The CRKT® Kommer Collection:

Premium fixed blade hunters from hunting guide and knifemaker Russ

Kommer. Quality knives for serious hunters, that you’ll cherish and

leave to your children.

Before Russ Kommer puts his name on a knife, he takes it on the next hunting trip he guides

and uses it on the skinning of Alaskan moose, caribou and bear. These Columbia River Knife

& Tool® (CRKT®) fixed blade hunters survived his field test. That’s good enough for us.

Our two Pro Hunters are premium classic hunters with stacked leather handles and full-tang

premium 440A stainless steel blades. We add a stainless steel bolster, oversize rings of leather

and a stainless butt cap, swedged in place by a stainless steel tube rivet. Finally, the entire

handle is hand-finished to achieve the perfect contour. The high hollow ground blade, bolster

and butt cap are given a high satin finish, which makes cleaning easier and fights corrosion.

Their full-fitted sheaths of 9 oz. shoulder leather feature a classic basketweave pattern.

The Chugach Range Pro Hunter is the perfect Alaska utility knife, with a simple tear drop

handle and modified drop point. Useful for both skinning and caping chores. If we can only

take one knife, this is our choice.

The Wrangell Range Pro Hunter is a classic drop point hunting blade with a choiled

“power grip” handle that gives you security, no matter how you choke up on the knife. It is

ideal in wet and icy conditions.

Also in the collection is the Bez Tine™ Hunter, a classic fixed-blade skinner with a blade of

1.4116 high-carbon stainless steel. The blade receives a high hollow grind for top skinning

performance, and then is mirror polished for maximum corrosion resistance. At the handle, the

full-tang blade is mated to a stainless steel bolster and walnut scales, held with stainless steel

pins and meticulously hand-contoured. The handle features four deep finger choils for grip

under the slipperiest conditions. A thick custom leather sheath is included.

Our Brow Tine™ Hunter is a traditional drop point hunter with stag handle. The blade is

high-carbon 9Cr18MoV stainless steel with a mirror finish. There is a pinned stainless steel

bolster and the hand-finished stag handles are held by mosaic pins. A tooled leather sheath

completes the package, which is perfect for every outdoorsman who appreciates old-style

design and quality.

Whether climbing up a ridge, sitting in a duck blind, or casting down a riffle, Russ is always

thinking. And he thought you might like these tools. They’re all Alaskan classics. And in case

you can’t get to Alaska on your next hunting trip, Russ says they work just as well in Montana

and Tanzania.


These premium products are very good values. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is

$119.99 for the Bez Tine, $129.99 for the Brow Tine, and $149.99 for each Pro Hunter.
