Thread: Hogue Doug Ritter RSK mk1-G2

  1. #1

    Hogue Doug Ritter RSK mk1-G2

    So, I literally just got this in the mail like 12 mins ago lol

    After hunting down a knife from Spyderco (whom I love) for a few weeks, and then stumbling over to Benchmade, I discovered this knife. I was told for $160 itís be hard to beat and it helps the knife rights guy Doug Ritter out. Size, steel, tip and shape seemed really great. Plus heís responsible for the Ritter Griptilian Classic.

    Apparently the Benchmade Axis Lock patent is up so Hogue was allowed to use it and itís called the Able Lock here. Apparently instead of Omni springs Hogue uses Wolff which are stronger.

    Blade is 3.44Ē of 20CV.
    G10 scales.
    Deep carry clip.
    Partial liners

    Deployment is super glassy smooth. Blade is centered. Tall edge that is toothy and really nasty sharp.

    Youíd be hard pressed to find a better value at $160 honestly.

    Unless something shows up in the coming days (I will report it here) it seems flawless.

    I've met Doug and his family once or twice at the Blade Show. Once they gave me a ride from the motel over to the show when I stayed offsite.

    I bought the knife from a fella over on bladeforums that I know who tinkers with knives a bit. It's the Ritter Grip with M390 and the aftermarket titanium covers from Kevin Wilkins (Germany) who's been on the internet for many years.

    He gave me a deal I couldn't refuse. I forget who made the Mokuti clip, which is awesome.

    Great BM copy.

    Generally speaking avoid food prep with a folder with liners and deep crevices unless you're willing to disassemble it for thorough cleaning...... Or avoid any food contact beyond the blade.
