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 the 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. Here's custom knife quality in a very affordable work tool.
The Stubby Folding Razel™ is a short little frame lock with straight cutting edges of 2.0" and 0.923". The blade is easily opened with either hand, thanks to dual knurled thumb studs. The hand-contoured ram horn scales swell to fit securely in your palm. Three stainless steel back spacers yield an easily cleaned open build. This is the perfect tool to use for any precision cutting task, such as shaving just a few thousandths of an inch from a woodworking cut, or cleaning up the inside corners of a mortise. And it is strong enough with hefty liners, a 0.13" thick blade, a deep finger choil and ample thumb friction grooves, to handle any rough cutting job, too. Whether you're a woodworker, electrician, mechanic, sculptor, or home hobbyist, you'll become attached to this little guy.

I love this, I wish they had not discontinued the Razel knives. I have been using the Stubby Razel every day for two plus year. My only complaint with this knife is that the screws kept coming out. This morning I reached for my knife and it was gone, all I had in my pocket was the clip portion of the knife.
I recommend all of you who have this knife to put some lock-tight on the screws so you don't loose it like I did

This knife is the perfect representation of CRKT's comitment to quality. I own a lot of CRKT knives -- and intend on owning a lot more. I bought this little knife after taking a haitus for a little while. Oh my goodness, when I received this knife, it was a huge reminder of how great CRKT knives are. This particulat knife, the 'Stubby' is one of those examples of getting a lot of value in a small package. But don't underestimate it's impact. It is fully load with a very sharp blade all around.
CRKT -- thank you Thank you for representing quality. It is exactly what our country needs. You guys are doing a great job out there. Your Facebook and other social media endeavors are really doing well. And thank you for bringing another CRKT fanatic back into the fold

A very good friend of mine found one of these knives and bragged about its stoutness. I came to CRKT and noticed the sale and purchased a handful of these. Great fitment, super design and an all around handyman's perfect companion. Way to go Jon Graham, you totally knocked this out of the park It's an exceptional offering and a quality gift for any member of the family

I bought this knife because I have the Stubby Pocket Razel. I figured a folding version would be the ultimate carry knife. I was somewhat wrong, but this is an awesome blade. The Subby Pocket Razel is likely better suited for overall woodworking projects, or if you're going to wear/carry it on any sort of belt. The Stubby Folding Razel is a better overall project knife, I found the thumb grooves on the back great for stripping wires. It's a little too thick and bulky to be the ultimate carry knife. The scales make it feel thick and while it looks nice, the scales feel like they might shatter if dropped. I keep thinking nicely designed mahogany scales would have been killer. But it's a great product. Got one for my Dad for Father's Day, so def recommend it.

I purchased a stubby folding razel with the # 4020rh. After first look I put it back in box and consigned it to storage. After talking to a friend and seeing his I am taking it back out for rebuilding. First off I removed the clip so it fits in the watch pocket on my jeans. second I am giving consideration to making new scales. What I am really looking at the most is getting it sharp enough. Properly sharpened by my friend this is a really good pocket carver. Great concept and I am going to hang on to it. 2star out of the box, would have been four if it was a sharp as its Razor namesake.
I Bought this because I have a property maintenance business and was thinking I could use the flat end for the many time I have to scrape things. Well I am pleased to say I use this knife all the time, every day and for many different jobs. The 90 degree point is strong and can be used where normal points are too week. It can easily be opened with one hand. The little nub you push to start the opening of the blade is wonderful and works great. This is my Favorite knife. I carry it in a little self made scabbard with a little pen along side. My two most useful tools. If you guys can make a Knife/Pen scabbard do it. You will like it. The only thing I can say negative about this knife is that it sets thick in the scabbard. I am used to small thin knives so it may be me. Buy it. You will like

Like a previous reviewer, I love the blade and the overall design, but the ram horn scales cracked after being dropped once. I'm not sure if this is a user error thing or what, but the blade also seems to be seated improperly inside the frame--it scrapes against the inner liner whenever deployed.
Despite all this it really is a nice little knife, and the 90 degree point ends up being surprisingly useful.
