CS26SP: 26SP Ti-Lite
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.

Custom quality folding knives, especially those manufactured with Titanium handles and Titanium leaf spring locks are undeniably strong, lightweight, and beautiful to look at, but they're also quite expensive.

We know that many of our customers love the look of our Ti-Lites but find the prices a little steep. So we have created some very affordable alternatives. The Zy-Ex Ti-Lite with a 4 inch blade mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly, and our model that features a 6 inch blade is a completely unique Ti-Lite, virtually in a class by itself.

Instead of 7075 Aluminum, we used 43% glass filled Zy-Ex for the handles and high quality stainless steel for the leaf spring lock and liners. The results are extraordinarily lightweight knives that are remarkably strong, sharp and good looking, at a price almost everyone can afford.

Favorite
I owned this style knife for 8 years. I went and left it in a campground bathroom. It is the best knife I have owned. Love the fast open action from the pocket and holds a very good edge. Ordered this one as soon as I could. Couldn't live without it.

Well made, high quality knife!
This is the third cold steel knife I've owned. My brother-in-law had a very nice Recon folder which I was impressed with. I never really considered cold steel 4 folding knives but I decided to give this one a shot since I wanted a tactical blade. I was very impressed by the smooth action and tight lockup. Trust me you will not be disappointed with this nice. I own many different knives including Benchmade, Spyderco, and Kershaw. This knife hangs in there with the best of them.

Great modern take on the stiletto
I use this product as part of my edc rotation, as well as a collection piece. I'd never owned a stiletto style knife before, and instead of starting out with a really expensive Frank B. or something, I decided to go with this one. With modern materials (the AUS-8A in this knife has much better properties than the steels used in traditional stilettos) and a tip up pocket clip, (as well as it not being an auto, which is illegal where I live) , this knife was much more ideal for edc. The only downsides are the pocket clip and thumb stud are non-swappable (I'm not a leftie so it's not a big deal) and that they made a weird decision to face the sharp side of the quillion without jimping towards your thumb in a sabre grip, where it really digs in and takes away from the otherwise fairly ergonomic design. One more thing is that the shallow grind on this knife kind of takes away from it's slicing ability (although oh does come shaving sharp out of box) Otherwise this is a great product. Keep it up Cold Steel!
