Rook Knife

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 26 reviews
Our desert-island-essential pocket knife – zero excess, maxed out quality.
Regular price
Color:


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.

Beautiful Knife, Great craftsmanship

Has a quality feel to it. I've been using it everyday for a week and you couldn't ask for a better desk/pocket knife.

A true gentleman’s pocket knife

The simplicity and efficiency of the frame lock is very convenient. The minimal design is exactly what I was looking for and the tri-color looks great. I’m a lefty and it feels great in my hand. Very solidly made and if it stands the test of time this knife is easily a 5 star gentleman’s pocket knife all day.

Addictive Flipper

Great fit and finish. I was a bit concerned as I was not familiar with Craighill as a brand. This knife is solid and the framelock does lock up well. I can easily choke up and lightly rest my finger in the front choil area or grip behind using the deep finger groove. Only addition I would recommend is a lanyard hole. Overall a great knife!
