      ok i am giving you 4star simply because i like your stuff normally but this months blade has no real function and in some states might even be questionable to carry the workmanship is ok the edges are dull but i am assuming you want it that way because a two edged dagger or three edged dagger sharped could be an issues i will put mine in my collection its definately not a EDC or any other kind of carry knife sorry guys you missed on this Months issue

      This feels like a very poorly thought out knife… It feels unfinished as well. The clip and sheath are hard and oddly placed. In the belt, you would end up poking yourself in the abdomen constantly and in the boot, the triangle lump would make it tough to conceal. The handle is bare, and it is too thin to be gripped comfortably. Received this as the monthly knife and while I was BLOWN AWAY by last month’s Ambassador, I am equally as disappointed with this knife. This is practically unusable, while last month’s knife has not left my side since unboxing…

      This stabber will do nice on my vest. It will not be my primary, well not planning on it anyway, but who knows how it will go.

      It may take a little or lots more energy to penetrate anything, due to the point being dull and little rounded. The edges have no sharpness.

      4 stars instead of the achieved 5 stars from other knives I have received from the monthly knife club.

      Extremely unimpressed with this knife. Several knifes in the club have been awesome, while others have been quite lackluster. This one was the one that finally let me down enough to cancel my subscription. An almost unusable chunk of metal.

      Not functional, not sharp, poor design in my opinion.

      Though I see no use for this knife, it is still worth the $16.00. Since I have been a member I have received 3 previous knives that were excellent! I guess .75 success rate is pretty good so far. Thank you RavenCrest!

      Not your best, but I guess maybe the bar was set too high with the last couple knives I got in my subscription. Still referring everyone I know but this months knife was just not in the same class as all of the others. Doesn’t mean I won’t be giddy like a kid at Christmas when I get the next one. Great company, great idea with the raven pac club. And for $16 bucks I understand they all can’t be $50 knives. Keep em coming boys.

      As usual the quality of the knife sent out is top notch. The steel used in the construction of this blade is excellent and very durable. The finish is top notch and it is a very visually appealing knife. The kydex sheath, like the knife, is durable and well made. My only issue with this knife, is what would it be used for. I like the knife. I like the way it feels in my hand, the blade is good, and with a little bit of work it is extremely sharp and holds an edge well. I just did not know what it was for. Until I talked to my friend, fellow Ravencrest member, Jon Brewer. Jon told me to try stabbing things with it, so I did, and wow was I impressed. I found myself walking around my garage looking for things to stab. It almost pulls itself into things. I stabbed multi-layers of cardboard, plastic buckets, old basketballs and volleyballs, and even the door on the parts jeep that resides in my garage. It had just a bit of and issue with the door metal, but only because of how light the knife is. But I also found that with the right application of force, i.e. a hammer, it would punch right through. I gave this knife 5 stars after I realized its purpose. I would not use this as an EDC knife, but it has found a home in my backpack, because it has many uses as a utility type tool. It is sharp enough to cut, it is thick enough to use as a digger or to pry things with and it is durable enough withstand abuse. I also like the one sided edge because it makes it really easy to sharpen. Strong work Ravencrest.

      Great spike, will definitely be going on my vest since my cold steel spike came up missing. People should learn the intended uses for different blades before commenting on the practicality of a blade.

      I am extremely pleased with this months Ravenpac. I love how different every month is. This month especially. Ravenpac is introducing me to blades and tools that I wouldn’t have previously purchased. This month introduces a tool that is exactly what it is, a backup defensive tool. It has one function, to stab and do damage. It is not a “knife” so don’t expect it to be one. It is extremely pointy sharp, not cut sharp. You will not be “using” this everyday. It wasn’t designed for that. One thing about the spike that it describes in the description is that it is triangular shaped, there needs to be a picture so you can see that and understand what that means. It is completely flat on one side, perfect for carrying in a boot or against your body. The sheath fit and finish is amazing. A Win in my book Ravencrest!

      Really happy with the monthly knife club. I like the different variety of knifes you receive each month. It is really money well spent.

      I like it. Light, strong and useful when needed.

      Lost the top climbing rung to my deerstand and drove me new “stabbing Knife” into the tree.
      It worked well and supported my weight. No bending or coming loose. Regardless of use or design, a man will always find a new use for a tool.

      Wonderful, great balance and good edge…

    16. Rated 5 out of 5


      I think people are being too harsh on this review. It’s not supposed to be sharp, or multi purpose. This is a self defense, stabbing based weapon. Not a utility blade. Good for a backpack or in the car door. Do to it’s blunter edge, you could, though questionably, could use this as a kubaton. Think of the Cold Steel punch daggers, or the Benchmade skeletonized daggers. It’s really a singular purpose weapon, not an edc blade. I personally really like it. It is a bit thin, but it’s supposed to be tight and concealable.

      Another awesome product from Ravencrest. Excellent job on both the spike and kydex sheath. Definitely a nice addition as a last-ditch defensive tool.

      When you absolutely need to stab someone in the neck, this will get the job done.
      That being said, this blade is legal to own in my state, but not legal to carry. It’ll be readily available in the house in case someone needs to be stabbed in the neck.

      Pretty good, nice to have a self defense knife on me, and at work it is pretty concealed on my belt and under my shirt, I have been signed up since June, and I carry all the knives I have received thus far.

    20. Rated 5 out of 5


      I love this defender spike. As many have mentioned above, this is not a “knife” in the cutting sense. This is a self defense tool and should be used for poking things. As a tool, it is definitely durable and works as intended. Good craftsmanship, clean design, and very simple elegance. If you find the handle too thin, then wrap the handle…Paracord is fairly inexpensive and it’s useful to know how to wrap/braid with it.

      Definitely not an EDC (every-day-carry), but going in my hiking/camping backpack cuz shit happens, and this is a tool above and beyond stabbing things…. just be clever.

      It’s made just fine, but doesn’t have much of a purpose. Could be good for throwing. It’s also awkward and uncomfortable to grip. I’ll just save it for the trade up OTF program.

    22. Rated 4 out of 5


      Haven’t seen the video yet, like the spike, really like the finger loop, when held for defense the finger loop on the index finger prevents dropping while striking or defending, and adds a bit of brass knuckle effect. Definitely an EDC keep it in my boot when at work.

    23. Rated 4 out of 5


      I received this knife this month and LOVE it! I am very happy with this knife and the sheath. Only thing that I wish it had was a thicker handle, but it can be wrapped fairly easy. Granted it is not the most useful knife, but it is a knife that I would normally not buy, so it is nice addition.

    24. Rated 4 out of 5


      not my style, but my daughter loves it.
      first thing she said was, “daddy, can you wrap the handle in paracord?”
      i have to admit, it was much more comfortable after i did.

    25. Rated 2 out of 5


      For the first knife to receive in this subscription (after seeing some of the cool stuff previously sent) it’s a bit disappointing. This will go in a desk drawer & probably stay there. It’s made well enough for a spike I guess – if that’s what you want – but it’s pretty dull & not very useful for me.

      I received this as part of the Ravenpac. I love this knife. The sheath is great. This now my main self defense knife.
