When a cattle rancher finds his calling. Designer Richard Rogers lives on a working cattle ranch. His toughest critic is a cowboy and his field values no frills. So when he set out to make a reliable everyday carry knife, he vowed to keep it simple. The result: The Maven. Understated and designed to a T.
Richard Rogers calls Magdalena, New Mexico home. His life both as a rancher and a designer is governed by one serious principle: "good enough" isn't acceptable. One might even use the word, "maven"--a trusted expert in a field--to describe Richard himself. Though his is a simple, salt-of-the-earth style of living, it's one that demands a commitment to working until the last steer has found his way home and the last detail of a knife is in place. If there's any perfect illustration of this, it's the Maven knife. Both this one and its sister, the Cuatro, are everyday carry folding knives that are lightweight, but built to get beat up.
The Maven features a 3.7" modified drop point blade with a hollow grind and a bead blast finish. With an IKBS ball bearing pivot mechanism and a prominent flipper, it'll open fast and hop on the job in a hurry. Contoured G10 handles with a solid first-finger notch ensure a grip even through gloves or bad weather, and the locking liner keeps everything in its place.
