Cold Steel's Ti-Lite folding knives evoke the sleek speed and rebellious lines of the classic 1950's switchblade. The Ti-Lite VI mega folding knife features a sharp and strong CPM-S35VN stainless steel blades and CNC milled 7075 Aluminum handles which are finished with a protective EDP (Electric Discharge Plating) coating. The Ti-Lite 6 is equipped with Cold Steel's patent pending, stainless steel leaf spring lock (proven, in their tests, to hold upwards of 145 lbs). For ease of carry, the Ti-Lite XL comes 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. Cold Steel is grateful to custom knife maker, Phil Boguszewski, for his design influence and help in the creation of the Ti-Lites.
