The CRKT® production version of Tom Krein’s Dogfish™ fixed blade

neck knife and sheath reaches a broad user base.

Tom Krein is a young custom knifemaker who has created quite a stir with his Mid Tech

Dogfish neck knife. It has proven to be the perfect affordable Columbia River Knife &

Tool® (CRKT®) production knife, and it has reached a broad range of users.

Tom has a great sense of style, so unlike many skeletonized flat blades, the Dogfish

is graceful, gives a secure grip, and also has that dogfish face at the pommel which turns

out to be—a lanyard hole and bottle opener!

This is a knife that is large enough to be useful for many daily cutting tasks. It has a

secure finger choil and friction grooves at the thumb spine and near the butt.

We E.D.M. wire cut it from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, bevel grind

the 2.25” modified Wharncliffe blade, give it a fine bead-blast finish and add a Razor-

Sharp or Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge.

You also get a custom-fitted Kydex® sheath with six eyelets that grips the knife

securely for inverted carry with the neck chain included, or with the CRKT

MercHarness™ system (not included). It’s a useful, friendly minimal knife that’s a great

value at an MSRP of only $26.99.

The Dogfish family is available as the 2370C and 2371C in retail clampacks.
