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.

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.
