1st Look - 2014 Quartermaster Roper EDC Knives

 The new 2014 Mr. Roper Knives by Quartermaster Knives are QTRM5TR's latest forey into the genre of EDC Knives.  
The Roper knife series are available in your choice of Tanto or clip point blade styles. 

Modeled after Warren Thomas' timeless 2.5 design, the QTRM5TR QSE-6TT is a titanium frame lock folder that is Quartermaster's new "King of EDC." Mr. Roper is their lightest, most pocket friendly design to date and it's a pleasure to hold and to carry.

Jared West, founder of Quartermaster Knives, names his knives after characters on popular TV series from his youth. Since this series only has three models, they got named after Roper Tanto, Mr. Roper and Mr. Furley. 


The 3.0" blade is a functional shape and the slim Titanium handle is very comfortable in the hand. 
Quartermaster Knives hope with this new take on a classic design is to shed light on QTRM5TR's legitimacy as a producer of fine cutlery for all applications, not just "hard-use."

The handle edges have been beveled for added comfort in hand and it rides comfortable in the pocket with the tip up pocket clip orientation.

Overall, the Roper knives are solid, well-built EDC knives that are so lightweight you'll want to carry them everyday.  The price point is excellent, especially considering that these knives are made in the USA and have solid titanium handles and premium CPM-154 blades.

The Quartermaster Roper Knives are produced in extremely limited quantities, those who wait too long will miss the opportunity of owning one of these super knives!
