Sometimes you need a thin-as-a-razor, low-profile companion for fine-tuned tasks. This is not one of those times. The Ripsnort™ everyday carry knife is as beefy as it gets; the big a** blade is modeled after a cleaver. And it shows.

Designer Philip Booth grew up watching sparks fly in his father’s tool and die shop, and he’s since made a serious name for himself from his own in Ithaca, Michigan. Surrounded by everyday carry folders replete with drop point blades, Philip decided to crumple up the go-to blueprint and make something totally different. Enter: the Ripsnort™. A cleaver-shaped blade owns the first impression, but the black handle with a stainless steel accent isn’t far behind.
With a powerful knife comes a secure lock up when the blade is open thanks to the burly locking liner. Once open, the substantial flipper acts as a finger guard in the midst of whatever dirty job it gets thrown into.
Put this one into action, and watch butchers everywhere flush with envy.
Philip Booth is a modern day version of a human phoenix—when his art studio burned down in the late 80’s, it left his life’s work of paintings and art prints reduced to ashes. Instead of letting it knock him down, he was reborn as a knife maker, and has since swept up a handful of prestigious awards like the Blade Show’s 2016 Most Innovative Design award, and their 2005 Best of the Rest award. He’s a mechanically orientated artist, and his innovative, artful tools are proof.
