CS20MTS: 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.

Solid little utility ripper @ a bargain price.
This is a fantastic little work knife which would really shine in areas with overly-restrictive blade ordinances, ie: in areas where law enforcement is particularly picky about blade length. The cutting edge is just long enough to handle most tasks which could be taken on by a larger folder or small fixed blade knife. It came wicked Cold Steel sharp,as usual, straight from the little box. Shaving sharp in, sharper than a factory fresh contractor-style razor knife. Cold Steel's serration pattern is still fantastic after all these years, if not a little bit hard to touch up with conventional sharpening equipment. That said, this rides so light, you almost forget about it until you need it, the clip is very tight & secure right out of the box & even grips light athletic shorts or thin khaki pants pockets very well. I almost always carry a larger, more dangerous folder for "urban emergencies" that doesn't see much utility use, though flying solo with just the Tuff Lite on my person, I don't feel under-prepared or under-armed at all. I noticed that unlike most lockback knives which use a spring-steel bar for pressure on the rocker lock, Cold Steel opted to use an actual small coil spring in this lockback mechanism, I'm guessing because the handle is so short, & it probably made manufacturing easier, & replacement or repairs easier as well. The lock's operation is consistent & snappy with every opening & closing cycle. Cold Steel's "Triad" lock is basically just a slightly-re-engineered lockback, but is typically stronger & more fail-proof. For all of the wacky & weird products Cold Steel puts out, they always redeem themselves with great little creative knives like these. This is a super light, rock solid little folder @ a very fair price. I review, use & purchase many knives all year round, & this may be in my top 5 favorites for 2011. Really cool, & makes a neat gift.

Cons: None
You know, Cold Steel keeps hitting it out of the park! What a great little knife. Super lite, super sharp (like a barracuda on steroids- I love the serrated teeth and needle point), and super fine. I love this small and handy powerhouse of cutting! Super lock system as well!
