The Rike 1504 is a very beautiful knife with a great finish. It’s quite hefty in size and the ergonomics are cleverly designed. The two-tone finish is gorgeous! The large surfaces are gold with a blue glow in between. When you move the knife around, every angle seems to give you a different colour.
The blade opens fast and very smooth with the flipper. It really jumps out because the blade runs on ball-bearings. When opened, the Rike 1504 locks with a frame-lock. To prevent the titanium frame-lock from chipping in the steel blade they have added a steel insert. As a result there is no steel-on-steel contact which keeps it from wearing out. The insert also plays a role as a so-called "overtravel-stop". It means the locking can’t over-stretch during unlocking and it keeps the lock perfect for years.
The blade is made of CPM S35VN-steel. A high end steel which guarantees long-lasting sharpness. On the back of the blade there are small groove made for extra grip. This is called jimping. The finish is a very fine stonewash. To carry the Rike 1504 with you daily it has a fine milled pocket clip.
