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.
1. U.S. Patent No. 5,596,808

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.

I love this thing Ergonomics, ease of opening, sharpness, and that awesome VEFFserration made this my new favorite knife. I have always despised serrated knives until I got a VEFF. serrated,... I will never buy another unless it is VEFF serrated. The chisel edge is unreal, I swear you wouldn't even know you didn't have a spear tip for penetration. Great job

For the most part I really love the knife. There isn't much I can say bad about it, One little nitpick of mine however is the LAWKS safety switch snapped off randomly. The knife itself is perfectly usable still, but engaging the safety is a bit difficult. I might just be really hard on my toys. Over all I really love the Knife I get tons of comments and questions and in a pinch, people respect it and keep their distance. Four Solid stars from me ***CRKT RESPONSE The safety is definitely not designed that way and it is incredibly strong. Please return the knife for us to take a look at and we can consider replacing via warranty. Our customer service and warranty are a few of the best people and policies in the industry. Thank you.
