Product Description

Designed by RJ Martin, the RJ I’s blade design and grind provides a moderately curved belly with plenty of slicing power, plus a flat-ground tanto tip that’s significantly thicker than comparable tantos. The result is an über-strong tip that takes on the toughest piercing tasks with no fear. The RJ I (#1985ST) features 3-D machined G-10 handles with a stainless-steel liner lock on the back only, making it a lightweight carry. It opens easily with SpeedSafe® assisted opening with a handy flipper or thumbstud and carries tip-up or tip-down for right-handers and tip-up for lefties. Partial blade serration adds cutting power for tough jobs. Since the company's founding in 1974, Kershaw Knives has been dedicated to quality. This has led to a worldwide reputation for performance and innovation in tools and knives.

I took a chance with this knife, not being able to find much info. I'm not a knife geek or collector, but I've owned dozens of $10-$20 knives, a couple of mid range auto openers and a really expensive Spyderco that I lost. I liked a friends Kershaw Leek with the assisted opening and it's sharpness. With this knife I am equally impressed. It is a really great size for my taste with the 3 1/2 inch blade and about 8 inch total length. It was a touch smaller than I thought it would be and glad I didn't buy the RJ II. I really like the feel of the handles. The cut outs keep it from being slick or slippery feeling. The blade was very sharp out of the box. It opens very easily and nicely with the flipper on the spine. The thumb studs are pretty useless in my opinion because they are too small, to close to the handle and I really have to dig my thumb into it to open it. Blade locks shut securely and no wobble. I love the gun metal gray color of the blade, looks real nice to me. Very low profile clipped in the pocket but part of the knife will be visible if you reverse the clip.

Cons: The pocket clip was very, very tight. So tight it felt like it would rip my uniform pants. Bent it out a bit and it and it's fine.

For the money, it is an outstanding knife for me. China is stamped on the blade and I don't know where it was actually made. Seller shipped pretty quick with no complaints. I also purchased a Kershaw Tremor, which I reviewed and with both of these Kershaws I am very impressed and happy with their products. I am a total fan now. I don't know why this knife is not a more prominent item for Kershaw or on Amazon because I don't think you could buy anything better for the same price, maybe twice the price. I'll take 5 or 6 of these any day over my buddy's $170 Benchmade. Hope this helps.

Thr RJ series is another good addition to Kershaw's budget line. The RJI is the larger version; both are made in China. The product listed is the half-serrated RJI, and I own both the plain edge and partially serrated versions.

The blade is 8Cr13MoV stainless, and is treated with a titanium carbo-nitrade coating. this gives it a grey look, which I'll admit, I don't like. I took my knife apart, used a Dremel and poliush, and made it look satin finished. The blade is hollow ground and 3-1/2" long with a 3-1/4" cutting edge. It's 1/8" thick. Both sides are ground and sharpened (I hate chisel grinds) so that's great. The blade came razor sharp right out of the box, and my experience with Kershaw's 8Cr13MoV indicates that this will be comparable to AUS-8 in terms of edge retention and sharpenability. The blade has dual thumb studs, but I don't know why. I tried using them to open the blade, and my thumb is just too large to get into the small space provided, between the thumb stud and handle scale. The studs don't serve as the blade stop pin either, but they are removable by simple unscrewing with pliers. The flipper is ideal for me; not too large and not too coarse. It serves as a small sub-hilt when the knife is opened. There's no jimping anywhere on the blade, so I added some with a Dremel. The tanto point is actually quite useful, which I had doubts on. It's great for piercing, and doesn't get in the way of normal cutting.

The handle is made of stainless steel liners underneath machined G-10 scales. The knife is 4" closed. I like the pattern on the G-10, but the area under the pocket clip had to be sanded down so it didn't rip my pants. Even then, the clip required some loosening by sticking a nickel under it overnight.

This is a good product:
- substantial blade with Tanto form.... very sharp, very beefy tip.... the Tanto design is specifically for thrusting through armor so this blade is great for punching holes in addition to cutting.... I experimented around and while I didn't do such a destructive test, I believe it will go through sheet steel like you have on appliances with a little effort... it came out of the box very sharp able to effortlessly slice through water bottles without bracing them etc.
- the handle and blade is thicker that the pics imply... it's plenty beefy for it's size
- overall size is small.... these pocket tactical knives are 3-3.5 inches and are surprising;y small when you get them out of the box....
- blade color is darker than the photos.... it's a medium gunmetal grey kind of color with some type of finish...
- the thumb stud is too short and too close to the handle so using it requires effort and makes you overshoot ending up with your thumb in front of the blade during opening, which I don't like
- the flipper opener works great, a firm flick and the blade flies open with a solid and intimidating 'snick' sound... very nice
- the liner lock is thick, fully engages the blade in a visible and confidence inspiring way.... so I really like and feel comfy with the locking mechanism.

overall a great product

The RJ1 is longer/bigger than the RJ2 in spite of what the description says, blade is 3.5" long. The first thing I did was remove the thumbstud, which is useless. Then configured it for tip up, strong side carry. I had to loosen up the clip a little but other than that, this EDC blade rocks. This is everything my 'SOG Twitch Tanto XL' is not. Every corner of the blade and handle is rounded. The handle is very slip resistant and blade is very sharp. For the price, it's a best buy. Love it.
