CS26ASTX: Aluminum Ti-Lite 6"
Cold Steel®

The 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. The CNC milled handles are forged from super tough 7075 Aluminum billets and are given an attractive bead blast surface and finished with a protective EDP (Electric Discharge Plating) coating. 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 quillion 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.®

Big Knife
This is a very large knife so it's not practical for EDC (every day carry). Fit and finish is very good. Awesome knife.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Perfect weapon, even unopened , hand fits tight on knife and is able to breath, balanced, can spin easily in one hand , I bought the 6" blade-AL case as suggested by others, gives an incredible feel of extension to the body, clip Is secure and just long enough to not lock up on the pocket when drawn, the off set center peg connecting the blade to the handle is a genius move in engineering allowing rapid opening and convenient use of the quick draw teeth on back of the blade, (note: if you don't hear it click lock open when using the draw teeth, assume that it is half open. I did not think it opened when I first used it and almost put the blade in my leg, the longer blade = longer swing = longer time to open, not like your rapid 3"blade), the lock is easily operated with one hand to close the knife. In all this knife is big, but after some use seems smaller....until you place it next to your old 3" pocket always a great cold steel 6th purchase from knife center, excellent service.

Cons: None
One word..... Fearsome!!!
Absolutely amazing!!! Mine came shaving sharp and has a super tight lockup and opens flawlessly. I like some heft to a knife so the weight is perfect and because of it being so solid you could use it to protect yourself without even opening it, once you snap it open it is one of the most fearsome blades you will ever see. All in all i feel its an amazing knife, well built and well worth it.
