Rook Knife - Vapor Black
Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 5 reviews

$ 150

The Rook Knife is the one we've always wanted and could never find – a thoroughly distilled folding knife that strips away the excess, yet still somehow feels both distinctive and entirely familiar.

Pocket knives have always possessed some magical, gravitational power in the world. From the time that we're old enough to understand their value as useful, beautiful, dangerous tools, they hold us in their grip, beckoning to be picked up and wielded.

But a knife is not a toy. They demand care, attention, and caution – to own one is to accept responsibility for the potential energy contained within. 

The culmination of more than two years of design and prototyping, the Rook Knife is a frame lock folding knife with S35VN blade steel, a drop point blade, and a flipper mechanism for easy one-handed opening. Constructed entirely from metal, it's 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.

I've had several pocket knives. Love this all-black one. Love the way the knife flips open.

Slim, Pocketable Knife with a Beautiful Finish

This knife is exactly what I was looking for. It's thin, hefty for its small size, and fits perfectly in the pocketwatch pocket of jeans. The finish is smooth and beautiful to look at, and the mechanism is so precisely engineered that it is satisfying both to open and close it. When open, there is no wiggle or wobble whatsoever of the blade.

Yet again I am super impressed by the quality of something from Craighill!

Handy once you break it in

I love this knife. It’s simple, well shaped and the right amount of force is required to open. The locking mechanism is strong and easy to use one handed but takes a while to lock properly with an extended blade without pinching the lock.
