Recently, Model City Firefighter Andrew Catron and the High Point Fire Department crew reviewed one of our elite blade-assist knives, the RX322. Designed by the renowned Ron Lake, this knife is part of our Rapid Response line featuring unique technology that makes the blade simple to open with one hand.
The patented roller-bearing mount on the blade, paired with a spring leaf between the handle liners, makes the RX322 the fastest, smoothest and safest of blade-assist knives on the market for people who are either right- or left-handed. The knife’s Max-Lock and Liner-Lock technologies keep the RX322’s blade securely in place to prevent accidental engages and disengages. The stainless steel frame, fiberglass-filled nylon handle and the following specifications give the knife dependable durability that emergency workers trust.
- 5Cr5Mov stainless steel handle
- Overall length of 8.75 inches
- Blade length of 3.9 inches
- 4.8-ounce weight
- Ambidextrous pocket clip
Catron, with the Model City Fire Department, made the following observation about the RX322:
“…I have used the blade for several different uses and have not had one issue with the sharpness of the blade out of the box. … I would recommend the purchase of this product for anyone who carries a knife on a daily purchase.”
The writer for the High Point Fire Department commented that he’s been through a lot of everyday-carry knives and that he used RX322 both on and off duty.
“The knife was balanced and had a weight to it that is heavy enough to know you have it in your pocket but not so heavy it weighted your pants down. … The knife has opened and closed flawlessly and has remained as sharp as when I took it out of the box. … I would highly recommend this knife for purchase.”
The RX322 is backed with COAST’s lifetime guarantee against defects in workmanship and materials. Check out this blade-assist knife to see why emergency responders love it.
