This is a thick slab of D2 steel dressed in classic drop point form. The Vox Rold is a beautiful, heavy duty medium sized fixed blade ready for tactical, outdoor, and camp knife POUs. My testing focused on the Rold's wilderness capabilities. It performed well in splitting, whittling, and chopping exercises in a high altitude, snowy environment. The blade shape is perfection: a strong tip, full flat grind, nice gradual relief edge, topside traction miling, good belly, and a forward finger choil for choking. It will slash, stab, and split well. The black G10 handle is comfortable and elegant with a double taper. The scales are non-removable but the handle features large rivet tubes, designer Jesper Voxnaes' trademark in some of his larger blades. These lighten the handle, look good, and allow easy lanyard attachment. Balance is excellent as is the overall feel of the Rold. For a 6 1/8" blade, the weight is substantial at about 14.8 ounces but again this is a stout blade. For weight comparisons several other stainless steel fixed blade options in the same category (more or less) are shown. The bead blasted D2 steel arrives extremely sharp in this Chinese produced Boker Plus blade It shows impressive edge holding after substantial woodwork; it might be a little tough to sharpen and rust with neglect but I didn't see any of those problems. The Kydex sheath is superb albeit somewhat heavier than plastic varieties. It locks the Rold extremely tight, has a drain hole, and retains no water. The include Tek-Lok in this version adds about 2 ounces. Value is excellent and you're getting basically a production version of a Jesper V. custom knife. Overall this is a tough, sharp, versatlle, and good looking mid-sized blade from Boker. Who says awesome knives don't come from Europe?/////////////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 9 out of 10//////////////////////////// In March 2012, the Rold was just $94 at www.notjustknives.com.
