The Ridge Runner Firefighter Assisted-Open Rescue Folder Set features two assisted-open knives, a large one and a smaller one. Each anodized stainless steel blade rockets open with just a nudge of the thumb stud using the patented assisted-open mechanism. This set is the perfect gift for the hero in your family!
these blades are amazing the big one is great it opens easily, it fits comfortably in my hand my only complaint is that the small ones liner lock was very stiff and it was hard to open in the first place. but both were very sharp out the box.
Shipping was fast. Arrived 3 days before due date. Knives were sharp right out of the box. It does say that it is made in China, but still seems to be good quality. It cut paper right out of the box. I put a little gun oil on it to loosen it up a bit and it worked just fine. Great knife for the price, especially when you get a second one to go with it. If it only says, stainless steel, which it does, it usually means that it is 440A (according to one source). Out of the 440 series 440A is the lowest, 440B is the middle range and 440C is the highest quality. Good all around beat up knife in my opinion, especially for the price. You can't go wrong because even if it breaks, it's not a $200 knife that you have to replace. Very pleased.
These are great tools, the seat belt cutter is extra good if you cannot reach your belt strap in an emergency situation and the glass smasher is a no brainer. I really like the tanto style blade and two for one is a great asset if you want to store one in your extra car or truck.
For the price of these you can't beat the deal. Both came sharp and I have no complaints.
I bought a set and liked it so much my son-in-law bought one too! I keep the big one in my car for emergencies. Fast opening, sharp, and versatile, it is a great folder to keep around!
Ordered several gifts. They are handy with the one handed opening. The price is right and the knives are better than expected. The ones I have given out the guys like them.
I bought these for $10 when there was a deal for shipping, and expected an okay pair of pocket knives, but wow, they're surprisingly nice. They look nice, came fairly sharp, and open WONDERFULLY. I don't use the thumb stud at all, but use the bit that sticks out of the other side of the grip. With just a bit of pressure on that, the blade FLIES open, and makes a satisfying sound in doing so. The only complaint is that the larger one, which I've opened hundreds upon hundreds of times, has developed a bit of blade wiggle if I mess with it. I'm sure that I could tighten the screw fairly easily, though. I can't really blame it for getting a bit loose though, considering how fast it comes open, how many times I've opened it, and that it was $10 for BOTH of these knives. I haven't tested the seat-belt cutter or window breaker, but they look alright, and I'll just make the assumption that they work too. Definitely worth the money.
O.K, so I bought a couple sets of these to give to some firefighter friends of mine. I had a few left over, and after examining them, I didn't think they were of particularly good quality. (Keep in mind, I'm a police officer and I carry S&W knives. It just didn't feel as hefty to me.) Well, my can opener broke...so I dug out one of the extras I had laying around of these. Its been through absolute hell...the kind of hell I wouldn't put my S&W through, because I'm reasonably sure it'd break. I decided after I'd opened a few cans with it that it was now my personal mission to break the damn thing, so I didn't buy a new can opener. Its been a couple of months now, and I lost track of how many cans I've opened with it. I have to give these knives kudos for being pretty much unbreakable.
Just opened the set and both are better than I thought they would be, the little one does not fully open with the finger flip however the big one (which is the one I carry does) GREAT DEAL
I bought this is a Father's Day gift for my dad (who is a fireman) and he loves it. He carries it with him almost all the time. The knife is very sturdy and opens cleanly. It made a great gift and I would recommend this to anyone.
NIce blades really good point and also can keep a nice edge im also getting the EMT pair
This is not a fake post(I thought some of them might be). This was a GREAT buy. They look cool feel good and are D*** Sharp out of the box (I rubbed my thumb across the blade lightly to see how sharp it was and got a pretty deep cut lol).good assisted opening not the fasted I've seen but still pretty quick. the only flaw is that the smaller knife's lock is hard to undo when wanting to close the knife(which might be a good thing for some people). Great knifes glad I purchased them Thanks BudK :)
What a great pair of kives. Sharp right out of box, and the assisted opening operation is smooth and fast! Have not tried the belt cutter or glass breaker. I will use one and give the other to my better half. Get the pair now.
I have 2 sons and a daughter-in-law who are firefighters, and they all carry a set of these knives. They just love um. They keep me up to date on how the knives are doing and when it gets close to replacement, they know I will order more. I try to keep at least one spare in case one of theirs breaks. I hope you never stop making them.
This is a GREAT knife set for the money. Looks great, Feels great and does the job it was intended to do. NO fear taking into the field.
I bought these to put in the cars for emergencies. I like them so much I had to buy another set to put in the cars, because 1 is in my pocket & the other is in my coat pocket.
I bought a few of this style of knife to raffle off & 4 myself use. I purchased 1 a year go & have even cut threw wire a few times & it hasn't lost it's sharpness. I luv it. thank u. schnidrr
I love these knives and have one on my belt at all times. I bought about 50 sets of them to give to family and friends. They wonder why I give such expensive knives away. I don't tell them they only cost $5.00 each. I let them think I'm generous.
Excellent value, can't beat the price!! A+ So nice went back to buy another set. Came sharp, use it on everything, easy to resharpen.
Came very sharp out of the box. Nice looking knives that make great gifts. One stays in my pack and th other in my pocket. I have given both the firefighter and EMT sets as gifts. Lots of smiles. Really lad I purchased these.
These knives came relatively sharp, and very little tightening was needed on the screws. Once those adjustments were made, these guys have been extremely durable and useful. I've bought some for friends and have heard nothing but good news about them.
I've recommended this knife set to many friends, I bought a few of them and gave some away as gifts. Got many "AWESOME"s and smiles, thanks! I use it quite a bit, never a problem, stays sharp. I've also purchased the firefighter version and gave a few of those as gifts. This is a very well made knife and I carry it my pocket, as do the folks that received them as a gift. Did I mention that this really does make an excellent gift?
Bought 3 sets, gave two sets to brothers and their wives for their cars. Everyone liked them. Then I was in an accident Monday, seatbelt worked. When the Firefighter/Paramedics arrived their already professional attitude changed to a personnel one when they saw the knife attached to the seat belt.
I love this knife i gave the small one to my mom an still use the large one going on like 4 months or so... needs tighting time to time but nothing lock tight cant fix.It shiped REALLY SHARP an still is REALLY SHARP i work at a tree service i use it everyday it cuts through our climbing rope with ease i love it an only 10 bucks wow thanks bud k...
Every time I take my knife out somebody want it.I wish I had had them during Christmas for gifts.This is a great knife for every use.I have carried a lot of knifes ,but this is the best.
I like giving gifts to family, friends. This is a perfect gift for just about anyone. Great looking. Awesome price. Razor sharp. Easy to use. Great for hunting, fishing, defending yourself or just showing it off. Excellent deal and I'm very pleased as usual. Thanks BUDK as you never cease too amaze me! :)
GREAT BUY, Came very sharp and the assisted opening is wonderful when working & your hands full. Gave the smaller one to my wife & she loves it. Great product BUDK.
looks very nice, but it wasn't for me. however, the friend it was for says he is going to break up the set. he is keeping one knife & the other is going to his son. the friend was quite pleased with the set. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone looking for a very useful knife!
One for me and the other for my son. Very sharp, use daily in my work. Love the assist-opening, makes it much easier to access when wearing gloves. Came sharp out of the box. Great bang for the buck!
This is a very nice buy. the knives came sharp right out of the box. They have a very nice design (like a tanto knife) and my friend cant seem to get his hands off of them. I completely recommend this buy to anyone, if it's for a friend, or just for yourself. GET THESE KNIVES!!!
Thot i was buying the 2pk for myself but i liked it so much i gav the bigger one to my BFF for xmas and he loves it :-) love u BudK :-*
This knife is absolutely great! It's sharp enough to cut hair on your arm or face. And I have recommended this to friends and they think this is a great knife to. You should definitely buy it!
Great knifes nice and solid also easy to use.the clip works well no problems cool cheap gifts 2 for the price of 1.
Got this for a friend and I am impressed with it. Don't let the price fool you it is nice. If I was a fireman i would keep it sense she doesn't know i got it. A little oil made the lock on the small one work fine. A flick of the finger and it is open. Wont open in your pocket like some. Real sharp also.
Great set of knives, especially for a "lefty" such as myself. Both knives arrived tight and in great working order.
This knife is amazing! I go beaver hunting and this knife killed it in one swing! My 50 year old dad said I wouldn't get the beaver skin but I cut off the hide and it was good! THIS IS AMAZING.
I have made a lot of reviews on BUD K knives and only dinged one knife as being a disappointment because all the others were great knives for the money and many far above in quality than what the price would suggest and this set is no exception. I can't believe the strength and quality of this pair of knives. Both are top drawer with quick and easy acquisition of blade deployment, locks up tight with no play at all and the blade is sharp! Since I received my set the price has gone up a dollar and I am ordering another set before the price goes up again however if the price triples it would still be a bargain. This set should be standard issue to all firefighters and first responders, believe that! You won't be disappointed!
Such an awesome addition to my collection. Love the "FD" logo on the handle and the smaller knife that matches it perfectly is also pretty cool. Was very pleased with the packaging and also how fast it was shipped.
Well when I first got these knives I had to tighten the blade just a bit but that's just a shipping problem but the knives came very sharp. Unlike other people that order from here my knives came with not one scratch and not one chip of paint missing. It only took 4 days to get them!! The Larger knife should be 20 dollars at least and the smaller one 15 dollars to. All in all a great knife and great price.
A very good deal, will make good stocking stuffers. Knives work fine. My only complaint is I order several items and the box and items smelled so bad of pesticides I had to leave them in the garage for a week and even then the smell lingered on..
Highly functional a decently built. The blades are sharp. The firefighter handle seem a bit silly, but they look good. the assisted open functions well.
I bought this knife a few years back and it is assisted opening as soon as you barely push boom it's open it is handy for many reasons and is a well evened out weight I would recommend this to anyone of my friends.
Bought these on an impulse and glad I did. Keep the larger one in my vehicle and the smaller one I can carry with me. They are sharp. Only downfall is the larger one has a metal imperfection on the handle that is sharp and needed to be filed down.
You can't beat getting two good knives for 10 bucks, especially when you catch a free or 1Â¢ shipping promo. I checked other sites & TRUST me, this is the best value. Although they are not of the very highest quality, you're also not paying prices that START at $30+ for one knife. These knives come sharp from BudK. The assisted opening is very nice. You won't be disappointed. Lastly, BudK customer service has been great every time I deal with them.
GREAT buy, just a couple minor glitches or quirks: CHECK the screws, add a drop of Locktight or similar- they tend to come loose; and a drop of any quality oil/lube on the blade pivot-point helps with opening as it should: lightning fast & a positive lock-in-place. Highly recommended set! (I have 4 now!)
i ordered the wrong set but its still a great knife so im just going to give it to my brother in-law and order the right set later.
Knife is very well designed. Only compliant I could have is that the liner locks on the smaller of the two knives doesn't lock very secure. Can fix it with a little manipulation. I have bought 4 sets. Giving them as Christmas presents. For the price...can't beat it.
This is a very good knife, it is very sharp and opens good, I would give this knife as a present.
I am conducting an experiment for the purposes of my online survival show and for this particular survey I ordered 15 knives and machetes from BudK, ALL of them PRICED $9.99 or LESS then compared upon delivery to see what I got for the money. This is ONE of the results - look for my other reviews for more info as some of the items were GREAT and some were not so great -- Here are the results for this item: This is an great deal for the price. These knives are good and sharp with a tanto blade and plenty of features. Also the glass break button on the handle is not uncomfortable as it was on one of the other knives. Good positive liner lock upon opening - I recommend this item, worth the price.
ordered these a while ago and the only problem I have had is that there is a piece close to the blade that unscrews easily and I lost the piece. As far as i can tell it is only for visual pleasure as it hasn't affected the knifes performance at all. both knives come sharp and hold an edge very well. Thank you BUDK.
opens very fast the big knife lost the screw that keeps the blade in one spot really easily so the blade wiggles around a lot.
Just got these knives today and I love them. The big one fits perfectly in my hand and is perfectly balanced, and I have see no problems with it. The smaller one, on the other hand, is awkwardly small for my hand. The lock doesn't engage unless I flick it REALLY hard, and the blade has a wee bit of play in the handle. For the price you can't go wrong. Thanks budk!
The knife needed some lock tight, other than that it's a sturdy little knife.
This is a pair of really good knives. I particularly liked the serrated edge and the little details. My only 2 concerns were (1) that the knives needed some sharpening to be razor sharp, but nothing a few strikes on my sharpening stone couldn't handle, and (2) some care needs to be taken when putting the knives in your pocket. The open mechanism does not have a second lock and the blade could open accidentally.
Well it's definitely a decent blade and handle too, but the lock breaks insanely easily. Most cheap folders don't have amazing locks anyway, but the blade is d*mn thick for a folder. The screw suck, already had to break the lock even more to get the blade out just so I could keep it because it was so good for so cheap, but yeah the lock is pretty crap. The "rope" cutter on the back of the handle works well, used it to cut through paracord and it did fine. Otherwise its a decent knife with a crap lock, something you can expect from all cheap folders, and has a d*mn nice blade for the price.
I ordered these knives as a birthday present for my friend and I was very impressed on first look. The knives work well but the little one doesn't lock well. If I got two knives like the big one I would've given a 5 star review.
Flat out, these knives look great. I liked the assisted opening and was really happy with these knives...until I used one. The smaller knife as another reviewer stated does not lock. I was very unimpressed with this and did expect them to be a bit better quality...well, I should be able to assume a folding knife would lock in the open position. The larger knife is perfect and I would have given these a 5* rating if the little knife actually performed as it should.
I am not happy with these knives. They look good but the small knife I received is defective, the blade does not lock. The knife is too small to be gripped properly for breaking glass or cutting seat belts and the seat belt cutter makes it unacceptable as a pocket knife. The larger knife may be big enough to be a useful escape/rescue tool. This set might be an attractive addition to a collection but I do not believe they are suitable for daily use.
