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,

lightweight package.

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

chopping onions.

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.
