Columbia River - Crawford/Kasper Folder Combo Edge
Bob Kasper, writer and knife use instructor, has a very clear vision of what must go into an effective tactical work tooland what must not. Period. Working with custom knife maker and Knifemakers' Guild member Pat Crawford to translate his ideas into a folder, the two came up with the ultimate custom folding knife. We at CRKT have slavishly translated every dimension and specification into a very affordable personal confidence builder. In addition, we've added the patented* Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS®) to provide lock security under extreme use.
Construction is an extremely heavy duty build, with the thickest stainless steel liners we have ever used. The result is an authoritative feel, with perfect balance at the deep index finger choil.
The handle shape is classic Kasper profile, ample without being cumbersome. The textured black Zytel® scales are flat with no swell so the knife won't print in the pocket, and to make drawing smoother. The thumb scallop on the left scale acts as an index point for the initial grip and draw, is also a ramp leading down to the thumb stud, and helps the index finger secure a more positive grip. The thumb ramp has aggressive friction grooves to ensure thumb purchase under slippery conditions.
The blade is a stout, modified clip point of AUS 6M stainless steel, double hollow ground and bead blast finished to cut reflectivity. Both Razor-Sharp and Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated blades are available. The thumb ramp features double thumb studs for ambidextrous use.
Construction is our industry-leading InterFrame build: 420J2 double stainless steel liners, 6061 T6 hard anodized aluminum back spacer, Torx® fasteners and Teflon® bearings for buttery smooth opening and closing.
The gray Teflon custom plated clothing/gear clip is mounted on the leading edge of the handle, resulting in a low-in-the-pocket storage.
