When a cattle rancher finds his calling. Designer Richard Rogers lives on a working cattle ranch. His toughest critic is a cowboy and his field values no frills. So when he set out to make a reliable everyday carry knife, he vowed to keep it simple. The result: The Maven™. Understated and designed to a T.
Richard Rogers calls Magdalena, New Mexico home. His life both as a rancher and a designer is governed by one serious principle: “good enough” isn’t acceptable. One might even use the word, “maven”—a trusted expert in a field—to describe Richard himself. Though his is a simple, salt-of-the-earth style of living, it’s one that demands a commitment to working until the last steer has found his way home and the last detail of a knife is in place. If there’s any perfect illustration of this, it’s the Maven™ knife. Both this one and its sister, the Cuatro™, are everyday carry folding knives that are lightweight, but built to get beat up.
The Maven™ features a 3.7” modified drop point blade with a hollow grind and a bead blast finish. With an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot mechanism and a prominent flipper, it’ll open fast and hop on the job in a hurry. Contoured G10 handles with a solid first-finger notch ensure a grip even through gloves or bad weather, and the locking liner keeps everything in its place.
When the need for simplicity is serious, the Maven™ steps right in.
