The CRKT Graphite is a Klecker design that melds functionality with innovation. Its 3.06-inch blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is a capable steel perfect for EDC knives, and has a versatile hollow grind.
The spey point blade is something you don't see much these days. It was originally intended for neutering livestock but has since become a solid tip for all-around uses.
Featuring a flipper mechanism, the Graphite opens up quickly and smoothly with either hand. It stays open using the Klecker Lock, which is essentially a modified lockback that uses pressure on the back of the handle to disengage the blade.
The Klecker Lock is what's partially responsible for the interesting handle that's made of 2CR13 stainless steel with G10 overlays for extra grip. The rest of the captivating handle can be attributed to the mind of Glenn Klecker.
Finger grooves make the Graphite feel great in the hand while the flipper mechanism acts as a guard when open. Finishing up the knife is a one-position, tip-down pocket clip.
