Cold Steel Espada
Along with the Voyager, the Cold Steel Espada is a very common blade to see at our knife seminars. There are two major types, each in 3 sizes. You have the cheaper G10 handle and the more expensive (about 2x more) polished ones. The polished Cold Steel Espadas are very pretty with a nice shiny blade. While the cheaper ones (as shown) has a more grayish blade and G10 handle. Other than some looks and price they are pretty similar.
Cold Steel Espada come in 3 main sizes, Medium, Large and Extra Large. The medium does not have the “wave” feature on its blade while the other two do. The XL is just gigantic and its why it earns its name “Espada (sword)”. I went with the large because its legal in most of Texas (boo San Antonio). It has a very similar feel to my Voyager so handing it was very simple and enjoyable. You can tell just buy looking at it that its more expensive than the Voyager. I manly bought it for its pocket wave feature on the blade which the Voyager does not have.
