Columbia River Lift Off, OutBurst, Fire safe, ComboEdge Pocket Knife
This new sport and work folder series embodies everything that we look for in a CRKT product: rugged construction, premium blade steel, good grip and balance, striking design and superfast Assisted Opening. All these qualities come together in a knife group that is also very competitively priced. We think it's a line that's really going to take off, so we're calling it the Lift Off.
This is a knife for those who want a bit of style and shine in their personal carry. At its core is our InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, with textured black Zytel® scales. The left scale features a stainless steel insert with a bright brushed finish and deep arrow pattern. In addition, both liners feature fine friction grooves at the finger contact zone.
The blade is a satin-finished modifed drop point design with a notched and swedged top edge and a high hollow grind. Blade steel is our favorite premium stainless steel alloy, AUS 8. The Lift Off is available in both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edged models.
To give instant one-hand opening, we have incorporated our patented (1) OutBurst Assisted Opening with the patent-pending (2) Fire Safe mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Just just press and nudge for instant lift off. It is both very fast, and very safe, because simply pressing the Fire Safe button does not open the knife. You must both press down and nudge the blade outward deliberately before the Lift Off will open.
Lift Off. The larger Lift Off models are full-size work and sport knives with 4.88" handles and 3.50" blades. They're solid, heavy-duty knives at 5.2 ounces.
Lift Off models include a removable polished stainess steel clip.
All in all, the Lift Off series is a remarkable package of engineering, design, and precision manufacturing. We did the work; all you have to do is count backward from ten and visit your local cutlery retailer.
