Customer Reviews

Didnt want to love it but I do!
Levi C. on Jan 20, 2018

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.

Destroys cardboard.
Aaron B. on Jan 27, 2018

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.

very slicy grind.
Dillon G. on Nov 11, 2022

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.

Great Knife, Least Favorite Color
Walter C. on Feb 25, 2019

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.

What's not to like
Eric J. on Sep 12, 2020

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.
