Rok Survival Knife
By HX Outdoors
Full Video Test And Review

In this knife review I am looking at the ROK Survival Knife by HX Outdoors - In my knife reviews I try to be as accurate and honest as possible, highlighting both the good and the bad features of the knife.

Right from the start I must say I am very impressed with this knife.

As far as a bushcraft styled survival knife goes, this Rok definitely ticks all the boxes - it is a very well thought out knife, that's equally well made.

* Main Features Of The Rok Survival Knife

The Rok's design is that of a typical bushcraft style knife, in both looks and shape, except for the appearance where it is presented in a very tactical looking way.

The dark grey, almost black colour runs throughout the knife with a matching D2 steel,drop point blade in the dark coating, and the handle sporting the  dark coloured G10 scale.

This knife feels very solid and really does fit nicely in your hands.  The firm G10s are lightly machined to give you good grip, and all the time I have used it, there has been no slipperyness. The Rok also has a lanyard hole for adding a cord for extra safety if you wish.

* Where To Buy 
The Rok Survival Knife

The Rok is manufactured in China.
Some of you may be fidgeting nervously now - with sweaty palms at the mention of a knife made in China..!
I used to be like that too, but don't worry, your in safe hands here - I conquered my fear of the words 'Made In China', and especially when it's preceded by 'This Knife is'.

But it's not that bad folks, especially when you consider the vast amount of 'so called' high end knives like Buck, Sog, Gerber, who all have knives made there too - yes, it's a fact, check it out. Big manufacturers having their knives made in China is very cost effective for them, as they can hype up the price once they brand with their name.

Materials are the same, if not better. Manufacture is top notch too - so grow a pair and man up.

This is a very good knife, nuff said..!


Steve Hart UK Prepper

Hope you found this review useful - the Rok certainly is a very good knife offering great value for your money. 
Delivery can vary - I have had gear shipped to me in as little as 4 days, just check the shipping date thats displayed on their product page, and then add a week. Works for me.

Overall, a very solid, strong and well made knife that I use a lot. It takes abuse all the time and a knife well worth considering
Happy Prepping Folks,  Steve

    Had mine for 6 months now and its great.
    Worth twice the price.
    Better than any Gerber crap.

    “so grow a pair and man up”… ha ha, good one.
    China rules most survival gear now anyway, knives especially.

    id never buy some overpriced knife just for the name.

    Hi all, recommend this knife. It does everything Steve says in the video.
    Mine took a while to get delivered but well worth it.
    Needed stropping to get a razor sharp blade, but holds edge well. The diamond grit sharpener is Ok for rough sharpening in the field though.
    Havnt had any problems with it at all, even though Ive tried to kill it!!!!!

    Hi, one of the best value for money knives around.
    Had mine for a while and its Bomb proof.

  5. Monkey Nuts

    This knife is the nuts. For £35 its got all the features of a expensive knife and is super tough.
    Use mine a lot.
