What an amazing knife, extremely light weight and well designed. From the beautiful curved tanto blade, tire tread aluminum handle, to the waved clip and window breaker. You can feel the quality and precision with every press and pull of the button. And it feels lighter weight than my RCT Mini’s. Definitely my new EDC knife, and a must have for any OTF knife enthusiast. By far my favorite RCT OTF knife out of the four I have, thank you RavenCrest.
I have bought 3 knives from RavenCrest Tactical and I love them they are the only knives I carry! I gave two as gifts and keep one at my side at all times! Great product! Great knives! Great company!!!
The blade is phenomenal, came in great condition. Sharp enough to shave out of the box. Lightweight and easy to deploy, harder to un-deploy than to deploy, but everything else is near perfection.
This knife is a “Make Ready” model. “Make Ready” models take an extra 5-7 days to receive because of their special customization requirements.
The Zhànshì (Warrior) OTF Knife is a full size fully automatic double action OTF (out the front) Knife that comes standard with CNC aviation aluminum handles. The all CNC construction of the Zhànshì makes for a precision fit & finish not only on the exterior of the knife but also on the inside operating components as well. Aviation aluminum is strong, lightweight and elegant in appearance and feel.
When it comes to a hard use tool like the Zhànshì (Warrior), ergonomics are everything. The Zhànshì’s handle shape strikes the perfect balance of form and function becoming an extension of the operator when in use. The Zhànshì (Warrior) fits comfortably in forward, reverse, and scythe grips. The modern “Tire Tread” textured grip on the handles keeps the knife firmly seated in your hand while performing chores. Jimping is strategically placed around the handles to give you added grip while your fingers are wrapped around the knife. The curved Tanto blade in the Zhànshì is stunning and reminiscent of a traditional Japanese Tanto blade with a few modern enhancements including jimping along the spine of the blade and sharp lines leading into its armor piercing point.
Inside the Zhànshì (Warrior) OTF knife, you will find our new dual spring technology where two springs give the Zhànshì its authority and consistency while firing. We have also redesigned the button (trigger) for better grip and position when deploying the blade. The button features sharp details and smooth action while being less obtrusive in your pocket. The Zhànshì’s pocket clip makes for a fast draw and easy retrieval whenever you need to put it to work. Other fine details include a “battle tested” glass breaker and sleek screw design to complete the Zhànshì’s distinguished look. The Zhànshì (Warrior) will most certainly please even the most discerning of aficionados.
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.
