Cold Steel Thompson Voyager Folding Knife | CTS-XHP Stainless Steel, CS29UXV
Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson’s passion for knife-training is well known by all of his customers. A lifelong Martial Artist who still trains martial arts at least 16 hours a week, he has dedicated his life to the pursuit of knowledge pertaining to the combative application of the blade.
From his lectures and demonstrations at the Soldier of Fortune conventions and the Gunsite Academy Edged Weapons Symposiums of the 80’s and 90’s, to his present-day training of members of our nation’s military and law enforcement - he has shared his knowledge and experience with some of our nation's most honored and respected tactical experts, and the most common question that they ask, time and time again is "Mr Thompson, what knife do YOU carry?"
As the designer of many of Cold Steel's most memorable blades and the lead designer of their in-house R&D department, Lynn often switches out between different knives. But one blade has remained a constant favourite of his ever since its initial development over 20 years ago – the Vaquero! With its long, wide undulating blade shape, the Thompson Voyager with its Vaquero style blade has the broad belly and sweeping curves of a kukri, but also the prominent piercing tip of a dagger.
Fully serrated, with Cold Steel's signature "grip n’ rip" serration pattern for shearing through tough, fibrous material, the Vaquero is not only a great choice when working with thick rope or abrasive mediums, but a devastatingly effective self-defence tool. This signature edition Thompson Voyager is strictly limited to 2000 pieces. Each one is numbered, with a laser-engraved signature on the blade.
Featuring the pioneering Tri-Ad lock for added strength, an expertly heat treated American CTS-XHP powdered steel blade, chosen for its ability to take and hold an incredibly fine edge, and a DLC (Diamond-Like) coated for superior scratch resistance, the Signature Edition Thompson Voyager is sure to be a proud addition to your collection!

Quality folder EDCBy: Rog on 27 June 2019Bigger than an average pocket knife I wasn't sure of its size at first, but after handling practice it turned out to be smooth opening and with that perfect closing click. The knife is with me everywhere I go. Large but light, the serrated Vasquero blade is extremely sharp and functional e.g. easy cuts open heavy duty items, rope and rubber. Handle design is grippy and a great feature allowing the knife to be easily grabbed from pocket without digging around to find it. But also very secure to hold. Comes with a belt clip and a spare in box. Box is also signed by Lynn. I would rather put this knife to use than have it on display.
