The antithesis of delicate. Sometimes you need a thin-as-a-razor, low-profile companion for fine-tuned tasks. This is not one of those times. The Ripsnort everyday carry knife is as beefy as it gets; the big a** blade is modeled after a cleaver. And it shows.
Designer Philip Booth grew up watching sparks fly in his father's tool and die shop, and he's since made a serious name for himself from his own in Ithaca, Michigan. Surrounded by everyday carry folders replete with drop point blades, Philip decided to crumple up the go-to blueprint and make something totally different. Enter: the Ripsnort. A cleaver-shaped blade owns the first impression, but the black handle with a stainless steel accent isn't far behind.
With a powerful knife comes a secure lock up when the blade is open thanks to the burly locking liner. Once open, the substantial flipper acts as a finger guard in the midst of whatever dirty job it gets thrown into.
Put this one into action, and watch butchers everywhere flush with envy.
