This Tuff-Lite folder has a flat dark earth Griv-Ex handle and a satin finished blade made from AUS 8A stainless steel.
The Cold Steel Tuff-Lite was built for hard work and designed for lightweight carry. This stout folder features textured Griv-Ex handles that provide a sturdy, ergonomic grip. It's equipped with an ambidextrous pocket clip that is reversible for left or right hand carry. The blade opens with an ample thumb hole and locks up solid with Cold Steel's state of the art Tri-Ad lock. Experience EDC perfection with the Cold Steel Tuff-Lite.Features:
First off, I am usually a Benchmade or Spyderco guy, but I figured I'd give the Cold Steel a try For something small in the pocket. As it turns out I actually really like it, the lock is fantastic, the frame seems durable and the blade came very sharp out of the Box. Highly recommended.
Locks up like a bank vault. Very ergonomic handle. Steel does the job. Easy to resharpen. Wish it was tip up clip but not a big deal.
the edge was great out of the box, softer steel but they always strop up nice. the action is hard to describe but i really like it, its smooth and assuring.
I got all four colors, and am giving away 3 of them as gifts. The knife is a super great value, and the blade is very solid and sharp. It's tip-down carry only, which I'm not a fan of, but regardless, I'd recommend to anyone.
I keep the mini with me on a keychain, but the full size Tuff Lite is just as reliable in a larger package. The knife just flows from the handle to the tip of the blade. If you are OK with the performance of AUS-8 (I am) versus the newest super-steel release, then this might even give that Dragonfly2 in your pocket a value-driven run for the money. Let's hope that CS doesn't try to 4034 this dependable worker.
