I recently had the following RJ Martin Knives: Kwaiken, q30 tactical folder, handiman, and combat neck knife. The Kwaiken and q30 are now a permanent part of my collection, the other 2 I ended up trading. All of RJ's knives are strong and super sharp. I hope to get a Kozuka next year to match the kwaiken. His high dollar knives are simply out of this world. If you compare his kwaiken or kozuka to a couple of the other guys that make Japanese style tactical knives, you will find that RJ's knives are far superior and usually cost less. The handiman is a great all around utility knife, very sharp and sturdy, extremely light and easy to carry around the neck. I traded it and wish I hadn't. The combat didn't really appeal to me once I had it. It was well made and sharp, but I just personally didn't care for it. This is certainly not a slam on RJ, he is one of my favorite makers. His knives are all well done, I just didn't like that particular one. His folders are just like his Japanese tactical knives, built to take anything you can dish out and keep on cutting. The q30 is my everyday pocket carry knife and the kwaiken stays in the drawer of my nightstand. I guess what I'm getting at is, get one for her and one for yourself, you won't be sorry.
