A custom quality folding knife, especially one that's manufactured with a Titanium handle and a Titanium leaf spring lock is undeniably strong, lightweight, and beautiful to look at, but it's also quite expensive. Many love the look of the Ti-Lite but find the price a little steep. This is a very affordable alternative. The Zytel Ti-Lite mimics the look of its more expensive counterparts almost exactly. Instead of Titanium, Cold Steel has substituted 43% glass filled Zytel for the handle and 440A Sub Zero Quenched stainless steel for the leaf spring lock and liners. The result is an extraordinarily lightweight knife that is remarkably strong, sharp and good looking, at a price almost everyone can afford.
