Designer Richard Rogers spends the majority of his day driving cattle. And if there’s one thing he knows about carrying a pocket knife into the field, it’s that lighter is better— you shouldn’t notice you have one until you need it. On this conviction, the Cuatro™ everyday carry folder was born. Simply awesome.

Richard Rogers spends his days in the arid, open shrubland of Magdalena, New Mexico. This leaves him space for dreaming up his next knife design. Herding livestock is a tough, dirty job, but one that has inspired the Cuatro™ and its big sister, the Maven™. These everyday carry folding knives are lightweight but built to get beat up—the Cuatro™ features a modified drop point blade with a hollow grind and a bead blast finish. With an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot mechanism and an inconspicuous flipper, it’ll open fast and get to work in a hurry. A contoured G10 handles ensures a solid grip even through gloves or bad weather, and the locking liner keeps everything in place.
Get the Cuatro™ into the pocket of your working jeans, and it’ll perform until the cows come home.
How IKBS™ Works
Designer Flavio Ikoma and Rick Lala invented this system that sets lubed ball bearings into the folding knife pivot. The result is rapid blade deployment that is smooth and fast.
Magdalena, New Mexico
Though he’ll tell you he’s only been seriously designing for four years, his extensive list of awards dating back to ‘97 paint a diferent story. Richard Rogers is modest as modest comes, creating some of the simplest, most practical everyday carry folders in the industry. When he’s not at the bench, he’s at the helm of a working cattle ranch out in the arid shrublands of the southwest. His life both as a rancher and a designer are governed by one serious principle: “good enough” isn’t acceptable. We’re on board.
