CS20MT: Mini Tuff Lite
Cold Steel

Tough enough to do the job and light enough to be handy, Cold Steel's Mini Tuff-Lite folder is there when you need it. It's perfectly sized to slip into a pocket, clip to your waistband, or wear around your neck on a lanyard.

It offers a 2" long, wide, hollow ground blade that's mercilessly sharp and can shear through the toughest materials with unexpected ease. It's highly useful for precision work and delivers deep penetration, yet its un-aggressive looking slant point tip, isn't likely to draw unwelcome attention.

The Mini Tuff-Lite is bred for work and offers a surprisingly good grip due to its superbly engineered handle. Made of Grivory, it offers an enormous strength to weight ratio and features our state of the art Tri-Ad® lock, which gives it astonishing muscle for its size.

It's inconspicuous and small, yet strong and tough. And it's light enough to carry with ease. Surely, it¹s the best accessory you'll ever carry.

Decent, civilized pocketknife
I purchased this knife because I am a college student and my campus rules state that I am allowed to carry a pocketknife with up to a 2" long blade. None of my other knives fit the bill and I am never without the single tool that determines survival when it hits the fan. That being said, I was looking for a more civilized pocketknife that wouldn't draw the wrong kind of attention but wouldn't leave me unprotected. This knife does just that. It is basically a very small, yet functional, razor blade folder. It is extremely sharp and has great ergonomics. I don't expect the knife to move mountains, just sit in my pocket and be capable of simple day-to-day tasks. When I need to carry a weapon, that is what my Ti-Lite and San Mai Black Talon are for. However, when I need to fit into society, I have this little guy. Most of what others have reviewed apply to this knife. I find the ease of opening just fine and can close the knife one handed if I depress the lock and then use my leg on the blade spine to close it. I see one drawback only to the longevity of this knife and wish I had known before purchasing. It does not have a metal liner. It's architecture could use said liner because the handle is only the "grivory" material which may one day break or crack. However, for the cost, intended use, blade material, ergonomics, and size it is worth the price. I kinda wish I had purchased the bigger version of this blade but I can't justify spending 12 more dollars on 1" inch more of handle and 0.025" in. thicker blade.

Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
Excellent tiny knife, but I like it's slightly larger brother better.
This is a great knife! I've had the slightly bigger version of this knife for over a year now and absolutely love it. This one is just as good, but I find that being a tad smaller makes it just a little less useful; and a tad harder to push in the lock-back to fold the knife. I've been playing with it for a few weeks now, and it seems to be a little better; but then again, maybe I'm just getting better at closing it. Love that they have a triad lock in a knife this tiny. It doesn't need a pocket clip; if you use it, you will lose the knife. The lanyard hole is nice and large - excellent design to this knife (as are most Cold Steel products). Bought it on sale - wish I had bought another to give away as a gift, great value, great knife!
