    I received, as a gift, a Rapid River Drop Point. I am unfamiliar with the brand and was wondering if anyone here could shed some light on them. I do have to say that this is one of the sharpest "factory edge" that I have ever seen.

    Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with them myself, but I liked the website. Good looking knives. I wouldn't call them factory knives, though.

    I like that axe.

    You're right. I think you could say that they are semi-production. It is a very nice knife that I was given.

    Rapid River knives was started by former Marble arms employees when the big changes started at Marbles. They were originally known as Wolverine, but had to change their name because someone else owned a trademark on the Wolverine name.

    I have one of their knives a got a few years ago, and, while I haven't used it much, it seems to be a well made knife. My understanding is that it is run by ex-Marble's employees (from when they still were marked "Gladestone"). My knife has the 52-100 steel, which is one of my favorites.

    Yes, and Bark River knives are made about 15 miles from Rapid River.

    Hey skeetshooter, welcome to Bladeforums. I'd give that Rapid River knife to your brother-in-law. I heard he likes knives.
