Tough enough to do the job and light enough to be handy, Cold Steel's Tuff-Lite folders are there when you need them. They're perfectly sized to slip into a pocket, clip to your waistband, or wear around your neck on a lanyard. Offering wide, hollow ground, 2 and 2 1/2 inch blades, they are mercilessly sharp and can shear through the toughest materials with unexpected ease. And, due to their slant point, they offer deep penetration and precision cutting potential without appearing aggressive enough to draw unwanted attention.

UPDATE: I've been carrying this knife daily for over a year now and feel it deserves a little more of a review than I gave it initially. I'm something of a minimalist and try not to collect things. I buy a knife and wear it out and throw it in the trash and get a new one. I bought this one with my next one already picked out. I never spend more than about $40 and am pretty abusive to them as I view them as a tool to be used for whatever task is at hand.... not something pretty to put in a case to stare at.... I normally go through a couple a year. I paid about $20 for this little thing not expecting to have it long and I believe it has lasted longer than any EDC knife I've ever owned. It replaced a small Kershaw knife that I destroyed in just a few months. This little Cold Steel has been dropped, scraped, used to saw through things for which it was never intended, used for prying, for digging things out of the dirt... I've hammered on the back of it to drive it through thin metal... I've used the back of the blade for scraping rust off of bolts and carbon buildup off of gun parts. It has served as a utility knife for cutting carpet and shingles... It's been through the washer and dryer probably half a dozen times when I've forgotten it clipped to my jeans. One of the times after being through the washer and dryer it got a little stiff to open. I looked around the kitchen and grabbed the olive oil dispenser and poured a couple drops on it and it loosened up and has been fine ever since. That's about all it's had for maintenance other than dragging the blade, serrations and all, through a cheap knife sharpener about once per month. It certainly doesn't look like a new knife anymore, but it still functions perfectly and it may very well last another year or more if I don't snap the blade off by doing something ridiculous with it. Anyway, I'm impressed. Still sort of looking forward to trying the Spyderco Ladybug someday though.... if this Mini Tuff Lite would ever die.
I also give a thumbs up to the seller: I originally received a damaged knife; they immediately replaced it with their apologies, which I appreciated.
This is quite a bit smaller, but perfect to disappear in the pocket or when not needing a full-size "defensive" knife. The little stainless clip make sit so this little gem fits anywhere. Appears to be well made, and while I have only just started carrying / using it, it will most likely do the job.
Reason for the 4 stars? As good of a knife as this is, it's really, REALLY difficult to open/close with one hand. Yes, it's small, and maybe I was spoiled with the "speed-safe opener" of the last knife, but unless it wears in and loosens up a bit, this is a definite two handed opener or very slow with lots of concentration one hand opener.
The blade itself is very sharp right out of the box, and the serrations, while small, are quite handy. For those times that just a "little" something is needed in a pocket, this looks like it's going to do the job. If the opening eases up, I'll get back on to upgrade the rating.
It's ergonomics are great for a knife its size. Your fingers fit naturally in the two grooves, the handle fills your palm, and it feels like it was made to be a usable tool. Sharpening the small serrations is going to be next to impossible, but for the price I could toss it after a year and feel like it was a good investment (not that I would).
Cold steel has been mostly hit for me, with only a few misses. This is definitely a hit.
