This listing is for a cosmetic blemish seconds 7085 The Natural knife. As implied, these have cosmetic imperfections and are discounted. Great deal on an awesome spring assisted folder.
Pat and Wes Crawford, custom knife makers in West Memphis, Arkansas, have produced many successful folder designs for CRKT over the years, many with mid-level blade steels and Zytel® scales. Here’s our new idea: let’s make a Crawford folder series that is as close to a custom knife as possible, using premium blade steel and natural materials.
Logically, we decided to call it the Natural™ series. Available in two sizes, these are extremely heavy-duty frame-lock folders with our patented* lightning-fast OutBurst™ assisted opening.
The Natural™. At 10.4 ounces, this is a big hunk of knife, with a 3.88” blade of premium 8Cr13MoV polished stainless steel and stainless steel liners so thick that it qualifies as a frame-lock folder. The blade can only be called a “Crawford Marauder clip point,” with a scalloped top edge and dual ramped Crawford-style thumb studs for opening. Just nudge either thumb stud outward approximately 30 degrees, and the OutBurst mechanism springs the blade open with a satisfying “click.”
The stainless steel back spacer receives file work like the finest customs. And the scales are hand-shaped white bone with black G10 bolsters and a removable satin stainless steel pocket/gear clip. When it comes to grip, this folder has it all: a full-size handle, butt pommel, two deep finger choils and thumb friction grooves on the spine.
