Our CRKT fixed-blade Razel™ series designed by Jon Graham of Graham Knives in Cleveland, Tennessee, has captured the attention of every craftsman who has seen them. But many insisted that we make folding versions, so they could whip out the knife for a task, open it with one hand, make the cut, close it with one hand, and clip it back into their pocket or work apron without looking down for a sheath. We had to admit it was faster, so Jon went to work and these new folders are the result.
Because we know that craftsmen respect a quality tool, we decided to make these models using premium 8CR13MoV stainless steel blades and top-of-the-line scale materials. Removable stainless steel clips are included on all models.
We believe the Folding Razel™ is the most comfortable knife we have made yet. It's a full-size working knife with stainless steel InterFrame build and hand-contoured black and white swirled resin impregnated fiber scales, with a slightly curved 3.13" main cutting edge and 1.25" straight chisel tip edge. The handle has a rounded cross section, deep finger choil, and pommel swell, plus grip notches at the finger tips and friction grooves at the thumb. This is a knife you can use for hours on end without discomfort.
Integrated into the design is the patented (1) LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts the Folding Razel into a virtual fixed blade very reassuring when you are using your knife for difficult and tiring tasks.
It is also available with our exclusive patented (2) Veff™ Serrations for the fastest possible cutting of rope, webbing, strapping, hose, and vegetation.
Here's custom knife quality in a very affordable work tool.

I don't care that these have been "discontinued", this is one of my favorite knives to carry around and i have been stocking up on those online, totally worth it.
The weight of this knife is pleasing for duty. everything moves very smooth with and exceptional lock up. my LAWKS also came nice and tight so no complains there.
This folder will be stuffed into my pocked daily, until i run out of them.

just pick one up two days ago, sad to hear they are being discontinued. good heavy duty knife, razor sharp edge(s) on it right out of the box. the extra pocket clip is kinda dumb, and the fact the i cant put it tip up without using said pocket clip is dumb to. other than that, fantastic knife. hopefully going to pick up the ringed razel soon.
