It is Tuesday, July 16 or better known in these parts as Day 46 of our 100 Knives in 100 Days Giveaway. Today’s featured knife is the Steel Will Roamer 375.
If you want to win this knife, you must Register for a free account, and leave a comment on our official contest thread (here).
The Steel Will Roamer 375 is part of a series of Roamer models in various sizes. They feature TPE handles and either D2 or 9Cr18MoV steel with through tangs. With prices in the $50-$80 range, these knives are great options in the high-budget, entry mid-range outdoor knife niche.
Stats (as provided by Steel Will):
Sheath material: Nylon
Lock Type: Fixed Blade – Through Tang
Full length: 11.57″
Blade length: 6.4″
Blade thickness: 0.16″
This is one comfortable knife. You can hammer-grip the heck out of it with no hot spots, or adjust your grip for more detailed work. Even the generous jimping does not cause undue discomfort. I couldn’t do anything but grip the knife under running water, but the grooves drain water away, allowing for solid contact with the solid portions of the handle.
The grind is flat and high. The geometry looks slicey as heck and the knife is razor sharp.
As someone who spent almost 20 years as a fishing guide, this is a knife I would have been happy to have carried.
Since I can’t fully test the knife, I have been relying on reviews from trusted outside sources. In this case, Gear Junkie did a thorough job on the R300:
There are a couple of good YouTube Reviews as well.
We would like to thank Steel Will for providing us with both this Roamer 375 and a folding Cutjack which we gave away earlier in the contest.
