Summit2 description
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 this popular line the 14K Summit series.

The Long's Peak and Mt. Rainier are the middle size of the series, with 2.875" blades. They are ideal utility knives, large enough to undertake serious cutting tasks.

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.

Double-grooved ambidextrous thumb studs allow you to comfortably open or close the blade with a single, smooth, one-handed motion, aided by the 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. *U.S. Patent No. 5,596,808

I have the MT. Rainier. I just got is but I love it so far. I have had many knives from CRKT and not one has failed on me.I even have their phone case which outlasted any other "tough" case I've had. This knife feels great in hand and has an unbelievably smooth opening. the clip is very sturdy as well. I even trust it to stay in my pack pocket

I, too, have the Mt. Rainier. I have many Cricket knives and this is by far one of my favorites. I needed a knife in a hurry and stopped by my local store. I was skeptical at first because I didn't have a lot to choose from nor had I researched it before I made my purchase, so I settled for this one. I'm glad I did because I trust Cricket knives for quality and craftsmanship...yes I know the aren't always made in the USA...There's no settling with this knife. The construction is sturdy. The knife feels well balanced, hefty in weight for its size, and has a quickness when opening that I wasn't expecting. For the price I may just go back to get a second one - I like it that much The only drawback to this knife is that the clip isn't movable - I can't switch it to a different position.
