You've got a little friend in the CRKT Amicus Compact. Literally meaning "friend" or "comrade", the word Amicus is an apt name for this pocket-friendly version of the Amicus Folding Outdoor Knife. This burly folder features a powerful 3-inch tanto blade, designed to accompany its user into the most brutal corners of nature's playground. A stonewash finish protects the blade from scuffs and scratches, and gives the knife a sleek low-profile look. The ergonomic two-tone handle uses G10 and stainless steel to provide simultaneous power and grip.

Why choose this knife?

  • Compact size for convenient storage and carry
  • Minimalist design ideal for outdoor use
  • Ambidextrous thumb hole opener
  • Stainless steel frame lock provides reliable lockup
  • G10 scale provides a solid grip in wet and messy conditions
  • 2 position pocket clip can be worn tip-up or tip-down

Why not?

  • Compact blade has less leverage power
  • Cr13Mov steel requires more frequent sharpening
  • Tanto blade has a shallow belly

Pro tip:
The tanto knife blade takes its name and shape from the traditional Japanese tanto sword, originally designed to pierce armor in battle. The front edge of the blade meets the back at an angle, rather than a curve, maintaining its spine thickness almost all the way to the tip. This removes the blade's belly, but creates an extra strong point, ideal for thrust cuts and piercing.
