The new Barry Gallagher Rave™ folder by CRKT is just one more example of CRKT's ability to take a stunning Gallagher custom design, put it into production, and retain its custom knife quality and feel.
The 2.88” clip point blade of premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a high flat grind will do it all, from opening mail to cleaning fish to field dressing game. The Rave has our rigid InterFrame stainless steel build, with innovative wave-patterned scales that are hand-shaped from layered black/gray linen Micarta®. They are not there for visual effect, but to aid grip.
No matter how you turn the Rave, there are always deep grooves for your fingers and thumb. As a bonus, Gallagher was able to engineer our patented OutBurst™ assisted opening with the patent-pending Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in sport and work folders.
To complete the Rave, we also added a custom removable polished stainless steel pocket/gear clip. It’s a knife like many you might find at custom knife shows around the country, often costing hundreds of dollars (although they don’t have the Rave’s patented opening and safety features).
