      This knife is spectacularly built! The rubberized handle makes it so comfortable to hold.
      The blade is so easy to make come out and the knife is sharp straight out of the box!
      The knife comes with an awesome holster that is also well built for the price of these knives they are surprisingly sturdy feeling.
      I had doubts but man does the knife look and feel stunning!
      I have already had to use the Serrated edge and I can tell I will be using it a lot!
      This knife packs a punch right out of the box! And not to mention the look and feel of the box that it comes in is quite nice!

      Ravencrest Thank You for delivering on your promise of a affordable tactical knife!!!!

      AWESOME!! I Just Received My John Hobbs Memorial OTF Knife Today 5/26/2017. I Could Feel The Difference, Before I Even Opened Up The Box. The Weight, The Finish, The Solid Blade, No Wiggle. The Power Of The Blade Coming Out. The State Of Wisconsin In 2016, Passed AB 142 Knife Law Preemption, Making These Types Of Knifes Legal To Own, And Legal To Carry. I Purchase A Lightning, Then A Titan. They Worked OK. I Looked At Reviews Of OTF Knives. Microtech, And Others, Just This Last Week. I Came Upon Ravencrest Tactical, And I Was Amazed At The Products, The Website, The Videos. A John Hobbs Memorial Knife Was Listed. Spear Point. Being In Honor Of Our Hero’s. This 67 yr Old Vietnam Veteran, Did Not Have To Think Very Long Before I Placed My Order. My First Order From This Company. I Will Be A Steady Customer. (BRAVO) To The Fine Folks At Ravencrest Tactical, For EXCELLENT OTF Knifes. THANK YOU!!!

      I purchased this knife after being disappointed time and time agin by different OTF knives. I am a Law Enforcement Officer with the National Park Service and need a tool that I can rely on no matter what. This knife has performed flawlessly even in terrible conditions. I have used and abused this knife not only in the academy but in the field as well. From cutting seat belts to cutting up tires to being used to pick up sticks out of a fire, this knife has stood up to the test. I can open and close this knife just as I did the moment I took it out of the box and it works as good as new. I would highly recommend any product from this company and I will continue to refer people to their products.

      Be safe out there.

      I’ve been an avid knife collector as long as I can remember when I came across this model on RCT’s website, I knew I had to get one. Wow…immediately upon opening the box I was so impressed with the quality. When you hold it and inspect it, there’s no doubt about it–it’s just awesome. It’s significantly heavier than other brands that I have but I know that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This is a real tool and like the videos you see on their site, is excellent for EDC and will more than stand up to the rigors of more extreme use. RCT’s customer service is also excellent, as they easily resolved a question I had with a replacement blade. This has become my favorite knife to carry and I will definitely be looking for others in the future. Thanks RavenCrest Tactical, you guys make excellent knives and wanted to say keep up the great work!

      This is my second OTF and it’s a solid made knife and made in Arizona, keep it in the USA. I also think it’s a great deal how RCT gives 50% of the sale to the Hobbs Memorial. I’m very impressed with RCT.
