How many applications does a quality knife have? If human fantasy is involved, the possible variants are beyond count. A knife is an ultimate tool for survival and bushcraft activities, it can serve as a self-defense weapon, a cooking utensil, a toothpick, maybe even a lockpick - whatever your creative mind comes up with. Based in Tualatin, Oregon, CRKT (Columbia River Knife and Tool) has been providing people with quality instruments since 1994. The company’s recognition came when the CRKT KISS knife was introduced in 1997. The small folding knife immediately became a success: within the opening days of the Shot Show, a year's worth of the products were sold. This laid the foundation for the company’s current reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality fixed blades and folding knives, multi-tools, sharpeners, and carrying systems.
CRKT Folding Knives
If you have ever tried any of CRKT knives, you are aware of an outstanding original design featured in their products. Some knives are the results of experiments with more traditional designs, while others are the fruit of original blueprints. The CRKT pocket knife line includes several knives, each featuring a unique handle configuration and form of the blade. We have quite a few of those, including CRKT Compano, CRKT Cinco, CRKT Overland, and CRKT BT Fighter. Some knives comprise other instruments like screwdrivers, bottle openers, and glass breakers. CRKT Septimo is one of such multi-tools.
The M-16 series is the company’s long-standing best seller. Featuring almost 30 designs, this line of folding knives is currently the brand’s signature product, which shows both in looks and performance. They are also packed with CRKT’s proprietary technologies, like Veff-Serrated edges, Lock Back Safety mechanisms, and the Outburst assisted-opening mechanism.
Here, on Gritr Outdoors, you can find dozens of CRKT fixed blade and folding knives. When performance is a priority, CRKT is a bar setter.
