26ACSTX: Ti-Lite Extra Large Folder (Bead Blast PlainEdge XHP Steel Blade)
Cold Steel Knives
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.
This Ti-Lite features a Carpenter CTS-XHP steel blade with a bead blast finish, razor sharp edge and sturdy, needle sharp point. 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, the Ti-Lites has been equipped with the patent pending, stainless steel leaf spring locks (proven in 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 quillon 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.

Another outstanding knife from Cold Steel. This amazing well balanced knife is paper shaving sharp. But very big. I was looking for the biggest knife I could carry in my pocket. If you are looking for an EDC knife you may want the 4 inch model.
I bought 2 of this model, one for myself and one for a relative, I also got 1 of the 4" models. Tested them out on a 15 lb. piece of beef, both blades went through it like butter, stabbing into meat no effort little pressure needed, letting gravity take effect i dropped them from about 1.5' and each penetrated half way into the meat. Using the 4" I did a reverse grip slash and the depth of the slice is something id expect from a much bigger knife. My relative tested the point by doing 4 med power stabs into a metal plate and dozens of throws into hard wood, the point still looks as it did coming out of the box. Super fast opening whichever method is used, very fine blade, the 4" is my edc now. Highly recommend this line of knives.%uFEFF
