Barry Gallagher’s popular CRKT® Badger™ assisted opener features
our Fire Safe™ actuation as well as our patented OutBurst® assist.
You don’t have to be a rock star to afford this Barry Gallagher Badger™ folder by
Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®).
As you know, Barry Gallagher is well known for his award-winning high-end custom art
knives. So we had a special challenge in producing Barry’s Badger™ design at a quality level
that would satisfy him, while keeping the price low enough to satisfy you.
The Badger features our patented OutBurst® assisted opening with the patent-pending* Fire
Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be
opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb
stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use.
Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and
fast access that we have ever seen in sport and work folders.
This popular folder uses high-carbon 5Cr15MoV stainless steel for the 2.85” blade, and has
a nonreflective black oxide coating for maximum corrosion resistance. We call the blade
shape a “notched drop point” with a high hollow grind and a strong center spine. The result is
a blade with excellent slicing ability and good penetrating ability with minimum weight.
Our InterFrame locking liner build has two stainless steel liners, also black oxide finished,
and a black aluminum back spacer. For the Badger scales, we have created a special layered
green and black textured G10, which is CNC machined top and bottom to aid grip. As a final
touch, we added a removable custom stainless steel clip.
The effect from this knife is indistinguishable from the best custom builds. You can tell
your friends it’s a Barry Gallagher design, but you don’t have to mention the very
affordable price of only $59.99 MSRP.
