CS26SP: 26SP 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.

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 Zy-Ex Ti-Lite with a 4 inch blade mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly, and our model that features a 6 inch blade is a completely unique Ti-Lite, virtually in a class by itself.

Instead of 7075 Aluminum, we used 43% glass filled Zy-Ex 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.

Cold Steel Ti-Lite 4”
For many years I have liked to design and looks of this knife. Over the years I have purchased 3 of them. The first I purchased must have been back in the 80’s. Loved it. Then lost it. Unfortunately I bought some 15 years ago and the blade had more play in then a little baseball team. Not real expensive so I decided I’d give it another try and bought another one. The play in that blade was even worse. If there’s one thing I can’t stand in my folders is blade play that’s why I very reluctant to pull the trigger on a 4th one.

First cold steel knife.
Good blade, knife feels o.k in hand, wish it had more of a finger guard. Difficult to open, but probably need practice with this knife. Wish the weak attempt at a finger flipper was larger. This knife seems like a solid build for under $50 dollars. Blade isn't especially sharp but that isn't a deal breaker. Have never looked at a knife clip and thought wow I wish more of my knife was exposed. Don't know why all knifes don't have a deep carry clip, the clip on this knife exposes the top inch of your knife. If I thought this might be a EDC, would search out a aftermarket deep carry clip, but don't see me carrying this, Had thought about buying a 2nd cold steel knife, changed my mind.

Excellent purchase
This knife went absolutely above and beyond my expectations. It is razor sharp right out of the box, able to shave hair off of my arm with no problems. Weighing in at around 4oz makes this an easy knife to handle and carry for EDC. Don't let the weight fool you though, the frame is strong and sturdy enough to be used as a decent impact tool, especially if you make use of the spurs on the big quillion. The blade firmly locks in place with the help of the either quillion and a flick of the wrist. The ability to open from the pocket in one fluid motion is a nice feature but it needs to be done with confidence otherwise it will awkwardly open 50-75% of the way. It takes a decent effort to open up the blade without the flick which is great knowing it won't open up in my pocket. The leaf spring locks are of high quality and make opening/closing the knife with one hand that much easier.The one thing I have a small issue with is the belt clip. Unless Cold Steel makes special orders for left handed users this is mainly for right handed users to use comfortably. The belt clip is also a little bit too tight for some thicker denim to slide under but definitely keeps it from falling out or shifting around. Not a huge deal breaker but it does take some getting used to, I assume it would loosen up and I'll be more familiar with use over time. Overall, this is a great knife and definitely worth the price for what you get. Look into the Ti Lite 6 if you are looking for a bit bigger version of the same knife.
