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.

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.
