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.

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.
