CS26SXP: 6" Ti-Lite with Zytel Handles
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®.

The Zytel® Handled Ti-Lites®

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 Zytel® Ti-Lite® with a 4 inch blade mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly, and our model that features a six inch blade is a completely unique Ti-Lite®, virtually in a class by itself.

Instead of 7075 Aluminum, we used 43% glass filled Zytel® 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.

Great Knife but...
Absolutely a great knife. I bought it for my fishing & hunting but I should have looked up the knife regulations for Texas before buying. Check your State and local Laws before buying. Looks like I bought a nice wall decoration now.

Fine folding stiletto
This is a fine carry knife in the right pants. The blade is a great shape, although I spent an hour radiusing the false edge-just a preference. It cuts and pierces wonderfully. I did spend a lot of time putting a half-circle in the handle to access the top quillon. Now it opens with a flick of my index finger. It has received favorable comment from members of a a well known motorcycle club, and I plan to get the 4" version as my next knife.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
This is a seriously big knife! I would definitely recommend the smaller model for most people. I am a large man and it's a handful for me, but if you want the intimidation factor, this is the one for you! It is way cool and I'm glad I bought one. It's a little hard to open until you get the hang of it and the lock can be a bit difficult to release but it is getting easier as I repeatedly open and close it. I do recommend this knife.
