Blade Show 2014 – CRKT

Saturday, June 7th, 2014


Designed by Trip Felton, the Hook & Loop Tool is my favorite new product at Blade Show. Why? Because literally everyone who reads SSD uses hook & loop, whether it’s Velcro brand or an alternative, on their kit, and it gets dirty!


The folding Hook & Loop Tool features a wire brush for the hook, removable nylon brush for the loop which also can be used to clear the wire brush side as well as a boot pick to clean out your tread.


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.

SHOT Show – CRKT – PARA-SAW Survival Bracelet

You see survival bracelets made from 550 cord everywhere these days so it takes something a little different to catch my eye. The new PARA-SAW Survival Bracelet from CRKT did just that. In addition to a tungsten carbide coated stainless steel wire saw concealed in a plastic sleeve that is woven into the bracelet’s 550 cord, CRKT has introduced 4 Stokes Paracord Bracelet Accessories.


The accessories can be slid unto most bracelet configurations and combine various capabilities including Compass & LED, Compass & Fire Starter, Bottle Opener and the LED-Compass & Fire Starter model seen below.

Extreme Outfitters Offering CRKT Dogfish Neck Knife at 50% off

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

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.
