Young knifemaker Gerry McGinnis is not well known– yet– in the cutlery world. But he will be when the word gets out about his new production CRKT Summa™ knife design. These two locking liner folders offer the materials and quality usually found only on custom knives costing many times as much.
Offered with Razor-Sharp edge or our exclusive combination patented Veff™ Serrations for fastest cutting through rope, twine, netting, and vegetation. As an engineering student in college, Gerry thought these CRKT designs should be named after words that are foremost on his mind right now.
The Summa™ is a sleek, full-size folder with a 3.75” drop point blade of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a very high hollow grind. The Razor-Sharp model 1165 has a satin finished blade, while the Summa™ T 1166K offers tactical black oxide coating for maximum corrosion resistance, with our exclusive combination Veff™ Serrations. For fast either-hand opening, just press the flipper.
Both Summa models feature an open InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, hand-shaped black and blue layered polished Micarta scales, and a rigid Zytel® back spacer. The liners and custom removable stainless steel clip receive a blue titanium nitride coating, for an effect that is cool and understated.
At CRKT, we have never produced a knife based on eye-appeal alone, but the Summa’s graceful and sinuous shape, almost uninterrupted by studs or hardware, is one of the most attractive we have ever manufactured. Everything is just right: look, feel, balance and grip.
