RST7844: KnifeCenter Exclusive Gslip Slipjoint Folding Knife, Natural Micarta
Real Steel Knives

The Gslip is the first slipjoint design collaboration between Ostap Hel and Real Steel. Like the G5 Metamorph, the Gslip is a tour de force in design and aesthetic application. However, as an improvement on the G5 Metamorph, Ostap has upped the design appeal with an oversized pivot screw and a well-designed blade profile. Diametrically opposed to traditional slipjoints, and like many of Ostaps' designs, the Gslip takes functional and timeless structures and gives them a modern overcoat. Instead of a full steel pocket clip, Real Steel opted again for a deep carry wire clip, that not only gives further points for style but allows the knife to be carried in a discreet and smart manner. Finished with a seldom-seen VG10 blade the Gslip takes a big step up from its bigger brother in the G5 Metamorph. This special KnifeCenter exclusive version features gorgeous natural Micarta scales instead of the normal G10.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Pick one up at a low introductory price.
Great retelling of a gentleman’s slip joint folder. The current trend of merging old school knife tech and modern materials and techniques needs to be supported. This knife is a very nice example of that amalgamation working. Bonus, it’s at a budget price. It looks great. It’s slim but the length still fills the hand nicely. Expect some variation in the micarta from the pictures. My example is lighter in color. Also, the stop on the blade is not at halfway like a traditional slip joint. The first stop on this knife closer to seventy five percent. No real complaints. It’s a light duty slip joint. Keep your expectations reasonable and you won’t be disappointed.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great Modern Traditional
No matter if you are a traditional fan, or a modern/ tactical fan, this knife will appease both ends of the spectrum.I became a fan of Real Steel when I purchased a Megaladon a few years back, so I had no issue pulling the trigger on this one at the sale price ($39). Great "gentleman's" knife, well suited for work, play, or dress.The pictures don't do the blade any justice. You will be pleasantly surprised by the high quality fit and finish. The Gslip is a little taller and slightly longer than a traditional trapper pattern, and include a half-stop, that's more 3/4 of the way to the open position.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Heck of a product at this price point.
The design itself is just fantastic. Perfect blend of contemporary and traditional and the proportions are exceptionally well balanced. Feels great in hand and is a very capable cutting tool.Came nice and sharp with impressively clean, consistent, even grinds. The overall fit and finish is top notch, especially at this price.My only criticism is I think the backspring could be a touch stronger but I'm use to Great Easterns and the lighter spring tension on this is still plenty strong to be a capable tool. Love that they went the extra mile and put in a functional half-stop too!
