  • The knife is the flagship collaboration between Vosteed and R.S. Knifeworks (Rob Saniscalchi). The knife features an M390 blade and titanium handles, and it also comes with a re-innovated locking mechanism - Top Liner Lock. The knife combines the best of both worlds- tons of fidget factors and a high level of lock strength.

    Top Liner Lock 

    Different from Rob’s frame lock custom version, the knife utilized its own Top Liner Lock (patent pending), which is similar to a hybrid of insert-liner lock and Compression lock.

    The Top Liner Lock is intentionally designed to be strong and secure.

    When the knife is in the closed position, the lock bar is almost completely hidden from view. The standalone stainless-steel plate is firmly secured in a milled pocket inside of the TC4 titanium handle, and it is further reinforced by a solid TC4 titanium backspacer.

    When the knife is in open position, the lock bar will keep the blade in place and prevent the blade from any further rotational motion.

     

    Multiple Deployment

    Similar to other Vosteed knives, the knife is also equipped with multiple deployment options. The chamfered thumbhole and the low-profile flipper tab work well together, and the combo offers both great convenience and fun fidgetablity. The finger choil (also provide clearance for the Top Liner lock) and the jimpings further increase functionality and safety when more control over the knife is needed.

     

    Premium M390 Blade

    This Vosteed knife is based on Rob’s highly sought-after custom knife. The blade is made from Böhler M390. Both the Wharncliffe (3.46”) and Sheepsfoot (3.30”) version feature Rob’s bold signature compound grind. 

     

    Two Fantastic Finishes

    a. The dark version has stonewashed PVD black titanium coating both on the blade and on the handle, and it will be paired with a golden aluminum pivot collar and matching hardware (screws and pocket clips).
    b. The bright version has a satin-finished blade; its handle, button, and pocket clip are stonewashed and then sandblasted; this version has a copper-colored aluminum pivot collar.

     

    Delve into the Details

    To enhance the ease of operation and user experience, the knife features a CNC-milled TC4 titanium button. The height and travel distance of the unlock button are designed to reduce accidental unlock.

    Furthermore, the 3D milled titanium pocket clip offers both secured carry and sleek aesthetics.

    Nice Knife

    Well, I broke my own rule with this purchase, which is " No knife is worth more than $200". While this is a nice knife and I like it, and it compares well with my Benchmade knives, which out of the 3 I own, only one was a little over $200, I still own knives that I've paid less than $50, and one I've carried off and on for years, that still functions perfectly, and believe me, it's a heavy duty knife. You did good, though, but I probably won't buy another one.

    Very Well Thought Out

    This knife was very thoughtfully designed. The action is smooth & fidgety, the feel is comfortable, and the looks are astonishing. My only “ugh” about it is that it’s a tiny bit larger than I’d like it to be. It’s definitely in the top 2 of my 9 Vosteed knives (prob #1) but still, I just ordered the new Dachshund as it looks very similar to the RSKAOS but is “slightly” smaller. So I’m really looking forward to the arrival of that one. It could be the “perfect” Vosteed, we shall see… But all in all I would certainly recommend the RSKAOS to anyone, without hesitation. It truly is an awesome knife!
