The design that has become the Inara™ was one of the very first customs that Richard Rogers crafted in his Magdalena, New Mexico shop. He applied his universal philosophy: keep it simple, lightweight, and hardly noticeable until it’s needed. The Inara™ rings true with a clean stonewashed modified wharncliffe blade with a strong, fine tip. It’s met with a handle built with G10 on the front and stainless steel on the back, keeping the profile thin yet highly grippy.
The true beauty is in the action. Stunning balance and a thumb stud combine with IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system to create a lightning fast, smooth-open action. Once the blade is deployed, it’s held securely with a frame lock.
The Inara™ is proof that simplicity and usability is no contradiction.

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.
