A lower-cost version of the company’s popular AD-15 tactical folding knife, the Cold Steel AD-15 Lite is patterned after the Andrew Demko-made original and features his innovative Scorpion Lock. The design’s backspacer acts as a strong compression spring that is levered upward to disengage the blade, making for easy, one-hand opening and closing. The Lite’s injection-molded Griv-Ex scales are shaped with deep finger grooves for secure retention in the hand when cutting or piercing. Its 3.5" spear-point blade of AUS 10A steel is saber-ground and features a false edge and jimping along the spine. A reversible pocket clip provides for tip-up carry. Price: $160.
