Vosteed’s newest knife is the RSKAOS

vosteed intro 3

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

Vosteed x R.S. Knifeworks – $249

Overall Length: 8.39″ | 213.22 mm
Blade Length: 3.46″ | 87.89 mm
Blade Material: M390
Handle Material: Titanium
Grind: Compound
Weight: 5.4 oz | 154.4 g

Top Liner Lock

Different from Rob’s frame lock custom version, the Vosteed RSKAOS utilized its own Top Liner Lock (patent pending), which is similar to a hybrid of an insert-liner lock and a compression lock. The Top Liner Lock is intentionally designed to be strong and secure.

When the Vosteed RSKAOS 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 the 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 RSKAOS 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 provides clearance for the Top Liner lock) and the jimpings further increase the 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 RSKAOS. The blade is made from Böhler M390. Both the Wharncliffe (3.46”) and Sheepsfoot (3.30”) versions feature Rob’s bold signature compound grind.

Two Fantastic Finishes 

  1. a.The dark version has stonewashed PVD black titanium coating both on the blade and on the handle, and it will be paired with golden aluminum pivot collar and matching hardware (screws and pocket clips).
  2. 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 Vosteed RSKAOS 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.

  2. Good article. Really horrible thumbnail picture. Take a close. look. Thumb On the Edge? Someone gonna get hurt!

    1. How about you do exactly that? That’s a sheepsfoot shaped blade there, the thumb is on the spine, not on the edge. Take a close look

    All this BS aside; talk is cheap; I carry Buck; loan me one of your products; I’ll try it and get you an honest opinion and send your product back. R Davidson, 2006 Cannon Gate Dr, Opelika,AL 36801.

  4. I’m a spyderco guy, but Vosteed’s fit, finish, and material is top notch. Nightshade mini, RSKAOS, Thunderbird, and Valkyrie are all part of my knife edc rotation.
