I just got one from one of my principals (I sell there products) for Christmas!!! Seems like a great knife... Mine is made of steel and not stainless steel- so you have to be sure to clean it quickly after exposure to blood or weather.... as it will rust more readily than SS knifes..

I own several high carbon knives, daggers, and spears. To protect your expensive new non-stainless knife you should use a little turtle wax. (carnuba wax) It will keep it nice and rust free. Also, do NOT store it in a leather sheath, The sheath itself can stain the knife over time. (if I knew then what I know now.:()

What a great little company with a wholesome and fine product. I have been stopping in and checking out their stuff for quite a while now, and even though i dont buy and havn't been in the market for a new piece, the guys still spend time with me and talk about the pieces while i'm visiting...they know me and know i'm not there to purchase and they still take the time to shoot the bull about some of the prducts with me....good people.

I use a thin coat of RIG on mine to keep it in great shape.

These are great knives. I went for years preaching about how the Buck 110 was all the knife a MI hunter ever needed. Since i bought my Wolverine (Rapid River), my Buck rides backup in my pack.

Worth checking out.

FYI - In addition to the list by Whit, Jays also sells them (when they can keep them in stock).

Does RR have a website where we could view their catalog. See pictures of what they offer?

You're welcome Kris!

I see that you have 20 posts. Obviously you've stayed out of the radar of the mods and that's good. Like I mentioned in my email last week my wife and I will be passing through Rapid River on our way to Menominee this summer and we'll stop by. Are you in the same building where Marble Arms used to be just as you get into Gladstone on US2?

Whit1, If what I am doing is considered spamming, let me know. I don't want to make anyone mad. I am just answering questios and thanking people for the warm welcome. We are located in Rapid River and not in the old Marble's building. We are just past the Whitefish river next to the forestry station. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you this summer.
Kris

Kris,
No, you are not spamming in any way. You're a site sponsor and can do this. My reference to your 20 posts and keeping out of the mods' radar was meant in all humor............:lol:
