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 CRKT® locking liner safety. The safety sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use. To engage the safety, push the manual safety lever forward. To close the knife, pull the manual lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. Many CRKT® folders feature this innovative safety system.

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 the bearings 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 workloads.

The convenient stainless steel clothing/gear clip is plated and 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.áá

Available in clampacks as Mt. Shasta 6611NC and Mt. Rainier 6612NC.
