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!

If you loved the original Voyagers...
This knife is everything good about the original Voyager line, before they got so expensive. Good steel, very strong Tri-ad lockback, simple steel clip, comfortable FRN handles with no steel liners to add weight. High value, Dependable working knife for about $20, can't go wrong.

Amazing Value For The Price
I love the blade on this knife. It is very solid and the fit and finish are very good to excellent. The handles are functional and, overall, the knife is lightweight. What I would like to change is the strength of the spring used in the handle to hold the blade in place and lock it. I was using Blue Lube to make opening a little easier, working the blade open and closed quickly, but without opening it all the way to lock it open. Not sure how I did this, but I lost my grip and the blade closed down on my index finger. All of a sudden there was a lot of blood. Totally my fault! But I don't think it would have been so serious if the spring was a little more relaxed. I have two of these knives. The only other thing that is lacking in both of them is the locking mechanism. Opening is easy, but it takes a lot of effort to depress the spring-loaded lever to unlock the blade to close it. I tried oiling the notch and that helped a little. But I require two hands to unlock the blade and close it on both of the knives I purchased.Even though the opening and closing is kind of stiff, I still think it's a great value for the quality of the materials. If I can, I would like to replace the handle material and fine tune the spring. Just can't beat this knife for the price.

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.
