    Awesome knife. I've enjoyed mine for quite awhile now. I can't even remember some of the crazy shit I've cut with this, it's just a beast. Cold Steel makes some really nice pieces.

    For carrying though, If you still want the Vaquero style, go for the regular Vaquero, it's alot more practical.

    But nothing tops the Vaquero Grande. :bigthumb:

    thanks for the info. :bigthumb:

    i intend to carry it and messed with both of them. i like the grande better for some reason. i scared the piss out of the poor bastard standing next to me when i flicked it open. very light and maneuvarable for such a long blade.

    oh, and from looking at the blade, i'm guessing its a pain in the ass to sharpen. do you do it yourself or send it off to be done professionally?

    I took it to a shop in the mall. They charged me $6.00, but it was the most incredibly sharp edge. It was definitely worth it. Vaquero sharpens VERY well with the right guy doing the job.
