Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A.— January 15, 2009

The CRKT® 14K Summit™ line continues to reach new heights.

These are advanced designs for serious sportsmen. Rugged. Strong.

All metal. Engineered for peak performance.

Sometimes your life depends on the tools you select—tools such as your pitons, ice axe,

crampons and knife. Because climbers regard reaching the summits of the 14,000 ft.

North American peaks as the pinnacle of achievement, we named our models the 14K

Summit™ series. This proven line continues to reach new heights in popularity.

At Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) we began with our powerful InterFrame

locking liner construction in an easily cleaned open build, with nickel chrome plated zinc alloy

scales featuring an aircraft-style drilled “skeleton” design. Weight is reduced without

compromising the exceptional strength. The dual liners are 420J2 stainless steel. Handles are

designed with an extended guard, generous size and bead-blast finish to give you extra

gripping power. Friction grooves at the lock and on the blade spine improve grip in wet and

icy conditions.

The high-carbon, 420J2 stainless steel blades feature a rugged modified drop point shape

and bead-blast finish. Blade grinds are engineered to retain maximum thickness at the tip and

through the length of the spine. This blade is built for real work. Triple-Point™ Serrations are

available on all sizes.

Integrated into the design is the patented* LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts your

folder into a virtual fixed blade when the lever is slid forward— very reassuring when you are

using your knife for difficult and tiring tasks.

The Mt. Whitney and Denali feature hefty 3.50” blades. The Long’s Peak and Mt.

Rainier offer 2.875" blades, while the Pike’s Peak and Mt. Shasta are more pocketable

models with 2.375” blades.

Double-grooved ambidextrous thumb studs allow you to comfortably open or close the

blade with a single, smooth, one-handed motion, aided by lubrous washers at the blade

pivot which guarantee continued smoothness.

All fasteners are Torx®, proven superior in initial assembly and owner maintenance, such as

tightening the pivot screw for proper blade tension after years of heavy, sustained work loads.

The convenient stainless steel clothing/gear clip is easily removable, attached with three

Torx fasteners.

In designing this series, we set out to reach the summit of tough, strong folding knives. It’s

all about excellence and achievement. If you’re comparing all-alloy, multipurpose knives,

we’ve set the standard. We trust you’ll agree. (more)
