More Info on Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT)


For nearly three decades, Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) has relentlessly pursued what’s next. We’re always exploring, experimenting, and pushing the envelope. It’s an endless collaboration with our designers. A constant questioning—“What if you could make a stronger, safer lock?” “Wouldn’t it be cool to revolutionize the way a folding knife deploys? “Why not make our innovations available to all our designers to cross-pollinate ideas?” Our curiosity has made all the difference for industry leading innovations like the Field Strip, Deadbolt®, Kinematic®, and iconic designs like M16®, Minimalist®, and Pilar®.

CRKT Ruger Hollow Point +P Knife Review

Every person who looked at this knife said the same thing: The blade flies out of the handle, with very little coaxing and hardly any repositioning of the hand. This product has accomplished what I have been telling knife makers to do for 20 years.
