Cerakote Mini RCT-1 Raven Tactical OTF Knife (Graphite Black)


Mini RCT-1 Raven double action out the front knife (DA – OTF knife).

The Mini RCT-1 Raven double action OTF (out the front) knife has become a staple for many in their “every day carry” arsenal. Small and sleek enough to go with you all day, but large enough to conqueror just about any task you throw at it.

Like all RavenCrest Tactical knives, the Mini RCT-1 Raven is built for hard use. Each Mini Raven comes standard with a 2.75-inch 440c blade that is meticulously hand sharpened to a razor's edge ready to cut right out of the box. The ergonomic handles on the Mini are made of high-quality Zinc Alloy that is individually hand coated with Cerakote which gives them maximum hardness and corrosion resistance. The button placement along the spine of the handle allows for lighting fast ambidextrous openings right from the operators pocket. The Mini Raven also allows for right and left-hand users to pocket carry with its stainless steel reversible pocket clip. If that wasn’t enough the Mini Raven OTF knife also comes equipped with a “battle tested” glass breaker pommel.

The inner workings of the Mini RCT-1 Raven don’t disappoint. “Under the hood” you will find all stainless steel precision parts and our proprietary coated high-performance spring. The Mini RCT-1 Raven comes with our famous lifetime warranty giving you confidence and peace of mind. This is the perfect balance of utility, convenience, and customization. Now, there's never an excuse to be without a knife!

All RavenCrest Tactical OTF knives are extremely safe to operate and use. RavenCrest Tactical OTF knives come with a built-in safety that will not allow the blade to fully deploy if anything is obstructing its path. Once in “safety mode” the blade will need to be reset by pulling the blade all the way into its locking position making it fully functional again.

The Mini RCT-1 Raven OTF Knife is available for full customization.

What is Cerakote? Cerakote is not a paint. Cerakote is a Polymer-Ceramic coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers, and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.

      I had one. Spear point, partially serrated. Operative word “had”. I loved that little knife. I lost my Infidel at work. $300, gone. Poof. Pissed? Yep. But…since I was now knife shopping I came across these guys two years ago at a conference. Finger ****ed one for a while then bought one. The mini was considerably smaller than my Infidel but the action was stronger. Loved that little knife. Was perfect for EDC. I also carried it for work but think I’m going to order a full sized raven for work.
      As for the “had” comment…traveled to St. Maarten. Checked a bag. Put mini in checked bag. Mini didn’t make it to the hotel. Pissed? Yeah, you could say that. But, it gets me shopping again. Notice the first place I came to shop. (Prolly the last place too. Products and staff are top notch)

      I absolutely love this knife, this is my EDC for work. I’m a wildland Firefighter in Florida, so it’s nice to have a good quality knife that is reliable and durable. The cerakote finish definitely stands up to the abuse of my day to day work. And with the addition of the Black Oxide – Mini RCT-1 Raven Tanto Serrated Blade it really gets the job done. Thank you RCT for you quality and precision on another really sweet knife.

      I have had a full size titan for about a year, so I decided to try the mini. At half a pound the titan can be heavy, so I figured I would give myself some options. I do like the size of the mini, and it opens with authority. However when I first got it I was having trouble with opening it. About every 5th time I opened the knife , it would jam and not deploy. I took it apart and cleaned it but continued to have the same problem. I continued to work on it, and after taking some burs off the edge of the thumb switch it seems to be working fine now. It took about a month but I haven’t had any problems lately, and I have gotten to where I trust it now.

      Great knife. Got for a great deal and is better than other knives I have bought for more money. It never leaves my pocket. It lives up to the advertising of Tank tough!!

      This is a great knife. I first heard about this company on YouTube. I found out they were local to me and decided to check them out. I fell in love with the mini. I carry it everyday. Having a quality OTF is very efficient and fun to carry everyday. After about a month of carrying my knife I went to the store to ask a question about getting a new firing button, nothing was wrong with mine I just preferred a black one. They said no problem and I had a new one in about 5 minutes. Also when a I got it back the gentleman let me know that he had changed all the hardware to black for me, that way everything would match. That is excellent customer service. Oh and did I mention all of this cost me not a dime. Do yourself a favor if you live in Arizona and make the trip to Mesa to visit the awesome staff.

      I was at first hesitate at spending the money for this knife but glad I spent the money. Deploys every time, very sharp and fits perfect under my duty belt (in my pocket) for quick deployment. The only negative thing I have to say about the knife is that at first the push button is hard to push so it cause the knife not to deploy and come off track however that was user error not a knife error. My solution was worked the push button a bunch of times for muscle memory and helped loosen it up a little.
      In closing Great Knife I am going to buy more after the holidays.

      First let me say, as an owner of a family run business I always look to support other small business owners anytime I can! I firmly believe that the time and effort shows in their products! I have been looking for a smaller knife everyday carry OTF knife for a while now, I was a little worried with the smaller design that it would feel cheap but I was absolutely wrong. This is a high quality knife that feels great in the hand. Thanks Raven Crest for making a great product and I look forward to ordering more in the future.
