I am a country boy so I grew up with (and still carry) two pocket knives. One of them is a work knife that I use for all the little tasks that come up daily. The other is an extra large voyager (these two knives could be twins they're nearly exactly alike, so close that I feel what is written about one fits the other also), The Rajahs twin, and it was 50/50 toss up when I bought the voyager. I've had it quite a few yrs. and except not being as bright as it once was, it is in pristine condition. I've only had to sharpen it twice (over the yrs). and I probably did that more out of habit than necessity. These two hold edges nearly forever. I have also been able to keep it razor sharp, the way it came out of the box. In fact it came out so sharp that after looking it over, checking the function and ability to open left-handed I finally noticed that blood was everywhere and didn't even realize I had cut to the bone, the forefinger knuckle on my right hand. Course if you're an edged weapons man (as I have been since my first Case knife) your hands are gonna have scars all over. I have never owned a knife this long, because usually, by now they are wore out. Not these two. If you buy a Cold Steel blade, unless you intentionally try to destroy it, be ready to have a lifelong, dependable companion.
