Description
CS29TLT: Voyager Large Tanto Point Plain Edge
Cold Steel

Our Voyagers® are, ounce for ounce, far stronger than 99.9% of our competitor's folders. And this is a fact, not an idle boast. Each knife features precision made parts with a stiff spring and our incomparable Tri-Ad® lock mechanism which is arguably the strongest, most reliable, low maintenance lock in the world!

The thick, extra wide blades are made from Japanese AUS 8A steel and meticulously ground to a thin edge for maximum shearing potential. This thin edge also allows us to hone each blade to astounding sharpness. And, because of the high carbon content of the steel, and their near perfect heat treatment, you'll find this sharpness last a surprisingly long time.

If you like serrations, you'll really appreciate our exclusive pattern. It features groups of very small, sharply pointed teeth separated by wide, shallow arcs so it will rip smoothly yet very aggressively through a wide variety of tough fibrous materials without snagging or hanging up.

The Voyager® Series also 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 Grivory 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.

Grivory is unparalleled as a handle material as it is considerably stronger than Zytel® and, when deeply textured, offers a terrific non-slip grip. As an added bonus, it's impervious to moisture and won't crack, warp or shrink and remains remarkably resistant to abrasion or discoloration.

As tools these lightweight, super sharp knives are appropriate in almost any environment from hunting and camping to hiking and general utility chores. They can also readily fill specialty functions such as a boat or river knife, chute knife or police/military and survival/rescue applications.

Pros:

Wonderful. Just wonderful.
I've owned various incarnations of the voyagers for over 10 years. By far, the newer, beefier versions are hands down my favorite. The handles are beefy and incredibly comfortable. Lots of traction. And lots of real estate to choke up, or choke down on the blade as needed. It "locks" into the hand very well. When I have a solid grip on it, I know my hand is sliding up or down until I let go. The pocket clips are tight, and stay tight. I've yet to need to re-tighten, or re-bend a clip back to shape. Very small and non obtrusive as well. it can feel a little fat in the pocket if you wear form fitting pants. I prefer to carry my knife in my rear, right hand pocket, so this is a non-issue for me. The Tri-ad lock is fantastic. I have yet to have one fail on me yet. And I've banged and thumped on it a lot. Even do some batoning from time to time, with no issue. I've never had to adjust or tighten up any side to side play in the blade either. The stone wash finish on the blade wears very well, and looks fantastic. Pictures online do not do it justice. A very simple look, that is both classy and rugged at the same time. The Blade is AUS8 steel. For the price, AUS8 is one of the best all around folding blade steeled out there in my opinion. A good combination of rust resistance, edge retention and easy to sharpen. I touch up the blade once in awhile in my free time, but it has never "gone dull" during a job. I am not a fan of tanto blades for "bush" work, as there is no belly. Then again, if I'm out in the bush, I prefer a fixed blade anyways. But, I have actually brought this knife (and other voyagers) out on day hikes, and is about the only folding knife I would rely on in the bush if I needed to do tasks not usually suited for a folding knife. However, I do find tantos to be better at tasks more often found in urban/suburban environments where I live and work. Whether it be breaking down boxes, cutting heavy duty zipties, or opening plastic clam shell packaging. The "yokote" (aka, the sharp angle of the blade where the belly should be), acts much like a box cutter. It'll sharpen pencils, carve out shims/wedges, and turn sticks into pointy sticks with no problem as well. The tip is very strong, I have used it for prying out heavy duty staples in cardboard, and popping the safety of off plenty of Bic lighters. As a last ditch defensive weapon, this fits all the minimum criteria I would want in a blade. At under $50... BUY THIS KNIFE or at least one of it's cousins. One of the best folding knives I have owned. One thing though, I am not a fan of Cold Steel's serrations. I find that they wear down, and chip very easily, and are hard to resharpen. Then again, I've used their serrations to do everything from saw thru the husk of a coconut to cutting multiple layers of carpet... But for me, with the edge holding capabilities this knife has, it's not really needed.

one of the most ergonomic grips ever...
This knife is a replacement for its earlier version that I bought ten years ago, and usually I dislike change; everything that cold steel altered about the voyager tanto has improved it, (which I had not thought possible). The two best changes, in order of importance to me: 1) cold steel's triad lock has been instituted in the new knife design since its inception. 2) the grivory handle has been contoured to accommodate multiple grips and fattened to fit better than most folders to the palm. Other small changes that I have noticed: The blade finish is a slightly bead blast look which has the vague light scattering effect of galvanized steel sheet metal; this looks neat and dampens the shine off of the blade. The one thing I don't like is particular to many of cold steel's knives, and that is the curved clip. The curvature was designed to fit the new awesome "scimitar" hilts on a lot of their knives, and can be difficult to disengage from pants with any speed. I would also like to see a wave hook featured on pretty much every folder in the future--in my opinion it should be a standard feature, like a locking mechanism or clip. All in all, this folder is even better than before, with just a little nit picking on my part about a clip that most people would probably love.

Very Good Knife
This is a very good knife. It is very sharp out of the box. The handles on this Voyager are much thicker than previous models and the blade is wider also, not necessarily worse or better - just different. This makes the knife easier to hold and use, but more bulky in the pocket. My only real complaint is that the clip is Very tight and with the sharp checkering on the handle it chews up the pants pocket.
