The Cold Steel Ti-Lite folder is reminiscent of the 1950's style switchblade, but unlike switchblades, is legal nearly everywhere. It's the sort of knife that, as soon as you pick it up, you get that extraordinary feeling of raw awesome—it's a masterful execution of a reimagined icon. As far as style, function, and affordability, the Ti-Lite can't be beat.
The Cold Steel Ti-Lite is available in a variety of colors and blade styles, steels, and finishes.
This knife is a wicked, intimidating blade of ominous background! This is made to defend your life with! Once released though, it cannot be recovered until it has spilt blood. This knife calls to you in a way that no other does. It has an undeniable thirst for vengeance and justice. While I do not condone violence, if you ever need to defend your life, this is the blade you need! But, be careful! The fury that exudes from this firey blade of vengeance is almost uncontrollable!
I love the quality of this knife. I already had the cheapest 6" version of this knife, with the 8A blade, and this is a nicer knife. The blade has a better edge and tip, although there was nothing wrong with the cheaper model. I guess because it's an upgraded model, though, this model has a 'detent' on the blade, where the cheap one didn't. Upside is that's it's better quality, downside is that you can't pick this model up and snap it open with a wrist flick, you have to open it with the thumb stud, which requires practice on a blade this size. As far as partially opening it, and then 'snapping it open', if you have ever had a sharp blade snap back on your fingers, you won't try it again, unless you're stupid. So, I am still happy with it, it really is much better quality, but if I had someone 'indicating' that I needed a knife really fast, like to pop a balloon, I would pick up the cheaper one.
