Young knife maker 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 Tuition™ knife design. This 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 Tuition™ is a compact and powerful work knife that is just right for shop and outdoor tasks. The broad sheepsfoot 2.88” blade has a high hollow grind that gives fast cutting, accurate trimming and excellent tip strength. Blade steel is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel in a satin finish.
One-hand opening is fast using the friction-grooved flipper, which also acts as a blade guard when open. Our stainless steel InterFrame build is exceptionally rigid, and features hand-shaped black and green layered polished Micarta® scales. While stubby, the Tuition handle is shaped for grip, swelling at the palm and offering a deep finger choil that transitions into the flipper blade guard, plus thumb friction grooves. The custom stainless steel pocket/gear clip in satin finish is removable.
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.
