Here at Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) we're inspired by great design. Our I.D. Works® products are not tools you will find anywhere else. We're motivated by design that is both inspired and functional, as created 500 years ago by painter, sculptor, architect, and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, who said "observe everything" in nature. We've partnered with the best and brightest designers of today who share this vision of putting functional art in your hand. They are organic and ergonomic shapes, sometimes whimsical, alway useful. These unique tools make up our growing I.D. Works® line. Put them to use, enjoy them, and always remember what inspires you!
Our new Flux™ modular tool system is another creative design by Launce Barber and Tom Stokes as a part of our I.D. Works® tool family. It is a lightweight, high-tech system designed for people with active outdoor lifestyles.
This exciting new system was named the 2009 Most Innovative Imported Design at the Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia, when it was first displayed in May of 2009.
At the core of the Flux system is the lightweight aluminum carabiner chassis which allows tools to be quickly selected, attached, and clipped on clothing and gear. Two chassis are available; one with dual rails which will hold any two Flux tools, and one with a single rail which provides a carabiner for any single Flux tool. Note: Flux carabiners are non-weight-bearing and must not be used as a climbing aid.
We are marketing the Flux system in value clampacks which include two tool components and a double chassis. The GoNerd™ Pack (Flux Driver and Flux Flash Drive) is aimed at those in the high tech world who might be swapping out a hard drive at one moment, and transferring data at the next.
Flux™ Driver. This hex driver functions as a standard screwdriver and as a T-handle driver, depending on where the bit extension adapter is placed. It includes three hex bits (one Phillips, two flat) which each have small ball detents to hold them securely in the driver handle until needed. The Driver's utility is enhanced by a small L.E.D. work light near the tip to light the work space.
Flux™ Flash Drive. Everyone today needs a flash drive to transfer files. Just press the button on the Flash Drive holder, and the 2 GB Micro SD™ USB Flash Drive flips out for instant use. There is also a small storage compartment in the handle which will hold extra memory cards.
Using the Flux system, the lightweight tools are easy to select and carry for any activity. Just "pick and click" the tool you need.
