    I actually prefer "square" thicker handles over thin ones, so I like the new Voyagers. I'm not arguing or claiming my opinion is better, of course. I don't want a redesign, I'd rather see new original models.

    X2 is a beauty

    a joy to carry, a joy to look at

    [​IMG]

    fits the hand like a glove

    and has a 6" blade, not like the bigger XL Voyagers from today. I really dig that extra 1/2 inch, not only for aesthetics

    [​IMG]

    Lock is indeed strong enough. Only drawback?

    To me, the non-reversible pocket clip.
    That and the Desperado are the ones I'd really like to see come back!

    Would like to see an even larger version of the Kudu/Eland.

    How about an XXL Espada with a 9 1/2" long x 1/4" thick blade. Hell, why not? The XL isn't very practical anyway, so why not up the ante. The looks you'd get when you whipped it out, would be worth the price of admission.

    I'd like CS to bring out a new improved Talwar but with a thicker convex grind blade out of whatever steel is tough but cheap . Damn the weight -make her heavy duty . And no wedge cut out at spine . Just a beast that could chop thru hardwood or bone with no blade damage . Kind of a folding Trailmaster mated to a Talwar . Keep that price point DOWN ! Use cheap but strong materials . NO fancy coatings or colors . Make an XL with 5.5 " blade and an XXL as big as you can that still WORKS !

    Name it the "Special Edition DocJD Survival Trailmaster Talwar" ! You're welcome Lynn . Can't hardly wait for the proof video .

    Also issue an actually colossal sized knife if you're gonna use that name - you should build as big or bigger than the biggest Espada . THEN the name would not be a joke ! Rename the 4" the "Mini-Me Teeny Colossus "

    And as long as we're dreaming -I've always wanted an XXL Raj with a thick convex chopping blade and massive Triad Lock . Sigh ...ah, well , more likely we'll see a sub 3" Colossus .:barf:

    A folding machete/chopper. People are already humping or packing folding (Silky) saws. Think Rajah x 3-4 sort of thing.

    6" Lucky with dual triad locks and waveable thumb plates like the Talwar. Maybe one plain, one serrated?

    A bigger ak-47 would be awesome, to bridge the gap between the standard size and the fixed blade field knife. Between 5"-6" maybe.

    You guys are onto something great there! That would be a camp gear game changer, right at home in a pack next to the folding saw. This might be a great option for those pilot survival kits too, they're always looking for ways to save space while not sacrificing essential tools.

    I like DocJD's ideas and like him, I fear CS is downsizing their knives. I wish the CS moderator would weigh in and assure us that CS will be offering some new XL folders in 2017. It would definitely give us XL folder lovers something to look forward to.

    Yup.
    5.5" Colossus and Black Talon, I just made those two exact recommendations in the 2017 wishlist thread.
    (Ok I said 5" Colossus, I don't think it needs to be quite so bulky, the handle would already be enormous at 5".)
