The new CRKT® Fire Spark™ combines everything we know about
folders, including Fire Safe™ and OutBurst® assisted opening, and the
At Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®), our goal in producing this new folder is to
combine all of our recent technological advances in one heavy-duty tactical folder. We call it
the Fire Spark™, and it is primarily intended for law enforcement and military professionals,
although it also makes a fine general-purpose sport and work folder for those who want to
carry a large knife.
The innovative construction starts with our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners,
one locking. We add 6061 aluminum scales, which are CNC machined to receive black
textured G10 inlays. The handle is a full 4.75” long to be comfortable for those with large
hands, or when wearing gloves, and features four finger choils to give optimum grip. The
cross section is flat enough for in-pocket carry. Finally, there is a strong stainless steel back
spacer that extends to the butt, which culminates in a “skull cracker” pointed tip. The back
spacer is relieved to allow a double lanyard loop to be cut in the stainless steel liners.
The blade on the Fire Spark is a modified tactical spear point design with a Razor-Sharp
edge, high hollow grind and swedged top edge for penetration. Blade steel is premium
8Cr14MoV stainless steel.
Two models are available. The Tactical 1050K is finished in non reflective black oxide on
blade, frame, three-position stainless steel clip, and hardware. We also offer the Sport 1050,
which has a high satin blade finish, silver anodized frames, and polished three-position
stainless steel clip.
We have combined our patented OutBurst® assisted opening with our patent-pending1 Fire
Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be
opened until the thumb stud is pressed and nudged outward. Then the blade springs open
instantly for use. The system assures fast opening action even in cold weather and when
Finally, to maintain lockup in high-stress situations, we’ve incorporated the patented2
LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts the folder into a virtual fixed blade when the
LAWKS lever is pressed forward.
The Fire Spark is the most fully featured tactical folder we have ever offered, and it is also a
great value, with an MSRP of only $69.99 for the bright-finished model 1050, and $79.99 for
the all-black model 1050K.
