2020 description
Say "A.G. Russell," and you have to immediately say "first," because this living legend was one of the inventors of the modern knife industry. But despite all his awards and achievements, A.G. is first of all a knifemaker. The CRKT production Sting, complete with a custom high-strength nylon fabric/glass filled nylon sheath, is a multipurpose one-piece utility knife that is just about indestructible.

Hot forging is the reason the Sting is so tough. It begins life as an ordinary blank of 1050 carbon steel, similar to the alloy used in traditional Samurai swords, which is first hot forged and then precision ground into final shape. We apply a black non-reflective powder coat finish to resist corrosion.

The spear point blade features two Razor-Sharp cutting edges. The integral handle is contoured to fit the bare or gloved hand nicely and provides heft and balance, with thumb detents for grip. A large lanyard hole is provided, allowing the use of a wrist lanyard, or carry as a neck knife.

Like A.G. Russell himself, the Sting is a tough character that has earned its respect.

I have been collecting knives for a while now. i have around fifty of them. Two of them are the CRKT STING. Out of all of my knives i like these the most. they are good sized, and are easy to carry around and handle. Best knife ever

I have carried a similar knife for years, but when I lost it a while back, I found that the entity which had made it for me had gone out of business, so when I saw this knife in the CRKT line up I immediately ordered one. This knife was very sharp right out of the box and the design is just the style I had been looking for. I know it will serve me well in years to come. My only criticism, or suggestion to the maker for improvement would be to relieve the cutouts in the handle some, or remove them all together, and thereby reduce the handles weight. This would go along ways toward balancing the knife, so that it is not quite so "handle heavy", not to mention take some weight out of the knife overall. The accompanying sheath is very well executed and versatile, and I am happy with it. Thanks

Outstanding knife and one of the best I have owned. It has been my daily carry. Love it and highly recommend to anyone. Learn how to use it if you carry.

This is one of my favorite daily care knives. I carry it inverted and handle up and the sheath is excellent, I also like the multiple carry options the straps etc. offer. I also carry my M18-02 spear point daily and am extremely happy with this design.

Great knife. Small and safe for concealment. I added some cord to the opening at the end of the hilt for better control in case of slippage. Bought 2 for me and my son.

I own about 6 knives right now, this is the knife I wish I could have as my every day carry. Unfortunately Connecticut has a ban on carrying dual edged knives. Probably my favorite aspect of the knife is the sheath, it can be carried in almost any way I need it. You wont get a better knife for the price.

My second CRKT knife, this was purchased as a "carry" knife. The knife is lightweight and feels good in my hand. Don't let the weight fool you though, as soon as you pick this knife up you can tell it is super strong. The sheath is also lightweight and not bulky, the knife clips securely into it and could easily be carried upside down with no worries.
