CRKT proves a lightweight folder can do heavy-duty jobs.

Revolutionizing the everyday carry category, the company announced it is releasing the Graphite™ knife designed by Glenn Klecker.

A two-tone handle finish made with a titanium nitride coating and brushed stainless steel makes the knife look like a sports car. Yet it goes through tasks like a bulldozer with a modified drop point blade that’s also available with Veff Flat Top Serrations®. Klecker managed to shave the weight with an open build skeletal frame, but the knife still comes up big on safety with the integrated patented Klecker Lock.

“This knife has a real ‘pop’ both to the eye and in the hand,” says Klecker, “but it still gives you the safety you need.”

An engineer and former Captain in the United States Marine Corps during Operation Desert Storm, Klecker knows a thing or two about lightweight knives that are safe and can go the distance.

The Graphite™ is a great beefy knife that makes 4.4 ounces go a long way.

The Graphite™ knife manufacturers suggested retail price is $69.99.
