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, always 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 GoPlay™ Pack (Flux Wine Tool and Flux L.E.D. Light) is a handy addition to almost any outdoor social function, on the trail or in the backyard.
Flux™ Wine Tool. This is a sommelier's tool which includes a corkscrew, foil knife with a serrated hawksbill blade, and a bottle opener. While small and lightweight, the Wine Tool comes in very handy opening your favorite beverage.
Flux™ L.E.D. Light. This is a small but powerful L.E.D. flashlight with dual L.E.D.'s. Press the button once to light a single L.E.D.; press it twice to light both L.E.D.'s for maximum light. A stainless steel pocket/gear clip allows the Light to be attached to the bill of a cap, very useful when hiking at night or searching for firewood.
Using the Flux system, the lightweight tools are easy to select and carry for any activity. Just "pick and click" the tool you need.
