Folding Knife - Tactical, EDC, Utility
Cold Steel Air Lite Drop Point, AUS-10A Stainless Steel, G10 Handle
Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication. New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock & locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it. Of course Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years.
We know many of our customers are more and more concerned about the weight and “bulk” of their EDC (every day carry) knife as there is a lot of competition for the limited space in their pockets. Cold Steel has focused on making a feather light (3.2 oz) ultra slim (8.8 mm thick) folder that can be carried 24/7 while still leaving room in the pocket for other essential gear. But what they didn’t do in the quest to make a super EDC knife was skimp on workmanship and materials. That’s why every knife in the Air Lite series exhibits flawless craftsmanship and premium materials. The blades are made from costly Japanese 10A stainless steel famed for its edge holding ability, strength and toughness and the handles are laser cut from real G-10. Even the locking mechanism can’t be beat as there is nothing better than our celebrated Tri-Ad® Lock when it comes to protecting your fingers. Budget friendly pricing, amazing sharpness, and enormously comfortable and practical, the Air Lites are hard to beat for every day carry!
