Ti-Lite® 6 in., Folding Knife with black DLC-coated Carpenter CTS® XHP alloy steel blade and black G-10 handle
Cold Steel®'s Ti-Lite® folders evoke the sleek speed and rebellious lines of the classic 1950's-styled switchblade. Often imitated, but never equaled, the Ti-Lite® (designed by the late, great Phil Boguszewski) is a masterpiece of performance and style. Now, one of Cold Steel®'s most popular and enduring tactical folders is available with some of the highest quality American-made materials on the market!
This Premium format Ti-Lite® features a CTS® XHP powdered steel blade for superior edge holding potential and a rich black DLC (Diamond Like) coating for new levels of durability and scratch resistance. For maximum strength and safety, Cold Steel® has equipped this knife with stainless steel leaf spring locks (proven, in Cold Steel®'s in-house tests, to hold upwards of 145 lbs / 66 kg). The eye-catching curved quillions add to its rebellious design, while also facilitating a lightning-fast draw. Simply snag one on the corner of your pocket as you draw the knife, and the Ti-Lite®'s razor-sharp blade can be brought into play in the blink of an eye! For ease of carry, the Ti-Lites® come also equipped with a small, but unobtrusive steel pocket clip.
Each G-10 handle is painstakingly 3D CNC-machined and milled at great expense, providing an incredibly comfortable grip, however you choose to hold your knife. Furthermore, G-10 offers an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, rivalling even with the aluminum handled model while being a fraction of the weight!
Sleek, lightweight and undeniably good looking, the G-10 Ti-Lite® brings a whole new level of performance to an already legendary line of blades! Custom knife maker Andrew Demko said: If you look at this from a technical standpoint when you are talking about pure performance, you can't make this Ti-Lite® more top-of-the-line! It's taking a classic knife by an awesome custom knife maker to a whole new level!
