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.

These were ordered for the Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Association (NavyEODA) as logo gear for the Association Members. First displayed at the Annual EOD Round-Up in Virginia Beach. Everyone liked them, we will be ordering more.

I purchased a couple of these knives to keep in my vehicles in case I ever had to cut off a seat belt or smash out a window. In other words, I hope to never need to use them. The serrated blade and the metal bashing tip should do the job

Great knife,light but very strong. I really like the easy one handed open and closeing. And as always from Knife Depot extremely SHARP!!!

Got this knife for a gift for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. Looks great and works great too!

The knife fits in my hand very well and the texture on the scales allows for excellent gripping without being irritating. I like the ability to change what side the clip is on. The new Tri-Ad locking mechanism is fantastic and holds the blade tight with no looseness. The finish is very nice and durable. The knife came with an edge that was already to go and could shave the hair off my arm.
