I own the original Rukus full size lock blade and the weight is a huge difference. First of all THANK YOU Blade Ops for impressive shipping, I received the knife very fast. The Rukus II is beyond words. First of all it is very light ..excellent EDC knife. The fit and finish is outstanding. The lock and unlock button is easy to operate.. a must for deploying the knife when needed. The push button opening is very smooth along with the smooth fast opening of the blade. Once open, you can engage the lock and turn it to a fixed blade. To close.. unlock and push the button to fold. Once folded make sure you engage the lock so it doesn’t open by accident in your pocket. The bade is heavy enough for a sturdy cutting blade but not so heavy to the point where it slows down the action of the knife. The blade edge is unbelievably WICKED sharp. Right out of the box it shaved the hair off my arm effortlessly, like a straight razor. The pocket clip is nice and heavy duty, not flimsy. Overall I am VERY IMPRESSED. Excellent job blade ops, I have been impressed with every order!!!!!!
If I could, I would give the knife and blade ops a rating of 10!!
Awesome knife, exactly what I hoped it would be. Hold on, because she opens like a bullet from a gun. Solid lock up, and has the ability to use the blade lock to keep it open. Very solid clip, knife stays where you put it, doesn’t shift in your pocket. BladeOps had it at my door in 2days, it’s a Benchmade, durable, nearly indestructible. BladeOps had it packaged like it was a piece of your grandmothers china. Very impressive. Bubble wrap, packing peanuts, the whole 9yards. Get 1, heck get 2.
