The outdoor adventure knife, entirely re-imagined.

The Redstone is designed to be a compact and lightweight outdoor knife that you'll bring along anywhere the trail may take you. With our new island design concept, the Redstone allows for a finger to rest between the islands, providing superior grip, especially for a smaller knife. The Redstone is built around a one-piece die-stamped chassis which makes it incredibly strong, reducing the overall number of parts. The Redstone features our TJB Slide-Lock design for secure lock-up and easy one-handed use. The Redstone features a Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel for high corrosion resistance and great edge retention and has our very first bent-wire clip, it's the lightest and simplest clip possible.

Sandvik 12C27 stainless-steel blade

6.2” overall length

Island grip design

Inspired by climbing holds

Made to go anywhere.

Everyone in the backcountry needs a pocket knife, but there are few that you can both trust and blend seamlessly alongside the rest of your gear. The opportunity we saw with the Redstone was to make a small, lightweight knife that you could toss in your pack and basically forget about (until you really need it), but that had more premium materials, and was full-featured. The Redstone features our very first formed-wire pocket clip, a hand-hold grip design, an ambi-dextrous slide lock mechanism, and a partially serrated blade.

The outdoor adventure knife, entirely re-imagined.

The Redstone looks different because it is different. We created a one-piece chassis design that allowed us to minimize parts and keep out dirt and grime, while providing the structure required for the mechanism and grips. It can be fully-operated (both opened and closed) with one hand, and has a slide-lock mechanism, meaning that it’s extra secure when opened, but still easy to unlock and close with one hand. The Redstone uses our very first bent-wire pocket clip– one of the very lightest and most functional clip designs out there. It also comes with a lanyard, so that you can deploy it easily or clip it to other things. Add in a partially serrated blade ready to cut or rip, and the Redstone really is the full package.

Every Detail Considered


Designing the Redstone.

We developed the Redstone with professional rock climber and photographer Savannah Cummins. She gave us a great insight; there are always three things in the top of her pack: a Bic lighter, some lip balm, and a small pocket knife. The thing about a pocket knife is that you never know when you are going to need it, but when you need it– you really need it. No other tool will do the job. Making one that is small enough to make the cut when you are packing your gear, but useful enough for hard and repeated work is a difficult undertaking. That was the mission of the Redstone.

An idea worth holding on to.

Savannah is a rock climber, and rock holds, especially those inside climbing gyms have a very particular set of forms that are designed to maximize grip and surface area for fingers. This was our second insight. Grip on pocket knives is always an issue; imagine the consequences of dropping your wet pocket knife from a rock outcropping hundreds of feet off the ground. Could we use the concept of “holds” to make a small knife with great grip?

This “hold” concept gave us the chance to have some more fun with color, as that is always one of the things that is challenging in the pocket knife space: the general materials palette doesn’t allow for much exploration, but injected “holds” could really open things up.

I was skeptical about this funny looking knife, but I really like them. Lightweight and comfortable in the hand. I have 6 of them now.

Unusual knife

I have collected and used knives for years and this one of the most unusual ones I have. The two piece handle is really quite comfortable. It is very easy to open and close one handed. I have several Benchmade knives with the same type of lock and this one works just as well. I like the triangular blade opening hole on the blade. It is light weight but feels very sturdy . It came sharp and appears to be well made. I have only had it about a week so cannot say how it will hold up. Most of my knives have a non serrated blade but this combo blade can come in handy for cutting rope and fiber. In case of an accident, it should cut a seat belt quickly. I am very pleased with this knife so far. My order was shipped very promptly.

Level of detail is amazing

Details not limited to just the knife. I’m talking the user experience on the website, order creation, shipping, and unboxing. The packaging and supplied info material(stickers) are all very well thought through. Someone really knows what they are doing and I wish I could hire them.

The knife is lighter than anticipated and for me a good thing. It’s for the wife and it put a smaller on her face so we all won this round!
