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. 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. 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 Zytel handled Ti-Lite mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly, and our model that features a six inch blade is a completely unique Ti-Lite, virtually in a class by itself. Instead of 7075 Aluminum, we used 43% glass filled Zytel® 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.

"ONCE AGAIN, COLD STEEL KEEPS UP THEIR LEGENDARY REPUTATION!!! THIS TACTICAL-FOLDER IS JUST PLAIN AWESOME. THE ZYTEL HANDLE ADDS EXTREME DURABILITY AND OVERALL STRENGTH TO THIS PIECE. ALSO, THE LINER-LOCK ON THIS PIECE IS BY FAR ONE OF THE STRONGEST I'VE SEEN OR USED....CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING APROX. 120LBS. PRESSURE...AMAZING FOR A LINER-LOCK!!! THE JAPANESE AUS8 BLADE IS RAZOR SHARP STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX....REMINDS ME OF A STILETTO-STYLE BLADE OR EVEN A RAPIER-STYLE BLADE. BOTTOM-LINE, THIS PIECE IS MORE LIKE A SWORD IN YOUR POCKET!!!! LAST, THE HANDLE IN THE CLOSED-POSITION, IS QUITE EFFECTIVE FOR SELF-DEFENSE APPLICATIONS...SERVING AS A POWERFUL KUBOTAN. IN CONCLUSION, I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PIECE TO MARTIAL ARTISTS LIKE MYSELF OR TO ANY COLD STEEL FAN." -Guy (5/5)
