Due to their light weight and convenience, Zytel handled lockbacks have gained enormous popularity over heavier, traditional lockbacks with their metal bolsters and wooden scale handles. Cold Steel’s Voyager Series is the new generation of these ultra-light knives and are sure to be the standard by which others are judged for years to come! The Voyager Series are made from the same premium stainless steel that goes into our famous Tanto. They feature precision milled and hand fitted parts with extra stiff springs. This provides a lock that is safer and stronger than most traditional folders. The blades are extremely wide and ground thin at the edge for tremendous shearing potential. This thin edge allows us to hone the blade to astounding sharpness. Plus, the cutting surface is continuously curved along its entire length for the most efficient possible slicing action. Because of the high carbon content in the stainless steel, you’ll find that the sharpness really lasts a surprisingly long time. If you like serrations, you’ll really appreciate Cold Steel’s exclusive pattern. It offers the aggressive ripping action of serrated teeth, but with a twist. Their design features groups of very small teeth separated by wide, shallow arcs. This results in the benefits of both a plain and a serrated edge, so that the knife still cuts smoothly through almost any material. The Voyager Series offers all the advantages of the latest in lockback construction technology including lightening-quick one-handed opening, light weight and strength, yet without the necessity for unsightly humps or holes in the blade. The result is an appealing look with very modern styling. Every detail has been designed for maximum performance from the reinforced pivot pin and integral clip, to the grooved thumb shelf on the back of the knife for extra traction. Plus, the handle offers a superbly comfortable non-slip grip and houses the blade in a sleek, super-light package that can be carried all day without effort. As tools, these lightweight, super sharp knives are appropriate in almost any environment from hunting and camping, to hiking and general utility chores. They can also readily fill specialty functions such as a boat or river knife, a chute knife or demanding police/survival/rescue applications.
