The Cold Steel Ti-Lite 6″ Zy-Ex is a version of the Cold Steel Ti-Lite made for those on a budget. The handle measures in at about 7 inches, and is made of 43% glass filled Zy-Ex. Zy-Ex is is the trade name for a high temperature, engineering grade polymer known as polyetheretherketone, or PEEK for short. The PEEK monofilaments and fibers are very tough and durable, and have excellent abrasion resistance, particularly at higher temperatures. The material’s melting point is 633°F (334°C), very high for plastic, and the material retains up to 90% strength even at temperatures of 570°F (300°C). The blade is 6in long, and the steel used is AUS8, a middle to high quality Japanese stainless steel that is rugged and dependable.
A snippet on the Cold Steel Ti-Lite 6″ Zy-Ex:
“Our Zy-Ex Ti-Lites mimic the look of their more expensive counterparts almost exactly – but instead of 7075 Aluminum, we use 43% glass filled Zy-Ex for the handles, and Japanese AUS 8A instead of American XHP for the blades. The resulting knives are extraordinarily lightweight, while remaining remarkably strong, sharp and good looking – at a price almost everyone can afford!” -Cold Steel
