In June 2006, the “185° Rgt. Ricognizione e Acquisizione Obiettivi” (Target Acquisition Regiment) airborne “FOLGORE” (185° RAO) entrusted to Extrema Ratio the development of this unique knife - the Extrema Ratio Extrema Ratio Rao Desert, which fits the unit’s specific operational duties. This resulted in the RAO: not so much a knife as a compact survival & field knife, with a heavy and dependable blade.


Its very reliable locking system, assisted by an extra safety bar, effectively turns this folder into a fixed blade knife. The opening and closing is best performed with both hands due to its size and weight. The extra safe device is a steel pin to be hand-screwed through two holes by the guard section of the massive Anticorodal aluminum handle – its presence between blade and hand also acting as a real psychological boon. This knife will not close during use.


The sheath is an essential part of this system. It holds a diamond-plate sharpener and enables the user to carry the knife either in open position, held in place by a cord and two clips, or closed, inside the front pocket. The sheath can be attached to tactical vests or common belts, being MOLLE system-compliant.
