CRKT is to be commended for reaching out to soldiers turned knife designers with combat experience in its Forged in War series. The latest by Jeremy Valdez. The knife called Septimo is a tanto style blade. Very heavy duty knife, yet slim and light. Some great views of it here, as well as some footage of Jeremy in service. As we approach our Fourth of July celebration, we thank all those who served and remember those who paid the price for the freedom we enjoy.
Just learning about this US, Michigan based company that is turning heads, getting great media coverage and winning consumers over one knife at a time. I don’t have one in house yet to test but I could not resist sharing this video shot by my friends at Everyday Tactical Vids.(follow on YouTube for great reviews)

No I am not a hippie… That whole experience predated me by several years. Somehow about every 20 years or so Tie Dye makes a comeback so multiple generations recognize the multi color. Rough Rider Knives might just be in the right time for their contribution to the seemingly tireless pattern with two knives.
The colors that dominate the two knives: on one is orange, the other pink. For my review I have the orange version. It is a very colorful knife with assisted opening. It’s also a liner lock knife.
As you can see the tie dye is everywhere including the liners and the clip. The body of the knife is a reddish orange but somehow it all goes together. The liners extend past the body to form two lanyard holes. Yes, I can see all kinds of paracord, bling, beads whatever tied to those two lanyard holes.
There is a some jimping along the handle as well. Don’t think it is really necessary but it does look nice. Here are the specs on the knife :
440A stainless steel blade with tie-dye onlays. Blade flipper. Thumb hole. Assisted opening. Plastic handle. Tie-dye design pocket clip and jimped liners. Lanyard hole. 2-3/8” spear point blade. Blade thickness: 1/8”. 3-1/2” closed. Psychedelic packaging.
Here is a size comparison to the popular Kershaw Shuffle which I reviewed earlier:
The box is almost as colorful as the knife and has the once very popular “feelin groovy” printed on the box.
I purchased this knife because it was different. It’s not expensive, and it opens easily and quickly. Pretty sure I have flicked it open at least a hundred times and the lock up is perfect on the knife. It is small, so if you have very large hands it might be hard to open, but if you can get your finger on the flipper, it will fire open right away.
Just simply a fun knife to use and perfect for summer. I recommend getting one or two. Take it to the beach, on a picnic or maybe a hike. Enjoy this season of Tie Die by Rough Rider.

A good solid look at a variety of automatic knives. This look is from the Next Archer on YouTube. A very knowledgable reviewer who attends knife shows and has educated himself on the current market.

A good look at some common Camp Knives as we go into the camping season. Every knife has a purpose, but the camp knife served several special activities. Listen and watch to learn about the wonder and useful ness of these knives. As told by Blackoracle69 Thanks for watching and following Steveknife !
I reviewed the Kershaw Shuffle last year and found it to be a useful EDC style knife. Recently I watched my friend, a fellow reviewer, nerv5th as he takes a look at the bigger Kershaw Shuffle 2. Here are his thoughts…
Enjoy your day! Steve
