Toor built the Raven with a 5.5 blade for heavier tasks, and it's ground with an extra high bevel for longer sharpening life and reduced weight, leaving a perfect blade-to-handle balance in hand. Additionally, they have added a harpoon false edge on the top of the blade with 45° grinds leaving seamless transition to the tip. The Raven is fitted with their original reverse grip handle, featuring rear finger groove and pommel jimping. Their signature feather textured handles with fluted grooves provide ultimate comfort and grip, along with an iconic aesthetic. The Raven is offered in a tactical Shadow Black option as well as a natural Stone & Ebony version.
They are also extremely excited to announce the integration of the Breacher Ball technology into the Raven! For years, they have been working on breaching options for the pommel of their fixed blades, and in 2020 they began experimenting with pointed carbide and ceramic inserts for this task. Based on those successes, they knew they had the right materials, but they faced a challenge in that it was incredibly uncomfortable to wear a knife with a point on the back of the handle!
Finally, they landed on a tungsten carbide Breacher Ball for the pommel. This offered the same glass breaking effect, but it gave us a much more minimal and comfortable option for the rear of the knife. This latest model of the Raven offers almost 40% of exposed carbide ball from the pommel of the knife, allowing for maximum breaking ability. The 0.1875 Breacher Ball is press fit into the hardened tang of the knife and secured on either side by each handle scale. This is by far the most comfortable and effective breacher on the market, and theyre thrilled to launch their carbide Breacher Ball on the return of the Raven, effective on standard, tempered, and safety glass!
