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.
Fayetteville, North Carolina
Coming from a Special Ops background, Darrin doesn’t design knives that just work in theory. They need work in action too. And he knows the missing element to any great blade: human input. That’s why you’ll often find him hounding his Special Operations teammates and asking them what they like and don’t like about their knives. Now as part of the Forged by War™ program he’s fine-tuning until his knife-making mission is complete. Along the way, he’s earning nods from awards shows and fellow soldiers all around the world.
