Cold Steel 26WT Air Lite Folder - AUS-10A Blade - Black G-10 Scales

Cold Steel realized that many of their 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. That’s why they've 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 Cold Steel 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. The handles are laser cut from top grade G-10. Even the locking mechanism can’t be beat as there is nothing better than their 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 ha great choice for every day carry!

More about AUS-10A steel:
Japanese AUS 10A steel could be referred to as the “big brother” of AUS 8A; the latter of which we’ve been using in Cold Steel products for over three decades. AUS 10A is a high-performance stainless alloy steel boasting all the properties of AUS 8A and then some! It’s an excellent steel for working knives - tough, corrosion-resistant, easy to re-sharpen, and is known for better edge retention than AUS 8A, due to its higher carbon content.
