer. Thank you!

cold steel ti-lite folding 6 inch
this is the biggest folder I have ever owned. the blade came sharp with a great point. I carry a Benchmade normally, so the open/lock system felt awkward at first, but I was soon able to open with a single flip. The knife is heavy, and the alum. handle slick. however the handle is long enough for the biggest hands and thick enough for a good grip. I'm impressed with the overall quality of the knife; clean lines, good materials, quality workmanship. the locking mech is basic in design with a strong spring and tight pivot. I honestly can't think of a purpose for this knife outside of tactical and self defense, though I would practice opening it until it can be done quickly without taking your eyes off your asaylant! once open, this knife is so intimidating that you may not have to use it.

Great knife I love the fact that it has a catch which will open the knife as you pull it out of your pocket. Shipping and handeling was extremely fast as well.
