CRKT Rakkasan Tactical Fixed Blade Knife

PRICE: $119.58
In Stock
SKU:

This mission ready tactical knife was designed by veteran Austin McGlaun as part of CRKT’s Forged by War program. McGlaun was part of the 187th infantry, the first paratroopers to drop into Japan during WWII. Not having a word for paratroopers, the Japanese called these soldiers Rakkasan: “men falling from the sky with umbrellas.” The knife features a full tang clip point blade suited for detail cutting tasks and self-defense. It comes with a Kydex sheath that can be strapped to belts and bags.

Why choose this knife?

  • Recurved blade excels at slicing
  • Tough G10 scales designed to take a beating
  • Black powder coating is covert and non-reflective
  • Full tang provides extra leverage power
  • Grooves in handle scales improve grip
  • 10% of all proceeds go to the Green Beret Foundation

Why not?

  • Recurved blades are difficult to sharpen
  • Black powder coating can create drag on cutting edge
  • Handle does not have a guard

Pro tip:
Recurved blades have a second curve along the cutting edge, creating an S-shape in the middle. This added curvature effectively makes the cutting edge longer and provides a wider degree of cutting angles. This blade shape can be tricky to sharpen though, as it requires continual reorientation of the edge.
