Just a traditional utility knife made by the Penan tribe in Borneo.

Great, now because of you 2 I will be on the lookout for a voyager. Love to get me a different platform-fun-thrasher knife like that.

Do you or John_B know which is better... the old Voyager or the new ones?
Find old med voyager. I gave mine to my brother when he deployed to the sandbox and he lost it.

This thread makes me want to buy some BRAND NEW beater knives. :)

I got a few on order now with Blade HQ.
Cold Steel Air Lite (resembles the Benchmade Bugout and a whole lot cheaper)
Cold Steel Demko AD-10 (huge beast of a beater)
Cold Steel Working Man Lime Green (this has got beater written all over it)
Kershaw Suffle II Tan (because I can afford it)

All great beaters! Might want to add the Cold Steel Tuff Lite to your list if you don't have one. It's my go-to beater and I love it!

I prefer beaters that are less expensive and have "lesser" steels that are easy to sharpen, fold rather than chip and are generally more forgiving of abuse.
These include good ol' AUS 8, 4116, 440, 420 from Buck and, of course, carbon steels like 1095 and it's cousins. It seems that in fixed blade knives the Becker range is my go-to while in folders it seems like more and more Cold Steel does it for me - especially in the user/beater value area. I really, really like my AD-10 and while it is way more than capable for any beating I would ever care to give it, the beater duty goes to the Voyagers, Pro Lite and Bush Ranger Light as well as a few Ontario RAT-1 knives. The only reason why a CS Working man isn't on my list is because I don't have one ... yet. ;)

What is the 3rd one down with the wave?
it's my "FrankenRat" a blade by my design, mated to a Rat1 handle with custom scales from one of this forums members.
It was supposed to have a thumb disk that will be used as a wave also but the material was too hard to work with and we went for a wave only. I used this knife extensively for work, excellent blade for quick woodwork. M390 on 62HRC, chisel grind.
let me know if you're interested, I'll DM you the link to his scales, they are outstanding !
