The CRKT Avant folding knife is designed to be your go-to everyday carry knife. The spear point blade edge is made from satin-finished stainless steel (8Cr14MoV) for maximum durability and reliability. The blade is 3.175 inches long, and the knife is a total of 7.5 inches long when fully open. Its compact size makes it easy to carry, while its solid construction ensures that it is built for hard use.
The folding knife includes a flipper opening and a fast, smooth IKBS (lubed ball bearings) pivot to deploy the blade at lightning speed. The Avant also features a thumb disk for those who prefer a more deliberate, manual open. Once deployed, the blade is locked in place with a sturdy liner lock for one-handed closing capability.
The woven carbon fiber handles on the Avant are not only aesthetically pleasing but also provide a comfortable and secure grip while in use. The knife also comes equipped with a bronze pocket clip and pivot detail for a stylish touch.
