CS20NSC: 20NSC Pro-Lite Folding Knife, Clip Point
Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Pro-Lite was developed with one clear aim. To offer a folding knife with all of the strength and durability that Cold Steel fans and customers have come to expect from their products but at an even more affordable price! Designed by celebrated custom knifemaker Andrew Demko, the Pro-Lite features a stonewashed 4116 Stainless Steel blade (in either clip point or tanto configurations) that will take a very sharp edge, while still being incredibly easy to re-sharpen in the field. 

It also features a tough matte black polymer handle with integrated lanyard hole and reversible ambidextrous pocket clip for left or right handed users. Equipped with the groundbreaking Tri-Ad locking mechanism for added safety and strength, the Pro-Lite has withstood all of the grueling and torturous quality control tests that Cold Steel is famous for. If you are looking for a tough, high-performance folding knife that won’t break the bank - your search is over!

Worthy EDC Beater!
I, too, chose this knife as an add on to a kitchen cutlery order. After operating the tri-ad lock a few dozen times I can now close with ease. The handle is a little blocky, unfinshed, but not an impediment to carry or use. A worthy EDC beater.

Great Value For The Price
I bought this knife because I happened to be ordering some other things and couldn’t resist the sale price of less than $25. The knife is just what you would expect from Cold Steel; well made, lines up nicely, really sharp, and locks up tight. Unfortunately that’s a bit of an issue. It is really difficult to unlock. If it weren’t for that, I would have given this knife five stars just on value alone.A solid, simple, robust knife. Excellent value at the sale price.

Cons: None
Good price, GREAT knife
Came SCARY sharp. I've shaved missed facial hair with this thing. I've never gotten a knife this sharp from the manufacturer. I love the light weight. The pocket clip is sturdy and correctly placed for left and right hands. The lock is a bit stiff, I know that this will change with usage.
