Here’s the new CRKT® Crossover™. We think it’s the world’s best
camp/kitchen shears/knife combination. It’s perfect for hunting camp,
fishing camp, hiking camp, RV kitchen, and yacht galley.
When you want to travel light, here’s a world-class solution that would have delighted Marco
Polo. It’s called the Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) Crossover™, and it’s a
premium-quality shears, kitchen knife, bottle opener, lid lifter/screwdriver, and grill cleaner.
Yes, others have tried this combination, but none have done it as well in a functional,
In the outdoors, heavy-duty shears come in handy. On a tossing boat in the open ocean, they
are far safer than a knife when venting your salmon or steelhead catch. And they are essential
when cleaning your duck, pheasant, grouse, goose or turkey. The Crossover has a special
boning notch on the shears, which makes preparing birds much easier and faster.
Later, when you need a camp kitchen knife, simply twist the Crossover handle to release the
scissors pair, press the flexible scissors finger loop back into the handle, and you have a
quality Razor-Sharp 5.5” knife capable of slicing and dicing your next meal. It’s a chef’s knife
without compromise— well balanced, perfectly sized for every chore from slicing steaks to
The Crossover also has a jar and bottle opener, plus an extended lid lifter/screwdriver that
has dozens of uses around the camp, from opening jars and bottles to tightening screws.
The Crossover is built with full-tang high-carbon stainless steel frame underlying the
knife/scissors, with ergonomic injection-molded Zytel® handles. The scissors finger loop is
made of flexible TPR with a stainless steel strap core for long life.
Unlike conventional shears, the Crossover can be fully cleaned while disassembled, so
nothing collects at the pivot point.
You also have a precision scissors which can be handy if you suddenly need to trim
clothing, tents or sails.
As a bonus, the Crossover also has a unique semicircular notch near the shears tip which is
designed as a grill scraper.
On the trail, the Crossover has some limitations. It won’t fill out your tag, it won’t dry your
socks by the campfire, and it won’t stay up all night to watch for bears. But other than that, it’s
the perfect outdoor companion with an MSRP of only $39.99. The deluxe model 5006 is
available with a leather sheath for an MSRP of $49.99.
