Columbia River Crawford P.K., Red PVC Handle, Leather Sheath
Columbia River Knife & Tool has a long history of producing unusual production knives based on the custom models of leading knifemakers. But when Pat and Wes Crawford showed us their custom Crawford Plier Knife, we were so surprised that we quickly agreed to make a production version, the CRKT Crawford P.K.
It is a hefty fixed blade with a wide split handle coated with red PVC that resembles a pair of electrical pliers. We forge it from a single piece of 420J2 stainless steel that is 0.124" thick, resulting in the toughest work knife we can imagine. The modified drop point blade is broad and only 3.25" long, resulting in an exceptionally strong blade for rugged tasks.
The width of the plier-style handles, with finger choils, gives excellent control of the knife, and is ideal for those with large hands.
A leather sheath completes the package, designed to look right at home on tool belts.
This is not a delicate display knife. What you see is what you get: a man-sized knife ready to cut wood, rope, wire, carpet or sheetrock and hold an edge. It is remarkably low priced for a quality tool. So quit staring and get to work.

Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT), is a Tualatin, Oregon-based manufacturer of knives, tools, and accessories founded in 1994.
CRKT means Quality. All CRKT knives and tools are built incorporating the most advanced equipment and production systems available, and quality is controlled from beginning to end. Knives are built the way they should be built�?without compromising quality in any part of their creation. CRKT accessories are crafted to the same standards as the knives, so that each sheath, for example, lives up to the customers�? high expectations.
Sport & Work Knives
CRKT continues to "think outside the box" by seeking out new and unique designs and mechanisms, just when everyone in the industry thinks they have seen it all. For example, the company is introducing the tiny McGinnis Shrimp, the
Gekkota Pocket and Golf, the ExiTool, Ta-Bar Tool, Norfork Diver and Whitewater, and Klecker NIRK�? all exciting and unusual. At the same time, it continues to broaden it�?s traditional knife models, including for the first time, Classic pocket knives, as well as the Centofante Tribute, Carson M4-02 series, and the Delegate and Vertex lines.
More natural and premium materials.
CRKT is continuing to specify the natural and premium materials that are common in the best custom knives, including more knives
with layered Micarta, G10, stag, jig bone, white bone, ram horn, and hardwoods such as thuya root, cocobolo, ebony, walnut, and burl.
