RAR File Open Knife Review

RAR File Open Knife - Free Opener opens RAR-archives quickly
A review of RAR File Open Knife by Fernando Ortega

RAR File Open Knife is a RAR extraction utility which only works with RAR files. Apparently it is much faster to use this decompression tool because because it specializes in only one thing: RAR files.

While the user interface of RAR File Open Knife isn't the nicest on the block, it is definitely very easy to use thanks to its drag-and-drop compatibility.

There are two ways to extract RAR files. Firstly, you can drag the RAR file in to the program and it will be decompressed or you can access it via right click in a Windows Explorer window. Either way, they are both very quick.

Even though RAR File Open Knife doesn't support any other file compression formats, the one it does support does really well and extremely fast!

Installation note: During the first few steps of installing RAR File Open Knife on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.

RAR File Open Knife is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. RAR File Open Knife 3.50 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
