It’s been awhile since I’ve taken a look at any outdoors related products so how about a knife from a company called RNS Star. The knife is a folding pocket knife that can be used for most anything at all really and it’s very inexpensive but yet it seems very well made overall. Read on to learn more…

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The RNS Star knife ships in a plain white box and inside the knife is wrapped in bubble wrap for protection during shipping.
When closed the knife is small, pocket sized as it were. One side has a sturdy metal clip. It’s just slightly under 3.25 inches long and the handle is etched with what resembles a snake skin pattern. The handle of the knife isn’t solid, it has holes in it making it just a bit lighter in weight. The knife is made of stainless steel but it’s very lightweight coming in at about 78 grams or 2.75 ounces.
The knife is thin, it’s just .25 inches thick not including the clip or button.
When extended the knife is 5.75 inches long and once the blade is out you can access the finger notches for a better grip on the knife.
The snake skin pattern continues onto the blade partially and the RNS Star logo is there. The blade is double edged and very sharp out of the box. The back edge of the blade is serrated but it’s not sharp at all.
The specs say the knife has a liner lock but it doesn’t, there’s a button that slides back and forth. If you pull it down you can flick the blade open very quickly, it acts as a lock to hold the blade closed but you don’t have to use the button to open the blade it can be pulled open with your fingers. The blade locks in place and then you just pull the button to unlock it to fold the knife back into the handle.
The RNS Star folding pocket knife has many uses to be sure, the knife can easily be carried in a pocket or bag and it has a sturdy clip as well.
The knife is small and has finger grooves making it comfortable and easy to use.
The knife seems well made, it’s not loose and fold and unfolds smoothly.
Right now it’s $10 on Amazon and for that I’d say it’s well worth it.
