The Rook Knife is the one we've always wanted and could never find – a thoroughly distilled version of a folding knife that strips away the excess, but 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 Stainless version is monochromatic and beautifully reflective, with the unified materiality highlighting the nuances of the overall form.
