This was my first slip joint knife recommend to me by a friend. It completely changed my preferences towards the knives I like. The walk and talk is great the blade was perfectly centered making it a delight to put this knife to use when I pull it out of my pocket. This is a great knife.
This knife is truly brilliant! After ordering two of the recently released jigged ti penguins I decided to give this knife a shot. I have quite a large collection of mid techs and customs as well as a ton of mainstream knives from many different companies and the fit and finish on the HRJ is on par with or better than most. The value here is unbeatable. This knife has all of the benefits and cool factor of a traditional pocket-knife with none of the shortcomings. The jigged ti is flawless and feels amazing in the hand, the pull at both the half-stop and full stop provides a truly satisfying audible click; perfect pull on this knife in my opinion. I bought the sheepsfoot variant which provides more than adequate tip strength and the flat grind on the blade is thin enough that the knife glides through most every-day tasks with ease. I've used it for food prep, opening boxes, 550 cord, and many other daily tasks over the last week or so. Lastly, this knife is just sexy to look at. When I first saw the pictures online, I thought it looked a little too wide/large. After receiving it, I can definitely say that pictures do not do this knife justice. The machining, ergonomics, form factor, simplicity, and price-point make this knife an easy winner in my book and I look forward to any of Austin's future projects. HOMERUN!
very good take on a slip joint with modern materials
blade shape is a working mans style of sheep's foot
easy to open but with enough walk and talk to not think it's going to close without you wanting it to
I’ve had this for a few weeks now and I couldn’t be more impressed with it. The fit and finish on it is fantastic. The walk and talk is exactly how you want it. The sound on the half stop and close - *chefs kiss*
The jigged titanium feels so good in the hand. I have both jigged ti penguins and the jigged ti buffalo tooth from finch, the jigging on this isn’t as aggressive - it’s much smoother in the hand which imo leads to a slightly more pleasant feeling when needing to really bear down on cuts. Really love the coffin corner edges the entire way around. They are rounded just right to allow for that straight line look while keeping the feel in hand comfortable. I’ve kept it in the TPK leather slip when in the pocket and it still looks virtually brand new after two plus weeks of daily carry!!
I’ve used it to break down boxes of all kinds of thickness, zip ties, bubble wrap, tape - pretty much any edc task outside of food prep, and it has held its edge well with only needing some maintenance on a ceramic rod and strop.
I cannot recommend this one enough and I have plans to get a couple as Christmas gifts if they are still in stock come holiday time.
I also picked up the double blade natural micarta orj and I can see it making it into the daily rotation quite a bit! I’ve only had it for an hour or two but so far everything is on par with the jigged ti version!! I will report back once I’ve put it through its paces!
Amazing knife, Austin. Congrats! A knife for the working man that clearly and wonderfully honors your grandfather!
I don't know where to start... Excellent quality, awesome design, great price point, superb fit & finish... It's a straight up banger.
