Extrema Ratio RAO
To start this off: I absolutely love this knife. This is a knife is great to have on your backpack while hiking or camping and even though its a monster, I use it for EDC. The N690 steel is my overall favorite due to the fact that it is easy to sharpen, it's a stainless steel, and it has great edge retention. The handle, though its Anticorodal - basically aluminum, is a lot tougher than one would think It has stood up to intense heat, freezing cold, and it may flex a bit but has never bent any under pressure and the coating on it is a really nice non-slip material that works better as it gets wet. The tip of this knife is a tanto but not the normal westernized tanto as it is "snubbed" in comparison to other knives, but it still hold true to the fact that the tanto is extremely stong. The sheath for the knife can be used optionally since this is a folding knife but the cool thing is that it offers means to carry the knife as either open in locked position or folded and the sheath can attach to a MOLLE system as well as be carried on a belt. Seeing as how this knife weighs a lot and is extremely big for a folder I do suggest that one should put it in the sheath and attach it to a backpack or tactical vest instead of carrying it in your pocket. Also i suggest putting some blue loctite on the screw to keep it from coming loose, i did this about a week after i got the knife and i havent had to make an adjustment since, and ive owned this knife for over a year now.Extras: 1. Knife has a lifetime warranty - If it breaks you just pay the cost of shipping to send it to Extrema Ratio. 2. Knife comes in box with a diamond sharpener.My only complaint: THERE IS NO POCKET CLIP.
