CS20LT: Tuff Lite, Plain Edge
Cold Steel
Tough enough to do the job and light enough to be handy, Cold Steel's Tuff-Lite folders are there when you need them. They're perfectly sized to slip into a pocket, clip to your waistband, or wear around your neck on a lanyard.

Offering wide, hollow ground, 2 and 2 1/2 inch blades, they are mercilessly sharp and can shear through the toughest materials with unexpected ease. And, due to their slant point, they offer deep penetration and precision cutting potential without appearing aggressive enough to draw unwanted attention.

The Mini Tuff-Lite folders are bred for work and offer a surprisingly good grip due to their superbly engineered handles. Made of Grivory, they offer an enormous strength to weight ratio and feature our state of the art Tri-Ad® lock, which gives them astonishing muscle for their size.

Small and inconspicuous, yet strong and tough enough to prevail in an emergency, they make terrific 24/7 companions for all walks of life.

Has potential!
1st., I was impressed that the edge was almost as sharp as one of mine! I prefer thumb stud for opening, and I do not care for hollow grind, once this edge looses its' bite it snags (I'm not talking about 'dull'). Personal experience concave or flat with secondary will still cut keenly even after the bite has mellowed. I will say this, it will take a keen edge pretty quick! I like the handle material, and the lock is STRONG!!!! I use it every day, it has a lot of potential! The pocket clip has eased up and is easier now to clip to my pocket and really has a nice hold! I love that the pocket clip can be switched to either side. AUS-8 is a nice steel but hollow grind?????? I do not think this is the best grind for AUS-8.

My New Favorite Knife
This knife is excellent, my new favorite knife. The lock is solid. I love the blade shape. The handle just fits my hand, but thats fine by me. The finger choil in the blade makes up for that.(cutout for your finger) The blade comes razor sharp. I've resharpened the blade on my lansky, and the 17 degree slot ligned up perfectly with the edge. Only one concern here, but I know this as I use the knife. The tip is very thin, and I almost snapped it off. This is not a fault of the knife. This is just a bad habit and abuse on my part. I cant fault the knife for that. Excellent knife. I will buy another and I recommend this knife to everyone!
