Barry Gallagher’s Rave® assisted opener features hand-contoured
Micarta® scales, our Fire Safe™ actuation, plus our patented OutBurst®
The Barry Gallagher Rave® folder by Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) is just
one more example of our ability to take a stunning Gallagher custom design, put it into
production, and retain its custom knife quality and feel.
Barry says he designed this folder to be an all-around outdoor utility knife, light (2.4 oz.)
and small enough to carry every day. The 2.88” clip point blade of premium 8Cr14MoV
stainless steel with a high flat grind will do it all, from opening mail to cleaning fish to field
The Rave has our rigid InterFrame stainless steel build, with innovative wave-patterned
scales that are hand-shaped from layered black/gray linen Micarta®. They are not there for
visual effect, but to aid grip. No matter how you turn the Rave, there are always deep grooves
for your fingers and thumb.
As a bonus, we were able to engineer into the Rave our patented OutBurst® assisted opening
with the patent-pending* Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by
the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is
firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly
Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and
fast access that we have ever seen in sport and work folders.
To complete the Rave, we also added a custom removable polished stainless steel
It’s a knife like many you might find at custom knife shows around the country, often
costing hundreds of dollars (although they don’t have the Rave knife’s patented opening and
But in this case, it’s a genuine Barry Gallagher design with an MSRP of just $59.99.
Shhhhh! We won’t tell if you don’t.
