1. ÿRoll the closed knife around in your hands. ÿThe feel of the knife
with blades closed proves that any edges are smooth, the result of hand buffing all surfacesand edges.
2. ÿThe backs of the closed blades are not sharp or ragged; ÿthey are
smooth.The benefit is that closed blade backs will not cut a hole in your jeans pockets, especially when lifting heavy objects like hay bales. ÿThe smooth blade backs are accomplished by "swedging" the blade, i.e. buffing with a cloth wheel and jeweler's rouge, a buffing compound.
3. ÿOpen all three blades. ÿFeel how smoothly and without grinding the
bladesÿ open. ÿBuffing of the tang accomplishes this smooth operation. ÿNow slowly close the blades. ÿThe smooth movement is called the "Walk of the Blade."
4. ÿAs the blade gets close to the closed position, the knife spring forces the blade to snap into its locked place with a loud noise. ÿThis is the "Talk of the Blade." ÿ It is ÿnice and memorable way to refer to the hand work a dedicated manufacturer puts into his product. ÿIt also proves that the knife will stay closed in your pocket so you do not ram your fingers onto an open blade when reaching into your pocket.
5. ÿHold the knife closed and blades up and look down the blades. ÿYou will see that the blades have been bent so they fit snugly together, narrowing the knife and making it more comfortable in the pocket. ÿThis is called "cutlering" a knife.
6. ÿFeel with your finger tip the smooth finish of the brass liner on either side of where the blades, which are open, lie when closed. This is a hidden area many manufacturers neglect to finish. ÿThat Ruko finishes them so smoothly is proof that Ruko offers the consumer an exceptional value, that is, exceptional workmanship and attention to fine detail at an affordable price.
