Great looking self defense knife, and keeps people away from me when wearing it on my belt which is great, it was not sharp when I bought it, so I had to sharpen it.

I call it a letter opener utility knife. Feels great, easy to open and looks great.

Nice big knife. Very sturdy with out being to bulky. Sheath leaves something to be desired, but for the price good value.

Great knife fit my hand very well holds an edge very well light weight and very durable I have been using it now a couple of weeks no complants at all I have recommended this knife to several people

Looks good, feels good..have not used yet. I feel it will preforn as intended.

Very sharp, cuts anything, metal banding, rope, all things freight wise. Assisted opening is perfect when your holding something with the other hand and can't let go! I use it at least 3-4 times a day, best everyday carry knife I have every had, I highly recommend!!!

I have been carrying CS knives for the last 15 years. Voyager is my favorite. This is to replace one that came up missing. I am naked without one. CS products have the beef. There is enough steel in these blades that I feel I can trust them. You should never carry a tool you don't trust.
