Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A.— January 19, 2010

The CRKT® Ignitor® series is making a big bang,

with OutBurst® opening, Fire Safe™ actuation, layered G10 scales,

and optional Veff™ Serrations.

We have been igniting passions for high-tech folders among knife enthusiasts with this

Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) knife series. That’s why we call it the Ignitor®. It

raises the bar for all value-priced folders, by using premium blade steel, layered G10 scales,

and patented features including assisted opening, a unique knife safety and our special

serrations. We challenge you to find a knife of this quality for the money. Consider these

features:

First the blade. It’s a modified drop point design with a high hollow grind. We use premium

8Cr14MoV stainless steel. You have your choice of a Razor-Sharp edge or combination

Razor-Sharp edge with our patented1 Veff™ Serrations, which are superior for fast cutting of

cord, netting and vegetation.

The frame uses our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and

layered G10 scales, textured and CNC machined to aid grip. The deep finger choil and

pommel fit the hand nicely. The flat cross section makes for comfortable in-pocket carry.

The true breakthrough is our ability to combine our patented OutBurst® assisted opening

with the patent-pending2 Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by

the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is

firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly

for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder

safety and fast access that we have ever seen in a sport and work folder.

All models include a removable stainless steel clip.

Ignitor® Sport. The standard Ignitor models have a polished blade and frame, with green

and black G10 scales. It’s a contemporary and sophisticated look that exudes custom-knife

quality.

Ignitor® T. We also offer the Ignitor in a tactical color scheme. The blade receives a

non-reflective dark gray titanium nitride coating, which provides maximum corrosion

protection. The “T” models feature black G10 scales.

So that’s the Ignitor story. Did you feel a spark? If not, get down to your favorite retailer and

put one in your hand.

With manufacturer’s suggested list prices of only $59.99 for the Ignitor models, and

$69.99 for the Ignitor T models, these are hot sellers.
