Hi Michael. I absolutely love the Rhino. Great balance between size and ergonomics. Awesome job, man.
And for those who are wondering about clip options, here is a quick comparison. The left is the standard clip. The middle one is the shorter Deep Carry Clip for Benchmade from MXG Gear. Right is the Armorous Clip for Benchmade & Emerson from Rev Hartz.
Thanks for the compliments, my friend. I'm glad you're enjoying your new knife!
Great picture too, by the way. That clip on the far right is pretty stinking cool!
Hi Michael, Ive read you are the man responsible for these Rhino, ive come to give my thanks and appreciation brother.
Im relatively new to spydercos, my brother got me into Spyderco last year and ive fallen down the hole.
Previous to buying the Rhino ive bought 6 golden models, this is my first non Golden knife and I absolutely love it mate, thank you very much to you, Sal, Eric and all the team.
Its come beautifully finished from the Taichung factory.
Zero blade play, lovely to flick, it even drops down really all the way when closed with one hand.
Love the nice big belly, love the blade thickness, its a bit like my lil native blade thickness wise which I love.
I think you made the exact right decision on a bit of a stronger stouter blade with this smaller Persian style blade design.
The blade shape is what sets your lil ripper apart from other small knives, it makes for an unusual and interesting knife that makes a great little gents knife on steroids.
To be honest the options arnt huge for smaller spydercos, especially compression lock models.
I love small knives and the lil native, one of my fav knives, and so is your Rhino, very stout and strong little knives.
Ive seen the odd review making a few lil nitpicks of this knife, as reviews do for all knives but ive gotta say there's none that bother me.
I love the choil, everything a trade off with knives, if that means a little bit is coming through the compression cutout when closed, totally cool with me.
Also agree with no jumping on the top of the Rhino, just feels and looks cleaner on this design.
Awesome it has a lanyard hole, many small knives don't and its my only negative point on the lil native.
Whats the story with the blade logos being so deeply etched? is that etching or ground out? its a nice touch, both logos look great.
Anybody on the fence about a Rhino, id highly recommend getting one, its a killer and unusual knife that feels nice in the hand, perfect for a gents folder.
So thanks again Michael, Sal and the team, fantastic knife, great design and execution.
Cheers from Sydney.
