Benchmark Rolox, the father of CRKT Rollock
on: January 04, 2024, 12:03:20 AM
The CRKT Rollock is on my wishlist due to its "original" mechanism. I wrote "original", because I just discovered that it's just a smurfing ripoff!! Bad CRKT, bad!

 :twak: :twak: :twak: :twak:

Well, maybe not just a copy of the real original. CRKT has some very good knives and they are not the worse manufacturer I know (by far). I saw this Benchmark original, from last century (OK, the 1990s, but technically last century) and it's a real beauty. See for yourselves:

Here the two, side by side:

Here's an even better version of the Rolox. Feel free to  :drool: :drool:

I saw an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, where a Traveler went to the future to steal CRKT's new lock design and then returned to the past to give it to Benchmade.  So you may have misplaced ire on this one.

Wow! That's just  :drool: :drool:

 :like: :like: :gimme: :gimme:

I first knew about the Rolox when I saw an advert for an used one, going for €545! I then search the interwebs and discovered the same model, new, for about US$175.

Not too expensive for such an unusual knife.
