Sometimes, it IS about the size of the dog in the fight. Retired Sergeant Major and designer Darrin Sirois knew what he was doing when he took a pencil to paper and dreamt up the RASP™. Deployment-ready, ridiculously strong, and incredibly sleek, this stout tactical knife is made for mission.
As a Green Beret, Darrin Sirois of Fayetteville, North Carolina is the kind of guy that expects his knives and tools to take hard abuse…and he designed the RASP™ tactical knife to accept the challenge head on. R.A.S.P…stands for “Rescue and Special Purpose” and it’ll do just that and so much more. The blade is at once a workhorse and a head turner—there’s simply nothing else quite like it. It’s a modified Wharncliffe, dubbed, “Warn Clip,” in Darrin’s terms, and features a subtle recurve. Though barely detectable just by looking at it, it effectively elongates the cutting surface, and gives it a distinctly unique style.
Deployed from its stainless steel handles with an unobtrusive flipper or a right-handed thumb stud, the blade is anchored in place by a burly frame lock. Nearly every last detail of the RASP™ features a stonewash finish, so it’s as sleek as it is powerful and resists rust and wear even in tough conditions.
Where this knife is headed, ‘oversized’ seems just right.
