The Voyagerfolders are, ounce for ounce, far stronger than 99% of our competitor¹s folders. And this is a fact, not an idle boast. Each knife features laser cut and hand fitted 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 in each Voyageralso put the competition to shame, as they are laser cut from our famous Japanese AUS 8A Stainless and precision ground to a thin edge for maximum shearing potential. This thin edge also allows us to hone the blades to astounding sharpness. Plus, the cutting surface is continuously curved along its entire length for the most efficient and effective slicing action possible. Additionally, because of their perfect heat treatment and the high carbon content in the center layer of Japanese AUS 8A Stainless IIIyou¹ll find the sharpness really lasts a surprisingly long time.

First bend the clip out a bit so it doesn't chafe your pants so hard. Next, remove the handle and grind down a generous area around the clip so that where your pants will rub the handle when taking it in and out of your pocket will be smooth. I used a bench grinder, a Dremmel or the like would also work fine. Using a flat file would be quite difficult. Attached is a picture of what I did, it helped reduce wear on my pants quite a bit.
A few things to consider with this monstrosity:
1. It's huge. Even though it very well might be legal where you live, every person who has seen it has asked "is that thing legal". Legality aside, I'm not sure I could pull this off as an EDC. If you have huge pockets and nothing else in them maybe. For me the clip rides a little lower than I'd like so it sticks out a bit too.
2. Wicked sharp OTB. The flat grind vs hollow grind is a huge plus too if you resharpen your own knives. The blade material is also impressive: Japanese AUS-8A Stainless Steel with a stone-washed finish. It feels like a quality knife that will last.
3. Handling- the handle shape, grip and texture make this knife fairly manageable and easy to retain a grip on.
4. Speed and ease of use- This is where I have mixed feelings. I'm spoiled by Kershaw assisted opening knives. And for whatever reason, I find this knife somewhat difficult to open. Because of its size, you need to get your hand high up to use the thumb stub to "flick it open". And when I say flick, I mean like a whole arm snap. And even then it sometimes doesn't fully open for me. Maybe it needs to break in, maybe I need practice or maybe I need to adjust the retention screw. But I wouldn't say it's a fast knife overall in that regard. I will say this though, not having much experience with the Triad lock, it feels solid.
5. Value- This is where this pocket sword earns it stars. For a mere $50, you get a foldable, bad @ss blade that will last a lifetime. It's also lighter than you would expect given its girth. For the money, there isn't much this knife can't do.
If you're done drooling over this fine piece of hardware, I'd suggest hitting the Add to Cart. You won't be let down.
This thing is huge! Solid handle, solid lock, solid construction. The blade came wicked sharp, which was nice not to have to sharpen a new knife again. The knife holds and balances really well when opened. I don't think that you will lose your grip on this baby. Very happy with the purchase, good price too.
*The clip is tight at first. I bent mine out a little with pliers and it has been perfect.
*Really have to depress the Lock Release all the way, before the knife will shut.....could be pro or con, depending you.
The blade is ok, comes very sharp but I honestly like old fashioned carbon steels more and the grind is good and sharp out of the box and held well but could be better.... On the other hand it's ok and buying a knife of this size and quality from anyone but cold steel would be beyond my means.
Blade is a thick slab of steel, but the knife moves well in the hand and doesn't feel unduly heavy though it DOES look large in the hand so I would advise using common sense on where to display it. All in all a nice elegant feeling knife that's p to pretty much any cutting task I need it for. I use it Mainly for food prep and garden tasks.
The handle has a cross shaped pattern that affords a very good grip, only issue is that the strong pocket clp drives your pants material into this surface and causes wear.... An easy fix is to fill the bit under the clip with epoxy and sand it smooth. Saw it online and it works.
UPDATE: STILL GOOD! Strong lock and keen edge still going strong- I mainly use it for chopping vegi's but have taken down small trees/big bushes with it.... looks like it should last a long time...Great value for money
