Rapid River Knife Works

Post by titanNV » Thu Jul 27, 2017 4:38 am

I just ordered my first Rapid River knife.

Anyone have any feedback on these?

Made in MI, USA. Nice to see knives made in America that don't have to cost hundreds of dollars.

I'm not familiar with this line of knives. Please share your experience when you get your knife. Will you be using it or will it be preserved in mint condition ?

Rapid River makes a great knife. Made in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I believe some of the artisans that used to make Marbles knives in Gladstone are involved. They look good enough to collect, but are built and meant to be used.

I'd like to see one of the Yoopers.
I am not a fan of the laser engraving though.
