An Overview of my new CRKT Knives

If you travel, camp or backpack as much as I do, you know how essential it is to have the right tools…be it a tent, sleeping bag or a knife.  A good knife is one of those absolutely essential tools needed for backpacking and camping on the road. I have owned a CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool) for a couple of years now and have really enjoyed it.  One of the cool aspects of many of their foldable pocket knives is the finger flipper, which makes it super easy to quickly open the blade with one hand.

While I love my CRKT pocket knife, I knew I needed a couple additional variations, so I recently got two of their A.B.C. (All Bases Covered) knifes, one with a blunt tip that’s great for prying or digging. Both the A.B.C. knives come with a sheath that allows you to carry the knives in various fashions, such as on a diving buoyancy compensator, pocket flaps, webbing (like a backpack strap), with dive leg strap, on a PFD, or on a neck cord.

CRKT produces a large range of knives for virtually any use, from tactical, survival to hunting and fishing.  I’m always amazed at how innovative these guys are. CRKT knives are moderately priced and a good value for the quality.

Let me know if you have any questions, or, you can check out their website at  BTW, a lot of the product overviews on their site have videos, which I find very helpful in making a decision on which knife to buy.
