Founded in 1994 in Oregon, Columbia River Knife and Tool, more commonly known ad CRKT, builds knives and tools to inspire and endure. The company collaborates with world-famous designers and avid outdoorsmen to create well-made tools that are built to stand up to the toughest tasks and environments.
The M4 is a classic knife worthy of hall of fame status. It was custom designed by legendary knife maker Kit Carson, and this EDC-friendly version is a worthy addition to any collection. The lightweight folding knife features a white bone scale handle and contrasting black G10 bolsters, along with a stainless steel blade with a high-hollow-grind drop point in a bead-blast finish with a razor-sharp edge. The knife also benefits from the outburst mechanism which springs the blade fully open after it's been opened to about 30 degrees for smooth, fast action. Built for the long haul, the M4-02 also has bronze bearings, and dual stainless steel liners, one locking, and a stainless back spacer.
Blade Length: 3.25" / Blade Thickness: 0.121" / Closed Length: 3.75" / Weight: 3.3 oz
Designed by legendary knife maker Ken Onion, the Homefront EDC Knife from CRKT is the first from the company to let you completely disassemble and reassemble it without any tools. When the knife is closed, simply pull the front release away from the blade and spin the release wheel away from the pivot to discharge the aluminum handle and gain access to the interior. This innovative design lets you clear away any nastiness the stainless steel drop point blade has picked up throughout the day, ensuring the knife is always ready for duty.

Get maximum utility for minimal weight with the award-winning CRKT Snap-Lock Knife. Designed by Virginia's Ed Van Hoy, it has a stainless steel wishbone frame that greatly reduces weight while fully protecting the sharpened edge. To use the 2.5-inch, triple point serrated HRC blade, simply push down on the cam lever and rotate 180º to lock it in place; reverse the process to close. An ambidextrous clip can hold bills or attach to a pocket, and the included quick-release paracord lanyard contrasts well with the bead-blasted finish while offering another carry option.
