but it's huge when you whip it out.
Picked this up yesterday. This is the 5" version, they make a 6"(illegal for carry). I couldn't believe how small the clip is. The way it is shaped it rides very well, no sharp edges on the handle. I don't know why I waited so long to buy one.

Ok, now I'm expecting the "that's what she said" jokes.

Make and model?
The Cold Steel Voyager with 5" clip point. They also make it with a tanto point and serrated and half serrated. Check out the Vaquero model.

They use the same size clip on all the Voyager series. That one shown is the Extra Large. I have the large and medium Voyager's. I carry the medium as my EDC knife along with a VSAK Huntsman. Is yours a Japan or China/Tiawan blade? For a production knife they hold an edge, and when dull sharpen up fast. Alot of folks talk down the Cold Steel knives, an they may have a point, but I've found out after carrying them for several years that they work, and work when you need them, and are hard as he!! to damage! I used an SRK over in Iraq for two years, an really abused it. Never could damage it, and it looks like its been used for about ten years. For a fixed blade knife its the one I grab everytime.

Leighton, it is a Japan made model. I remember when Cold Steel dealers had the videos of what they were capable of. They took the tanto fixed blade and put it in a vice some guy leaned on it and it bent back into shape by itself, he couldn't break it. The shovel they made went through a cinder block(both sides) and then he turned around and threw it like a hatchet at a target, and it stuck. They also had a thick rope just hanging and they had a number of folders and fixed blades that cut through them without any pressure. When my brother went in to the Marines, I bought him the tanto fixed blade 6" and he said out in the field he cut through a huge log to make firewood no one elses knife could. He still has it being out 8 yrs now. Not sure about the current production but the oldies do work. Nice knives, the SRK is a perfect for everything knife. I'm trying to find the San Mai R1, my friend has one and he wants $300 for it. James
