Description
RST3716: Bushcraft Folder
Real Steel
 
After the Bushcraft Fixed knife became very popular, Real Steel was asked to bring out a foldable version that combines the classical attributes of a Bushcraft knife with the compact size and mobility of a folding knife. As a result, they made a Bushcraft Folder featuring D2 steel and the classic Bushcraft Scandi grind. The back of the blade is squared off for use with a fire steel. The knife utilizes a liner lock for safe and secure lockup. They reduced the weight through intelligent milling of the steel liners to just over six ounces and the contoured scales made of G10 ensure a firm grip even in wet conditions. To complete the knife it comes with a nylon pouch for easy carry wherever your adventures leads you.

Great Knife, sheathe not so much...
Overall this is a great knife in fit and finish. Every thing is flush and tight, no wobble or uneven edges. And for D2 steel, the price is very good. Overall the feel is good in the hand, and due to this being a larger folder it fits the hand better. The scales have a nice texture that aids in grip. The blade is fairly thick for a folding knife making it stout and a bit on the heavy side (if that's a concern for you). Would love to see a variation with a pocket clip. Now the sheathe on the other hand is utter crap. Thin nylon and weak rivets. The rivets tore out the second time I wore this knife. That said, I often don't buy a knife based on the sheathe as there are plenty of third party sheathes you can buy. Bought a nice Nite Ize sheathe for $12 that fits this knife nicely and is 100 times better than the sheathe that came with the knife.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Sheath, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Just received this knife today, so this is an initial impression, not a performance review. Fit and finish on this knife is very good. The action is smooth and locks up tight. The texture on the scales provides good gripping surface without being abusive to hands or clothing, if you decided to carry it in a pocket instead of the belt pouch. Although, it would be a bit bulky for pocket carry. The belt pouch appears very sturdy. I kind of wish the area for releasing the liner lock was not flush with the frame, but stood around a little bit. Dual thumb studs are large. Aids in blade deployment, but hinders sharpening. The handle is 0.86" at it's thickest point and mine weighs 6.5 ozs. for the knife alone. The contour to the scales combined with the thickness gives a very good feel in the hand. It arrived usably sharp, although the tip was just not quite pointy. I always have to resharpen new knives to suit myself, so the problem was fixed. All in all, I'm pleased with the quality of the knife and don't anticipate performance issues.
