Cold Steel Tuff Lite, 2.5" Plain Blade, Griv-Ex Handle - 20LT
Cold Steel is known for its humungous folding knives with blades stretching up to 6 inches long. But what if I told you one of Cold Steel's best knives was a small folder with a cute little Wharncliffe blade.
That would be the Cold Steel Tuff Lite.
Cold Steel creates knives that are meant to be worked hard without fear of failure. Despite the Tuff Lite's small size and stature, Cold Steel delivers.
The blade features a 2.5-inch blade made from Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel, an alloy known for its ease to sharpen and toughness. With a classic Wharncliffe design, the blade has a straight edge and a point that can pierce. This underrated blade shape is deceptively versatile for everyday carry.
Thanks to a capsule-shaped cutout, the blade opens smoothly with one hand ambidextrously -- even when you're wearing gloves. Because this knife is meant to be pushed hard, it uses Andrew Demko's Tri-Ad Lock, one of the most reliable locks on the market.
The all black handles are made from Griv-Ex, fiberglass-reinforced nylon that's exceptionally durable and soft on the hands. Near the butt of the handle is another capsule cutout for a lanyard. This helps cut down on the weight even more to create a knife that's only 2.5 ounces.
Along with a reversible tip-down carry pocket clip, this is the kind of knife you can feel comfortable taking anywhere you go.

Very good knife, extremely sharp out of the box, good size & comfortable in the hand. The blade shape is limited to cutting only, so as an EDC it has its limitations. The closing action is a little stiff, needs to be jiggled a bit to get the blade to disengage. Light weight, attractive design.
