Flame description
When Tom Stokes saw our Kommer Fulcrum, he was excited about Charles Kain's cool patented* opening action, but he was even more excited about designing a new knife around it. That's understandable, because Tom is the co-designer of many of our stunning I.D. Works tools, and has a flair for the unusual. So he sent us drawings for the Fulcrum Flame, and now it's a CRKT production knife. The knife design is a study in curves, with nary a straight line to be found.

The 2.75" AUS 8 premium stainless steel blade is a drop point, swedged and recurved with a high hollow grind. Tom came up with a curvilinear CRKT logo that is laser cut into the blade.

Structurally, the Flame uses our high-carbon stainless steel InterFrame build with a steel pivot at the back spacer. Scales are 6061 T6 aluminum, black anodized, with radiating circular engraving and a flame relief on the front scale. The handle shape is designed to fit the hand with an extremely deep finger choil resulting in a wasp-waist, then swelling into a comfortable curved butt.

If your friends aren't impressed by the Flame's flowing design, they will be when they see the crisp click-click instant opening.

To open the Flame, simply press the left side of the frame down with your thumb. The blade swings out to the 90° position. Click! Then pull the left side of the frame back, gripping with your index finger at the choil, and the blade continues to rotate open and lock in the open position. Click! After a few openings, you can do it naturally in one continuous, fluid action, or "fulcrumation."

To close the Flame, simply release the stainless steel locking liner. One-hand closing is also fast and easy.

Model 7406 has a bright satin finished blade, liners, and removable stainless steel pocket/gear clip.

The black-out model 7406K has a non-reflective black titanium nitride blade finish for maximum corrosion resistance. Liners and stainless steel clip receive a spectral titanium nitride finish which shows through a relief in the left scale.

At CRKT, we've produced many eye-popping designs over the years, but the Flame is certainly the most sensuous of the lot.
