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.

Cons: None
Very Happy with Cold Steel & Knife Center
Cold Steel pays what seems to be extreme attention to detail. That makes me happy. I am more into knives for carrying and conversation than I am for using. I like knives. I want to buy from a company that likes knives and cares about the satisfaction of their customers. Cold Steel deserves their success because they work so hard for it. I will be purchasing more Cold Steel products from Knife Center soon.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
It seems well made for the price. Like all Cold Steel folders with the tri-ad, it's a bit stiff to close, but that lock is unbeatable especially for a 30- knife. The knife has a more utility look to it imo, so you don't get the wrong "ooohs and awwws" when you take this thing out. Knifecenter's service was awesome as always.

So nice, I bought it twice!
I bought the smaller version of this knife to use as a money clip / general use knife. It is fantastic! I bought this larger version because the small one was so perfect, and the bigger one is even better: 1. THICK blade = strength. You can use the back edge to pry, scrape, whatever. 2. Lock is VERY secure! It will NOT accidentally close during use. 3. Steel / Edge - I keep a razor edge hone on all my knives and this steel holds that edge very well. 4. Handle - sturdy, fits my hand well, and isn't slippery when wet. 5. Pocket clip - Sturdy and resilient. Clips tight with one bill or 10 bills. Snaps right back even after extended stretching. 6. Under 3" blade - legal in my state for folding knives. 7. UNDERVALUED... this knife is worth a LOT more than I paid for it.
