At first glance, it could be mistaken for a pen tucked into a shirt pocket. And that’s exactly the way the CEO folding knife was designed. This board-room ready knife has a supremely low profile, a thin, sleek blade, and a handle design inspired by Richard Roger’s custom knife to look like bamboo scales. It’s a sleek touch to the working spirit of everyday carry.

- Fast Opening: Recessed thumbstud with IKBS™ ball bearing pivot deploys the blade fast

Known for his clean, simple, highly-usable designs, Richard Rogers releases another formidable knife from his shop in the scrubby hills of Magdalena, New Mexico. Created with dress shirt pockets and v-neck scrubs in mind, the slim, low-profile CEO Bamboo Scales poses as a pen until a sealed letter needs opening or a suit needs a finishing touch. With lubed ball bearings in the pivot to reduce friction, a slim thumb stud sets IKBS™ in motion, quickly deploying the all-black blade. A locking liner keeps it securely in place between the handle crafted to look like it’s built of bamboo.
The CEO Bamboo: pairs best with an extra dark roast and a long to-do list.

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.
