The culmination of more than two years of design and prototyping, The Rook Knife is the one we've always wanted and could never find – a thoroughly distilled construction that strips away the excess. Pocket knives have always possessed some familiar, gravitational power; from the time that we're old enough to understand their value as useful, beautiful, dangerous tools, they hold our imagination - beckoning to be picked up and used. The Rook Knife is a full-metal construction, slimmer than most folding knives, but with greater density and heft.

The Vapor Black version is stainless steel throughout, with a black PVD coating that's super-durable and matte textured. For those inclined towards the dark side, this one's for you.

The Tricolor version features a body that's half brass-half stainless, and a blade that's black PVD coated for a hint of tactical precision. A nod to the classic Craighill color/material palette, it's an unusual blend that works shockingly well. The brass side is left untreated and will develop a natural patina – the more you use it, the brighter it will stay.

The perfect carry

So I’m not a huge knife guy/knife snob - however I do like to carry one for small tasks, and I also like to carry well made items that will last. Well - this covers both. This is a VERY well put together knife - sleek, sexy, functional. It also came out of the box with great action, no blade play, and decently sharp. I love the size of it - smaller than some prefer, but I don’t like a lot of bulk, so this is perfect. Don’t let the price scare you - the quality is unmatched, and this is a real knife - not a paperweight.

Incredible quality

Picked this up as a gift, and now I’m wishing I ordered myself one too. Design is so refined, coloring is great, mechanics are flawless, and the weight is just perfect.

Engraving is top notch too. This knife looks amazing online, but still wowed me in person.

The Rook’s simplicity is also its refinement.

Small Strong and elegant with beautiful lines. It slides easily into the watch pocket of my jeans
