  1. Hello! I searched the forums to find info on this and didn't see any. Does anyone know if CS will be upgrading the Tuff Lite steel? Would love to get one in AUS10a.
 
You didn't find any info cause there's been no info about it. Maybe they will some day, but it won't be this year.
 
Do you own a Tuff Lite? They're an amazing knife for around 20$ as is! Not a big fan of the discontinued mini tuff lite though.
 
i actually do own a few tuff lites but i find the 8A blade to be a bit lacking in edge holding. Price is great, but i wouldn't mind a few more dollars for a steel upgrade.
 
If the Tuff Lite gets an upgraded blade steel, either AUS-10 or S35VN and a tip up clip (THAT STAYS REVERSIBLE), I would absolutely be down for one up to $50 for AUS-10 or $80 for S35VN.

Yeah, the Tuff is one of my all-favorite knives. I'm thinking S35VN with linerless G10, maybe the same texture as the new AD10 would be amazing. Even just a sprint fun.
 
LC200N or Z-Finit, is not that much cheaper.
However, looking at the fact that Cold Steel likes to uniform their steel, if we do get an upgraded steel, which I sincerely hope, it would be S35VN, or in a miracle situation 20CV.
But in the end, I don't think they would boost their price for a knife that sells in masses.
And I don't remeber knowing Cold Steel for doing sprint runs like some others.

Well, I live in hope that Mr. Thompson sees our little thread and says "what the hell, let's do this!" :D
 
There is a lot more expense because of the manufacturer having to learn to make proper blades from the steel, new set up charges, and a whole host of other things. This would include marketing and many other things that space would not allow us to talk about. Plus some of these steels are not common So there knowledge base on how to use them is limited. Some other steals it may cost the same in raw material but are already well known and over all would be less expensive because of that.

Agreed on all accounts. I’d happily buy one or more in aus10.
 
How about putting the clip on the other end, so a small fob will actually work proper, and not go in the pocket first, please?
