Real Avid, the leader in DIY for Guns®, steps boldly into a new product category for 2024 with the introduction of the innovative RAV folding knife series. Building on the company’s mission to provide tooling solutions for the gun enthusiast’s workbench, Real Avid recognizes that the need for reliable tools can come at any moment…anywhere. That is why Real Avid developed the RAV-series folders — critical carry knives that are always at-hand and ready to tackle the important jobs.

Seven knives make up the new RAV series, with several configurations in handle design, blade material and shape, length, blade finish, and lock style to meet a variety of user needs and tasks. Sized for comfortable and convenient carry, the RAV series folders are also priced so you can have one for your toolbox, glove box, day pack, and pocket.

The RAV series knives are offered in several handle materials, including nylon, aluminum, aluminum/stainless steel, glass-filled nylon, aluminum/carbon fiber, and G10. Each has its own unique profile and texturing to suit varying tastes and deployment needs. Each knife includes a pocket clip for discreet, easy-to-access carry.

Several blade profiles and materials are represented across the RAV line. Choose between traditional drop point, Tanto, and modified clip point to match specific cutting needs, and between 4Cr14 or 8Cr13MoV blade material in black oxide or titanium finish. Blade lengths are 3.25 or 3.4 inches, depending on the blade profile, and consumers may select between standard or spring-assist liner lock models, or an axis lock model.

Being ready is more than a state of mind — it is an active commitment to being able to face any task or any challenge that may come when you least expect it. Real Avid’s new RAV folding knives are born ready to meet those challenges as part of your everyday critical carry gear.
