    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. The 3.9″ Tanto blade comes standard with an aggressive partially serrated edge giving you tearing and cutting power making it a great all purpose blade. The Tanto blade is exceptional at both piercing and slicing due to its angular shape and tapered spine which creates a strong point. 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 RCT OTF Knives have a safety feature that will not allow the blade to fully deploy if anything is obstructing it’s path. The blade will then need to be reset by pulling the blade all the way into its locking position making it again fully functional.

    1. Rated 4 out of 5


      This is the second high quality OTF knife I have purchased. The other is a Bench Mark Pagan. The Pagan blade locks up better but the Raven has better blade action. For what I payed for the Raven it’s a much better deal.

      Very nice knife. Opens and close perfectly every time. Would like if the blade kept its edge longer. Other then that, you feel quality when holding it, heavy and good grip

    3. Rated 5 out of 5


      This knife is just to hard to praise in words, you really need to see and feel it for yourself. The cerakote finish looks awesome and can definitely stand the abuse. When you hold this knife you can feel the quality, and when you finally push forward on the slide button and the blade shoots out you know you’ve made the right choice. The quality you get for the price is amazing. And the RCT team is so helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have. I’ve definitely found my favorite knife company, and look forward to do more business in the future.

      I utilize my knife as a tool in my law enforcement job daily. Recently, I car went into a river with the driver stuck inside and I utilized the glass breaker on the knife. Another officer took several asp stikes to the window which only took me one strike to break. The salt water messed up the opening action but some WD40 seemed to cured this problem.

      I just received my first knife from Raven Crest. A Titan OTF. I am extremely please with the purchase. The knife is solid as a rock, and works flawlessly. I was so impressed with the quality of the product that I decided to join the knife club so I can enjoy this level of excitement every month! I cannot wait to receive my first shipment. Nice work Raven Crest.

      This is my first OTF knife and easily the best knife I’ve ever owned. I’ve had many knives over the years, some issued by the military and others I’ve purchased and none come close to the quality of my RCT-1. I really like that it is easily disassembled for cleaning or changing blades when I want. Thanks for building me a great knife RavenCrest !!!

      When I unboxed my first off knife ever and deployed it for the first time it felt so good that i almost cried. After only having it 10 days the cerakote finish was chipping on the front back and end of the knife. I contacted ravencrest and 2 hours later a prepaid shipping lable was sent to me and their response was very nicely worded that they would take care of my problem. I will be getting the knife back tomorrow. These people really do stand behind their products. I ordered a different blade today just so I can change them at will. I am looking forward to having A KNIFE FOR LIFE. THANKS RAVENCREST

      This knife is a beast. Hefty blade and the whole knife has some weight to it, but if feels perfect in the hand. A little bulky for light work. This is perfect for camping or hunting. Don’t forget the lifetime warranty, as long as you have the pieces its under warranty. Check out ravenpac too. A new suprise knife delivered every month.
