1. Roll the closed knife around in your hands. The feel of the knife
with blades closed proves that any edges are smooth, the result of hand buffing all surfacesand edges.
2. The backs of the closed blades are not sharp or ragged; they 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. The smooth blade backs are accomplished by "swedging" the blade, i.e. buffing with a cloth wheel and jeweler's rouge, a buffing compound.
3. Open blades. Feel how smoothly and without grinding the
blades open. Buffing of the tang accomplishes this smooth operation. Now slowly close the blades. The smooth movement is called the "Walk of the Blade."
4. As the blade gets close to the closed position, the knife spring forces the blade to snap into its locked place with a loud noise. This is the "Talk of the Blade." It is nice and memorable way to refer to the hand work a dedicated manufacturer puts into his product. It 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. Hold the knife closed and blades up and look down the blades. You will see that the blades have been bent so they fit snugly together, narrowing the knife and making it more comfortable in the pocket. This is called "cutlering" a knife.
6. Feel 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. That 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.
