This Voyager features an AUS-10A steel tanto blade, ground to a thin edge for maximum shearing potential and, because of the high carbon content of the steel and excellent heat treatment, you'll find its sharpness lasting a surprisingly long time.
Cold Steel's Voyager Series offers all the other latest refinements in lock-back construction including lightning quick, one-handed opening, state of the art mechanical fasteners, massively oversized pivot pins that are fully adjustable and properly hardened, and dual stainless steel pocket clips for ambidextrous carry and deployment.
The Griv-Ex™ handles feature 6061 heat treated aluminum liners for the utmost in strength and stiffness and are ergonomically designed to afford a wide array of grip options including the palm reinforced forward grip for which they are particularly well suited.
Information from Cold Steel
I’ve had my tanto voyager for over 5 years and it’s never let me down. It was my primary backpacking knife because it Is super easy to carry and is infinitely adaptable. I’ve used it to baton wood, skin game, carve feather sticks, cut climbing rope, and really everything in between. I beat this knife silly and it’s never failed me. Not to mention the feeling of security that comes with knowing you’ve got a sword in your pocket.
This blade is made to put the fear liver and onions into your enemies! Once unleashed, this blade of holy light is big enough to reach out and touch someone! If you do not have a firearm available and your life is in danger, you could quickly dispatch evil with this pocket sword that Conan himself would be proud to own! This noble blade will be stored on a silk pillow along side my Espada XL when not in use! Do Not hesitate! Buy this now- the price is fantastic for this defender of Life and Freedom !!
This knife is an absolute beast! Any Voyager is a true working knife. If you want a knife that can do almost anything ( except edc ) buy a Voyager. I have two myself and would recommend it to anyone. For some reason the pocket clip came super tight on both of my voyagers. I'm not sure if that's a thing that Cold Steel does or what.
I've always wanted something huge, so I picked one of these up some time ago. Since it's pretty big and hefty, I don't carry it on my person very often so it stays in a backpack or the car. It's fun to use, durable, and the Tri-ad lock is really great, and it gets the job done.
This is a weapon. A large, agile, folding weapon. It can also be used as a miniature machete. The knife has impressed me. It came shaving sharp out of the box, the folding action is smooth, and the lock will not budge. Upon seeing the size of the knife in person, I thought I would never be able to carry it. Granted it is large, but it carries comfortably in any fairly deep pocket without feeling like you're carrying a brick. I can even carry it in gym shorts with no problems. It takes up some room, but I can carry this knife and my wallet in the same pocket with no problem. As for its use, this knife is meant to be a weapon. It works as an edc blade, but it is very obviously oversized for most tasks. However, its usability as a weapon is great. With a sharp yank, this knife will draw from the pocket and can be deployed quickly. The handle is contoured for two main grips. Either a standard saber grip at the top of the handle, or a handshake grip at the bottom with your pinky in the bottom groove. The standard grip gives good agility and point control, while the retracted handshake grip puts the balance point further up and really lets you feel the cutting power. This knife is meant to be a weapon for self defense, either on its own or as a backup to a gun. This is not a normal pocket knife for normal tasks. Maybe if you are wanting to use it for ranch or field work. This knife readily fulfills its purpose as a weapon and gave me exactly what I was looking for. The length of a fighting knife, the sturdiness of a fixed blade, and the ease of carry of a folding knife.
