Cold Steel Medium Vaquero Voyager
Cold Steel Knives are awesome. Their Voyager series has been a KnifeCenter favorite for over a decade and their Vaquero style blades are also favorites. I, personally, have carried a Vaquero Grande (no longer available) for years in my cars, right by my left hand in case I should ever need it and it is one of the most effective weapons you can have. They have since integrated the vaquero style blades into the Voyager series and we feel this makes a lot of sense. They are made the same and it makes the selection more straight forward. We’ve finally started getting them in! This is the medium Voyager with the non-serrated vaquero style recurved blade. It’s a great knife. The “medium” size is actually the smallest of the Voyager series and this one sports a 3″ blade. The finish is now a stone washed one which is not polished but is slightly mottled looking. It works well for this folder. The lockback is one of the strongest locking systems you will find. The “recurve” on this small knife is less pronounced than you will find on the larger knives. This is a small to medium sized folding pocket knife that would be great for a backup but there is a lot of steel on that blade so it can do some serious work. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the full description from Cold Steel Knives:
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.
