Ok so I got the smaller folder (Cold Steel Voyager medium) in a group of items from Cold Steel for evaluation. 1st I'm not a folder fan but as you see I turned around and ordered the Voyager large. The medium has a 3 inch blade, the large has a 4 inch blade but it looks massive next to the medium. They are both incredibly strong. Strong to the point of rediculous. Both sharp as razors. You could literally shave with either one, not that I would but you could. But when I say strong I mean the knife open and loaded down with over 400 lbs and the knife does not break. Not only that but it continues to function 100 %. The medium by virtue of its smaller size will hold less weight but ounce for ounce pretty amazing. These knives FAR EXCEED the quality of knives costing hundreds of dollars more. Check out Cold Steel before you go spending a ton of money on a "good" knife. These run $35-$45 range on the medium and $55-$70 on the Large depending on where you buy them. The best deals I found were on Amazon.
