With the Air Lite Series, Cold Steel knew many of their customers were 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. That’s why they 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 their quest to make a super EDC knife was skimp on workmanship and materials. That’s why every Tanto and Drop point blade in the Air Lite series exhibits flawless craftmanship 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 useable, the Air Lites are hard to beat for every day carry!
