The CRKT® Kommer 2-Shot® & Surf ’N Turf®:

One is a versatile hunting knife/sheath system, the other is a

folding fillet knife that’s also a great big game boning knife.

Russ Kommer keeps coming up with ideas for high-value knives and tools that every hunter

and fisherman needs. We at Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) are excited about these

two proven products which were inspired by his years of experience as an Alaskan guide.

One of Russ Kommer’s favorite custom knife/sheath packages is the 2-Shot®. He has used it

daily in the field as a hunting guide in Alaska and around the world. Russ says, “I’ve always

preferred a smaller semi-skinner, even for the biggest of game. You just use the hump near the

end of the blade to locate your index finger. And the blade is short enough that you can work

inside the animal and feel where you are at all times.”

The skinner has a full-tang fixed blade of 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel with stainless steel

bolsters, both mirror polished for ease of cleaning. Hand-finished orange G10 handles are

fitted with stainless steel pins. Blade length is 3.15”.

Russ explains the sheath; “For me, a horizontal sheath makes getting around easier. It

doesn’t interfere with your rifle or back pack waist strap, and it’s not always banging the bush

plane, pickup, or fouling the pack horse guide rope. I’ve been making two-shell custom

sheaths for years. I never carry a box of shells out of camp . . . usually just a magazine and the

two cartridges in my sheath. They won’t rattle around, and the two pockets will handle

ammunition from .243 up to .338. No matter what happens, you’ll always have those two

shells to get you home.” The sheath is convertible for left or right carry.

MSRP for this custom-quality knife/sheath package is only $99.99.

When Russ Kommer sent us his new folder prototype, those of us who are salmon and halibut

fishermen saw an exquisite folding fillet knife. However, those who love to hunt could only

see the perfect boning knife for deer, elk, caribou, and moose. Because this knife does both

jobs very well, we had to name it the Kommer Surf ’N Turf®.

It owes its versatility to the slender upturned 5.0” blade of high-carbon 5Cr13MoV stainless

steel, which gives the blade toughness and flexibility. It is high-taper-ground to perform

smooth, accurate slicing, and mirror polished for best stain resistance. Dual grooved thumb

studs allow fast either-hand opening.

We have used our rigid InterFrame build on the Surf ’N Turf, with two stainless steel liners,

one locking, and a full-length stainless steel back spacer at the spine, which is completely
