Description
CS29TXVS: Vaquero Voyager Ex. Large Serrated Edge
Cold Steel

The KnifeCenter considers the Vaquero series of folders from Cold Steel to be among the best knives produced over the last 20 years. The Voyager series in general are well designed and very well made and any Voyager will serve the user well for many years. Materials are all very good and the action and lockups are fast and solid. The Vaquero series, though, is especially suited to very quick slicing or tearing. The serrations are very aggressive and, on the small curves, the blade just about has steel hairs extending out. They are wicked sharp. Admittedly, through repeated use, those hairs will shrink, but these will still be very aggressive cutters. You can dress up the edge by sharpening the flat side of the blade but will eventually have to take a rat-tail file type sharpener into the serration grooves to sharpen it up.

Cold Steel says:"The Vaquero Voyager Series folders all feature our distinctive "S-Curve" clip point blade style. They are precision flat ground to form a long, shallow "V" shaped cross section. This is ideal for shearing through thick, fibrous materials such as manila rope, cable, hose, belts, etc. The serrated edges form a sinuous double curve. This means that whatever material is struck with the inward curving portion of the edge (near the hand) will automatically force the remaining curved edge entirely through.

These strong, handsome folders deliver an unequalled fit and finish. They are carefully machined and hand fitted by master craftsmen who take great pride in their work. Feel the power of the massively strong locking mechanisms as you thumb one of these blades open. The deeply checkered, and ergonomically designed Zytel® handles are cleverly reinforced with enough rigidity, strength, and toughness to virtually last a lifetime. Double thumb studs on each side of the razor sharp blade allow you to open these folders with either hand in the blink of an eye.

For convenience, a black stainless steel pocket clip is included. This allows for safe and secure carry in any environment."

Pros: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material
Good economy knife
This is typical Cold Steel product. Not bad in any real way but not outstanding overall either. You can tell that every decision in the material of this knife was a conscious one towards delivering a cheaply priced knife. The handle is average and feels light. The blade is nice but as thin as it could be before being considered weak and cheap. Good serrations that grab material and shred through. The knife is big but very light. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing. For me I'd prefer a bit more heft for such a large folder. The lock up when open is excellent. Good secure lock.

Pocket imacasa machete
I use it for yard work, cuts 1/2 inch green branches almost like my like my long imacasa Colima machete but it doesn't sing. short, thin, fast and the s-curve blade makes it a serrated pocket Kukri. Cuts leaves and bush right out of the way, even light stuff, brambles grass too if you're snappy. Won't slip out of your hand a bit. The serrations make up for lack of length. Won't stick the leather car seat either because it's flat inside the pocket and won't freak anyone. It's easy opening, better than clip point I got. Prefer it to clip point....usually. Saws green wood to 3/4 in with difficulty when pruning. Just don't let the blade swing even lightly on a finger or it will draw blood. I did it twice. Love that aus8 steel. Thumb post seems set a bit awkward to flip open without fear.
