2020 description
This Blade Was Meant for Walking.

A fixed blade tactical knife featuring two edges and one solid piece of hot forged steel, it knows its place—clipped to your boot.

Crafted by A.G. Russell of Rogers, AR, The Sting™ displays one of the inventors of the modern knife industry's attention to detail. After all, despite all his awards and achievements, he is first and foremost a custom knifemaker.

A tough spear point blade begins life as an ordinary blank of 1050 carbon steel, similar to the alloy used in traditional Samurai swords. It's then hot forged and precision ground into its final shape. Dual cutting edges give you twice the protection and double the attitude. We then apply a black non-reflective powder coat finish to resist corrosion in tactical environments that are as tough as you are.

Grab hold of the handle and feel how it's perfectly contoured to fit your bare or gloved hand. Notice its heft, balance and thumb detents for grip. There's even a large lanyard hole so you can use it with a wrist lanyard, or carry it as a neck knife. When it comes to defense, this blade means business.

The CRKT Sting™ comes complete with a custom nylon-stitched sheath with a glass reinforced nylon insert and a strapping option for versatile gear attachments or a clip for attaching it to your belt, pack or boot. Wherever it sits on your gear, it won't be sitting there for long.

Strap it down and take it into any situation. It's ready to battle with any environment.

I love this knife It appears that handle has been cast around the tang, making a seamless and durable construction. It's got a little bit of heft to it, yet is well balanced and fits comfortably in the hand. As a woman with smaller hands, it's hard to find knives that fit me comfortably, but this one does. It's small enough to carry concealed or openly, and the versatility of the sheath is wonderfully useful. The spear point makes it very versatile and it gets wickedly sharp. A great little knife

As an unarmed security guard a few years ago, I carried this as an extreme, last minute back-up. Such a great blade. It's small, wicked sharp and light weight but carries well with a little practice. I once wore it under a dress suit for a suit and tie event. I was on my feet all night and so the straps dug into my leg and left some burn marks. Lesson learned. Not too loose, not too tight is the way to go with it. It conceals extremely well, though. Absolutely love this knife.

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.
