Cold Steel Crawford Model 1, 3.5" Blade, Black Zy-Ex Handle - 20MWCB
Wes Crawford, the custom knifemaker, has been a friend of Cold Steel for years, so they were happy to collaborate with him on the creation of an inexpensive version of one of his pricey custom flippers. The result was the Crawford Model 1.
Strongly resembling Wes' custom knife, the blade features a wide saber grind and a strong, sharp point with plenty of belly for cutting and slashing. It's made from Japanese 4034 Stainless and is hollow ground to a thin, razor edge that will cut at the slightest touch.
And, because Wes' flipper is integrated into the tang, it can be opened lightning fast! The handle of the Crawford Model 1 mimics Wes' original's profile and silhouette but is made from a strong (yet economical), glass-reinforced nylon that includes black traction rubber inlays and a low-profile pocket clip. To keep your fingers safe from potential harm, Cold Steel has equipped the Crawford 1 with a leaf spring lock, and a (patent pending) secondary safety mechanism that is extremely resistant to shock and impact
