    Received this as my Ravenpac June 2018 knife. After unboxing the knife, the knife was smaller than any other knife I own, but yet was still comfortable to grip and flip out the blade and flip back closed. The wharncliffe blade definitely gives the knife as a whole a very striking look. I will say the action to flip the blade out is a little tight, but I’m sure it will loosen up over time. If there was one change I would make to the knife, it would be to make it a spring assist, but I’m definitely pleased with the knife either way.

    I carry a Bugout 535 daily, but I finally found a knife worthy of trading off with and that’s the RCT Modern Simplex right out of the box my heart started beating faster. This should be a $50 to $70 dollar knife, the epitome of badassery.

    I received this knife today in my Ravencrest box. I was extremely disappointed. The knife is barely able to open, the handle flimsy, and the blade was exceptionally dull. This isn’t even worth returning, and it will probably end up in the trash… but for a $16.00 “box of the month, ” I guess I can’t expect too much. RCT… you dropped the ball on this one.

    Right. So. “Simplex” this knife is… just that, very simple and clean. The Simplex is light and snappy, so light and compact that you can carry it in a small “coin pocket” or if you’re feeling frisky you can even hook it to a key chain. You barely notice it’s in your pocket. I for sure recommend this little guy for anyone who wants a nice little knife for basic tasks!

    This was the first knife I received from the monthly membership. It is light but strong and sharp as a razor. Will make a great everyday carry utility knife very impressed

    Great knife, very light with a sturdy blade. I used this to replace my utility knife. The single straight edge is also easy to sharpen.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    Very clean and simple looking. Fairly sharp out of the box. It’s a very sturdy knife and flips out strongly. It’s very easy to carry anywhere because of the slim profile. Similar in size to a slim OTF

    This is a perfect all around knife. The wedge style to the blade makes it great for cutting and separating. Ravenpac delivers again.

    Got this knife today. If you aren’t enrolled in the monthly knife club, you’re missing out on some awesome knives. This one is sleek, balanced, extremely sharp and VERY FAST.

    This is my first knife from ravenpac and I’m very happy with it. Well balanced great blade it opens quickly and the locking mechanism hasn’t failed me yet didn’t like the handle at first but it grew on me. This is my new EDC until next months box comes in. If your not a ravenpac member I would strongly recommend you sign up. Thank you ravencrest for a great knife

    My first Ravenpac knife and I couldnt ne happier with the quality of this knife. Simple may define this knife in its use and appearance, but not in the aesthetics. Very clean and nice workmanship. Couldnt ne happier. Sad I missed out on last months pac. Can’t wait for next month.

    I was not expecting much from the pictures when I knew this was coming in the mail for my monthly subscription. Boy was I wrong, thinking it was going to be a large rectangle that would be a pain carrying in my pocket next to my phone. It is very slim and lightweight and it is definitely in the running for one of my favorite knives thus far. The action is extremely quick and smooth, came out of the box very sharp, overall, very impressed with this one.

    this is the first bad blade i have gotten form ravenpac sorry to say i find it to be bad takes two hands to open one to release the lock another to flip the flipper its very light though the blade is not bad nice edge work on it i think final fit and finish could be better and quality control definately they should have caught the opening issues right away. oh well one bad one out of 10 good ones so far still makes me a happy customer keep working on it would love to see one of your otf in the monthly subscription

    Got this knife in the Ravenpac, so happy with it. It’s simple and clean, a real gentleman’s knife. Again they used the ball bearing pivot, after opening and closing a few times it’s slick as butter. Another great knife.

    Not impressed at all, knife appears cheap and flimsy. Blade seems nice, very sharp. But the rest seems like it came from a Cracker Jack box. I’ll wait to see if they do better next month. If not I think its time to cancel my subscription to the Raven Pac knife club.

    Very nice knife. But, 1 significant issue. The flipper is too smooth. Sometimes making it hard to open.

    Amazing knife, first knife from Raven’s and I have to say well built and amazing feel. Can’t wait to receive more. Amazing !

    Happily received my Ravenpac knife this month. I then tried out the blade on the bubble wrap pack it was shipped in and the knife couldn’t even cut through the paper.
    Completely dull and dead blade.
    That was disappointing as I expected more from their quality control.
    They said they will ship a new knife out, let’s see what happens…

    This is my favorite Ravenpac yet – I love the shape and size! Easy to edc, as you’ll barely notice it in your pocket. I used my dremel and cut out a half moon groove where it now makes it super easy to disengage the liner lock! Super smooth action and now easy to disengage. Get one!!

    Of all the knifes I have received from the RavenPac this one is one of my top favorites. The design is sleek and simple, the blade is very sharp, and it is very lightweight in the pocket. The action on the knife is smooth and pops open with the flick of one finger. All around a great knife. Raven Crest you have done it again

    This is a neat little knife. It’s simplicity is its beauty. Would’ve been 5 stars for me but it’s a little rough for me to open for some reason.

  25. Rated 5 out of 5


    Simple. Light. Fast. Sharp. Everything I can ask for in an EDC knife. Out of the box Insaw a Higonikami workman’s knife. This is everything a modern Higo should be. If you don’t already own one—get one. You will not be disappointed.

    I’ll be honest, I did not like this knife when I first got it. Looks kinda cheap. But it has grown on me. Its thin and lightweight. I’ve seen a few others say it wasn’t very sharp, but I’ve had the opposite experience, and am missing a patch of hair on my arm from testing its sharpness. However, this is the third knife I’ve gotten from the monthly club that I had to email and find out where it was just to be told they dropped the ball and it would be sent out immediately. I’m really hoping I get next months knife in a timely manner, otherwise I’ll be canceling my membership due to unreliability and slowly degrading creativity.

    This is my 4th Ravenpac club knife and i love it. Might be my favorite knife ive gotten yet, because its small enough to carry daily. My knife is very easy to open and very very smooth opening. Also super sharp. Simple knife but totally worth owning one.

    This is such a simple awesome edc blade. I am once again blown away with the quality of RCT products. It’s amazing that receive a bad ass knife sent right to my door step every month for under 20$. I don’t see how they do it! Amazing design, quality, and customer service. I’m so glad I took the leap and started buying from RCT. Hands down my favorite company. I can’t say enough! Thanks guys!

    This knife is a great EDC though I must say I was a little thrown off by the perception of handle at first; seemed thin but definitely has since proven to
    be of good quality. It has a smooth open and close and is very sharp. My only ‘complaint’ is the lock release may be better suited on the butt of the knife, given the knife’s size and the smooth action I’ve caught my finger with the blade a couple times closing it (I’ve habitually learned after the second time!). I have yet to be disappointed with any knife put out by RCT!

    Best Knife of the month yet! I’ve been receiving knives monthly since January 2018 and to date this is the best yet! I like the small lightweight design and the razor sharp edge! This knife has replaced my Benchmade daily carry knife! ($160 value). Great value for a high quality blade!

    I received my first knife in the mail it was the simplex folder. For under twenty be dollars I got one hell of a deal. It is very compact, light incredibly sharp and works great as an EDC. I have carried all kinds of knives and this one is very comfortable and durable I’m finding uses for it everyday. Can’t wait for the next one.

  35. Rated 5 out of 5


    One of my favorite EDC knives. It is compact but solid and while it opens smoothly will not open easily. The knife is not incredibly sharp but can hold an edge well enough for the general tasks an EDC is meant for.

  36. Rated 4 out of 5


    As the June 2018 RavenPac knife it was a little under whelming… However, after using it for a few days in the field and in the house it has proven its place in my arsenal of knives. Out of the box mine is a stubborn opener, but I am sure that after more use it will smooth out. I have so many knives that I have inner turmoil as to which one to take with me to work that day. This one is a solid EDC.

    Unbelievable knives ! Unbelievable price! I love the knife you sent me last month. Edc simplex. Light and sturdy. I’ve carried it everyday at work since I got it to kinda test it’s clip and durability. (I do commercial structural concrete carpentry work) I’ve been very impressed and happy. Also the sharpness of the blade was unbelievable. Literally shaved hair off with it. Today I received fixed blade kukri type knife. AMAZING! Keep up awesome work. I just want to figure out how I’m gonna get my hands on one of yer OTF knives not legal here. I don’t care but I’m sure you do.thank you so much for yer amazing knives. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION. CAN’T BEAT IT

    I joined the RavenPac May 29th. I have received 2 knives. So far I am very pleased! I have roughly 50 knives and so far these are in my top 3 for the price. RavenCrest definitely knows how to create a knife. Badassery! My only request is, after my last shipment the knife was not on the site. Maybe add a little paper in the shipment that gives a name and material in which it was made from? Just a suggestion…..

    One of my favorite knifes so far. I love the sleek design. It’s great for carrying every day. Light weight and not bulky but still have good blade length. Very sharp so be careful when you close it.

    I ordered this awesome feeling knife ( I just got it in hand) & I wanted to say how astounding their customer service is!!! I ordered this on a Sunday when they had a $10 sale (boy did I clean up!!) & I purchased 3 knives. I fully expected the delivery to take a couple of weeks for 2 reasons, 1) I’m sure they were inundated with orders & 2) These were not full priced knives so they might be send out after full priced ones & I paid for the $5.99 shipping.
    Boy was I wrong!! I received these beauties in less than THREE FULL BUSINESS DAYS!!!!!! – Just outstanding service & these seem to be very high quality!!
    Thanks for some of the Best Customer Service I’ve ever gotten!

    Another hit RCT folder! They have been hit and miss, but the ones that are good, are really good. This one is very light, flies open, and closes easily. Closes as though it’s a flipper, yet it assisted. There isn’t that tough spot when closing. I haven’t had it long, so I cant comment on durability, but I’m loving everything about it so far!

    Love the blade design on this knife!! The fact that it’s a little hard to open makes it feel like an assisted design but it’s not so I feel that it will last longer. Overall great everyday carry to open boxes and whatever else.

    The design of this knife is simply and yet alluring. It fits in any pocket with its smooth lines and size. One of the easiest carrying knives I’ve owned. It’s my daily carry now. Goes with the jeans as a utility knife, on the job with the duty pants or a night out with my slacks. Fell in love with it when a friend showed me his. That led me to buy two of my own, one in case I lost it or a friend steals it. A great styled knife I would, and have, recommended to others.
