More from CRKT

This no-nonsense CRKT folder gets straight to the point—even though it doesn’t have a point. The hollow-ground reverse tanto blade provides a razor sharp cutting edge and a false point tip. The matte black blade and handle provide a tactical look to this pocket-friendly EDC knife. Jimping on both sides of the handle allows for a secure traditional or reverse grip. Blade access is controlled with a flipper and high-tension liner lock.

Why choose this knife?

  • Blade shape eliminates risk of accidental piercing
  • Black oxide finish hides nicks and scratches
  • Jimping improves blade control
  • Four-way clip allows for ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry
  • Choil increases grip rigidity
  • Flipper allows for fast, one hand opening

Why not?

  • Reverse tanto blade has no tip for piercing
  • Some users find inner handle jimping uncomfortable
  • Hollow ground edge requires frequent re-sharpening

Next level knife: Benchmade Griptilian Black Knife

Pro tip:
A reverse tanto blade, similar to a sheepsfoot or wharncliffe blade, has a flat cutting edge and a dull spine that curves down to form a false point. This shape provides a clean slicing edge without any risk of accidental piercing.
