Hey all of you CRKT fans! Harry’s spring shipments have arrived with some awesome new toys for you! For those of you not so familiar with CRKT ( Columbia River Knife & Tool), here’s what you need to know:
1. They make innovative knives and tools for sport, work, and professional uses.
2. All of their designs are purpose driven.
3. Their amazing custom designs are offered to customers at an affordable price without compromising quality.
While looking through the goodies, there were some stand out products that we want everyone to know about. Anyone who knows anything about CRKT has heard about the popular Eat’N Tool. The designers at CRKT wanted to come up with something even more popular and function, so now we have the Eat’N Tool XL. So what’s the difference between this tool and original? Well firstly, the handle is longer making it easier to hold on to. The spoon is also larger. The XL version also features a can opener, an essential when out on the trail. The XL was made with all of the original features too like the bottle opener, 2 hex wrenches, carabiner, and driver.
Getting into the knives, the Otanashi noh Ken Clip Point Folding Knife is definitely the one for you if you’re into a more streamlined looked. It’s almost like carrying around a mini samurai sword rather than a pocket knife. The black coating on thee blade provides corrosion resistance and adds to the sleek, tactical look. The overall length of this knife is just over 10 inches and the blade length is about 4.5 inches. This is a pretty good sized knife, but the way it was designed makes it pretty easy to conceal.
Another cool knife that came in has been designed by the world renown knife designer, Ken Onion. That alone made us extremely interested in the Black Foresight Combo Edge Knife. This knife is a perfect example of how for follows function. Designed to offer maximum control, the handle is made with cold forged aluminum and finger shaped grooves, providing comfort. The mechanisms inside the knife make opening and closing the knife extremely smooth.
These are just a few of the great, innovative knives and tools offered from CRKT. Check the whole collection of CRKT knives and tools so you can get the perfect one to suit your needs!
Designed by world-renowned knife designer, Ken Onion, the Kershaw Leek is your ultimate sleek and slim, everyday carry knife that is super sharp! The Leek has the ability to cut through a variety of materials without any issues. Wires, tape, paper, and cardboard are just a few of the things we’ve used the Leek for and it’s held up very well.
The comfortable handle designed for the Leek fits most people’s hands fairly well and provides enough grip when using. There is also a pocket clip that Kershaw has added to the Leek that allows you to carry it either tip up or tip down. Although, if you mount it tip up, a small portion of the handle sticks out, it is still comfortable to carry and stays concealed.
One of the greatest features on the Leek is the Kershaw Speed Safe system. Extremely fast, almost as soon as your thumb applies pressure to the thumbstuds, the blade will shoot out and be ready to use. It was designed to be a one-handed knife so you are able to open the blade with only one hand.
The locking mechanism that Kershaw has used for the Leek is extremely durable and will keep the knife from opening accidentally which is an awesome safety feature.
Lastly, as the Leek is proudly made in the USA, we’re proud to recommend a durable, inexpensive, everyday carry knife that anyone can afford!
