Columbia River Rollock 2 - Black Handle - Razor Edge
Since the original Rolox® was invented in 1975 by Blackie Collins, it has been an expensive cult knife that attracted an enthusiastic following. Unfortunately, production was very limited. After reaching an agreement with Rolox to manufacture the concept as a true production knife, we asked brilliant young Texas custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz to redesign the original classic. The result was a production knife that has the smoothest Rolox action ever, with an entirely new look, and a price that put it in any pocket or purse. Allen improved the blade shape, handle design, and added a custom stainless steel clip. To show how this sliding "folder" works, the polycarbonate scales with an engine turned pattern are translucent.
Suddenly it was a great new knife, and we renamed it the Rollock® to complete the transformation. This year, we added a blade notch that allows easy one-hand closing, and two models with 420J2 stainless steel scales- one in brushed finish, and one in bead blast with guilloche engraving.
But the visual appeal is only part of the story. The trick is to achieve such tight manufacturing tolerances that opening and closing action is both smooth and sound. Thanks to CNC machining and exceptional quality control, we have achieved what Bill Adams, President of the Rolox Corporation calls, "The slickest Rolox action I ever sawmuch smoother than the old handmade ones and at a fraction of the price!"
What you get is not a toy, but a quality cutting tool, with a mirror polished frame of 420J2 stainless steel and a 2.25" blade of AUS 4 stainless steel. The drop point blade is taper ground, mirror polished with a Razor-Sharp edge.
The clip is also mirror polished 420J2 stainless steel, which can be clipped on pocket or belt, or used as a money clip. Or add a split ring and you have a truly unique key fob. The Rollock weighs only 2.3 ounces.
One hand opening is as simple as pressing at the base of the blade and sliding the blade open. Click! A rigid lock-up. Aggressive friction grooves make it easy. To close, just press the blade lock, let the blade slide back, and press the blade in place until it locks closed. Click! A strong spring keeps the blade closed.
Our new Rollock 2 proves several things. First, that a great folding knife doesn't have to fold, and second, that owning a precision tool doesn't require taking out a second mortgage.
