Unlike many skeletonized flat blades, the Columbia River Knife & Tool Dogfish is graceful, gives a secure grip, and also has that dogfish face at the pommel which turns out to be—a lanyard hole and bottle opener. It incorporates a secure finger choil and friction grooves at the thumb spine and near the butt.
It’s E.D.M. wire cut from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel and the CRKT bevel grinds the 2.25″ modified Wharncliffe blade, and finally, given a fine bead-blast finish and add a razor-sharp edge.
You also get a custom-fitted six-eyelet Kydex sheath that grips the knife securely for inverted carry with the neck chain included, or with the CRKT MercHarness. It’s a useful, friendly minimal knife that’s a great value.
This knife normally retails for $29.99 but for a limited time Extreme Outfitters is offering it for only $14.99.
