The Silver Eye Elite is an everyday carry folder from designer Andrew Demko and Cold Steel that blends tactical and practical seamlessly. A production knife with a custom feel, the Silver Eye Elite is stylish enough for dress carry while being a capable and robust cutting tool. This version comes with a satin finished S35VN spear point blade and carbon fiber handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Cold Steel.
Blade: Demko hit the EDC sweet spot with this 3.5 inch blade, delivered here in a spear point profile with a classy two-toned satin finish for plenty of visual appeal. A hole cut out of the flats is fit with the HTR thumb ramp opening mechanism in silver, offering smooth and easy ambidextrous blade deployment on rugged bronze washers. A high saber grind and nearly full length top swedge offer a balance of slicing, piercing and durability perfect for daily use.
Handle: Silver hardware complements the classy carbon fiber handle scales and satin blade while delivering an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. The stylish look makes this an ideal choice for dress carry while retaining a rugged construction. Ergonomic and contoured with several finger grooves, the handle is comfortable and secure in multiple grip positions. The Tri-Ad mid-back lock is one of the strongest on the market, with solid reliability and easy operation for left and right-handed users. A through-clip hole allows for lanyard attachment.
Carries via reversible, tip-up stainless steel pocket clip.
CPM-S35VN: A modified version of S30V designed for improved toughness over and easier machining and polish. Toughness is improved roughly 15-20%, with a slight decrease in wear resistance (edge retention). Corrosion resistance is also lightly higher, close to AISI 420. S35VN is a well-balanced steel for daily use.
Tri-Ad Lock: The Tri-Ad lock system functions like any back lock: pushing down on a lock bar spring in the handle releases the blade. It differs by adding a stop pin between the blade tang and lock bar. This pin handles any pressure put on the knife and allows the spring to self adjust over time, resulting in a rock solid lock that can handle an absurd amount of weight in lock strength tests.
