From the beginning, CRKT® has been driven by a purpose: to bring useful technological advancements and entirely new product concepts to market. This has led to partnerships with the world's best designers and custom knifemakers. The result is products that are visually stunning and technically superior, featuring innovations that have defined the cutting edge of the industry, like the Automated Liner Safety system, the IKBS™ Ball Bearing Pivot System, and the OutBurst® assist opening mechanism. CRKT® currently owns 15 patents and patents pending.
Whether for everyday carry, tactical missions, hunting and fishing, even survival situations, CRKT® knives, tools, and lifestyle accessories are purpose-built to instill confidence in those who proudly carry them. Every day they are put to the test on the job, in the woods, on the mountain, and even on the battlefield by people who value preparedness and demand performance. If it's not up to their standards, then it's not up to ours.
