Classics never go out of style.
The RCT-1 Raven Double Action Out The Front Knife features a 440c Stainless Steel blade with a two tone matte black finish. The blade can be quickly deployed with the ambidextrous sliding button. Pushing forward on the button deploys the blade out the front of the handle and pressing backwards on the button retracts the blade back into the handle where it is ready again to be deployed at a moments notice.
Details that matter.
The handle is patterned for non-slip handling in any environment. The metal pocket clip is reversible and can be carried in the button back or button front positions. When clipped into the pocket it has a nice low profile “ride”. The end of the knife features a glass breaker pommel designed to shatter glass or break anything else you might need to in case of an emergency.
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.
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.
Had one and gave it to my daughters boyfriend due to my self being a disabled Combat vet of OEF and OIF and him just graduating USMC boot camp I knew he would need a good solid pocket knife that would last and not fail. I loved it as does he now. Very solid, heavy, never missed fired or failed on me for over a year. I do believe they are overprice and should drop at least by $30 or so but you can pick up one on sale/S&D for cheeper which you won’t regret. So now I am on here looking for another one to replace mine lol.
Outstanding knife- Well made, high quality, durable and lethally sharp out of the box. Opens with a lot of authority and feels as stable as s fixed blade when opened. I was also impressed with the fact they included an alternate color belt clip. Great purchase- Highly recommended.
First thing that impressed me about this knife was the weight–if you drop it watch your toes. Right out of the box this thing is sticky sharp and I could easily shave arm hairs with it. Girl thumbs have a pretty hard time deploying these which may be a good thing if your relationship is on the rocks. Be careful oiling these because it tends to attract dirt, pocket lint, and grime which will suppress the action. They run fine unlubed and so should you. Six screws and it comes apart super easy and you can scrape out blood or mayonnaise or whatever, we won’t ask. Carried it for a decent while in extremely sandy conditions were it worked surprisingly well. The easiness of opening and closing will make opening all those Amazon shipments like, 40 times faster. Fantastic knife, well worth it, the Benchmade Infidel can suck it.

This knife is just built like a tank. It’s so easy to service and work on. The customer service is great and I get answers to questions from their support team quickly. I like to tinker with stuff so I took the whole thing apart and got the inside to polished to a mirror finish. It’s very smooth working and it especially works better with the polishing work that I did. I very lightly oil it with dry lubricant that I use for my rifles and it works great. The switching mechanism is very smooth and positive. The next upgrade i’ll do with this unit is to buy a D2 blade for it. I would highly recommend this OTF knife.

TOOK IN A JUST RECEIVED NEW OTF THAT WAS DEFECTIVE. FOLKS AT THE STORE WERE OUSTANDING; EVEN INVITED ME INTO THE ASSEMBLY ROOM AND HAD ME PICK OUT AN UPGRADE FROM MY ORIGINAL PURCHASE AND EVEN CUSTOMIZED IT AT NO EXTRA CHARGE! FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE. HAVE SHOWN MY KNIFE TO OTHERS AND EVEN TOLD THEM ABOUT THE MILITARY/FIRST RESPONDERS GENEROUS DISCOUNT.

This knife is really well built, has a great feel, and is a pleasure to carry. It also looks cool. I’ll be buying more after the world doesn’t end from social upheaval and pandemics.
Merry Christmas 2022 to ME! I have absolutely zero complaints about this purchase. As a matter of fact, I have showed it to just about everyone I know, and in doing so, made another sale for Ravencrest Tactical! This knife is heavy, robust, big boned, thick….whatever other adjectives you choose to describe the weight of this beast. The action is awesome. I swear it begs to be opened and closed like a fidget toy…. The switch has been tough for some of my lightweight counterparts, but NOBODY is allowed to two-thumb it! Immediate disqualification and possible disownment. I was happy to see just how easy it is to care for, maintain, and service these knives. Ravencrest offers kits at a super affordable price with everything needed, and if you really mess up, you can just replace the blade. I’m happy to support small business, and I would recommend anyone reading this review to do the same.
