The handle is composed of glass-filled Nylon, with porcupine-like edges along both sides, which support natural thumb and finger placement along the lower edge and offer a sturdy grip.

The sheath is constructed of hard plastic and can be mounted to a Personal Flotation Device, pack, or belt for quick access.

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


Designed in conjunction with Steve Hacht and Bryce Grey, the Bawadimin Knives Skeletonized Karambit features a paracord friendly handle although it does not come wrapped, and must be customized by the user. Heavy chamfers on the Karambit allow for increased comfortability. Machined from CRU-WEAR steel, the Karambit features a hardness of 61-63 on the Rockwell scale.

The Skeletonized Karambit comes with a custom conceal carry sheath. It’s a great new design to go with an outstanding knife. The integrated ST801 PUP nylon backstraps features a “pull the dot” snap, and allows the sheath to mount securely to a belt, right up against the body.

SHOT Show – CRKT No Bother by Ryan Johnson

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

RMJ Tactical’s Ryan Johnson told us he has a little help in creating some of his designs. Take for instance the upcoming No Bother from CRKT.


Like me, Ryan does a lot with his kids. He told me that one day he and his daughter were out and she sketched a neck knife design out and wrote “No Bother” under it. Ryan asked her what that was about and she said, dead pan, “no one is going to bother you when you have this.” The name stuck along with the overall design.


This full tang neck knife is made from 8Cr13MoV with a 2.1″ blade and overall length of 5.29″ with a non-reflective, black oxide stone wash finish and a reverse tanto tip. Thanks to the non-removable ABS scales it only weights 2.2 oz.

The sheath can be worn several ways including around the neck via Paracord with integrated release safety fob to avoid choking as well as attached to PALS webbing. The sheath retains the blade even when tip up.

SHOT Show – CRKT’s Woods Chogan & Kangee T-Hawk Designed by Ryan Johnson

Monday, March 10th, 2014

CRKT introduced two new Ryan Johnson Tomahawk designs at SHOT Show, the Woods Chogan and Kangee T-Hawks.


You probably know Ryan Johnson from his own RMJ Tactical. He’s done a couple of designs for them in the past such as last year’s Chogan and Kangee T-Hawks that differ from these new models because of handle material. Weighing in at 2 lbs, 1.4 oz, these new Woods versions feature a 19.13″ long handle of Tennessee hickory, sealed with lacquer.

The heads of both models are made from 1055 steel and measure just over 4″. The Chogan offers a Hammer, while the Kangee incorporates a Spike on the head.
