This is one of those items that when we came across, we knew we had to have. There is something so naturally badass about an OTF knife. The lightning-fast action on the RCT-1 feels like power in your hand and the construction of the handle and blade are rock solid. Of course, at least some of that badass factor comes from the fact that this knife is definitely not 50 state legal, so make sure you check your state guidelines before ordering. This blade instantly became our EDC knife of choice and has been holding up to our daily abuse like a champ. This is not a gimmick or a novelty, this is a well built knife designed for daily use.

The mini RCT-1 Raven Double Action Out The Front Knife features a 440c Stainless Steel blade with a two tone matte black finish. The Tanto Blade can be quickly deployed with the ambidextrous sliding button. Pushing forward on the button deploys the blade out the front of the handle and pressing backwards on the button retracts the blade back into the handle where it is ready again to be deployed at a moments notice. The 2.75″ Tanto blade comes with an aggressive partially serrated edge giving you tearing and cutting power making it a great all purpose blade. The Tanto blade is exceptional at both piercing and slicing due to its angular shape and tapered spine which creates a strong point. The Zinc Alloy is “rubberized” and patterned for non-slip handling in any environment. The metal pocket clip is reversible and can be carried in the button back or button front positions. When clipped into the pocket it has a nice low profile “ride”. The end of the knife features a glass breaker pommel designed to shatter glass or break anything else you might need to in case of an emergency. All RCT OTF Knives have a safety feature that will not allow the blade to fully deploy if anything is obstructing it’s path. The blade will then need to be reset by pulling the blade all the way into its locking position making it again fully functional.
