Cold Steel Perfection
I have been the proud owner of over probably thirty Cold Steel products over the years including the original voyager series which had the plastic pocket clips. I have seen things come and go over the years, some good, some bad but this knife series culminates a beautiful integration of usefulness, simplicity and function. I recently bought a med. voyager tanto as EDC. Great little knife, kinda chubby, very tough but the pocket clip and handle scales ripped out my pants pocket and it took a long time to beak in the lock. So I read the reviews on this knife which highly intrigued me. I had to have one. I purchased the plain spear point, since I am not a fan of the serrated edge they offer. When received, as all the previous reviewers stated, it is an impressive blade. The scales are clean, contours perfect in the hand and then you open it. The blade was impressive and hair shaving sharp. Unlike the other Voyagers, the lock was not stiff nor sticky. The pocket clip isn't big and it doesn't rip your pants due to the smoothness of the thin aluminum scales and it rides cleanly in the pocket. I use and work my knives everyday. It is a tool that I use in many situations. I have to say that Cold Steel has perfected the EDC. If you want a light weight, strong, sharp, large folder that will not break, look no further. Its also aesthetically pleasing to the eyes as well!
