Yes, Inspired Design works.®
The CRKT® Lumabiner®, an organically shaped carabiner-carry
knife and flashlight in six cool colors.
Here at Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) we’re inspired by great design. Our
I.D. Works® products are not tools you will find anywhere else. We’re motivated by
design that is both inspired and functional, as created 500 years ago by painter, sculptor,
architect, and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, who said “observe everything” in nature.
We’ve partnered with the best and brightest designers of today who share this vision of
putting functional art in your hand. They are organic and ergonomic shapes, sometimes
whimsical, alway useful. These unique tools make up our growing I.D. Works® line. Put
them to use, enjoy them, and always remember what inspires you!
Our patented* Lumabiner® is another unique carabiner tool designed by Launce Barber
and Tom Stokes. It is a folding knife, L.E.D. flashlight and carry carabiner available in a
variety of cool metallic colors.
It is the intricate design of the Lumabiner cast-aluminum body that makes this tool so
distinctive— reminiscent of prehistoric sea creatures— with sinuous curves, gill-like
shapes, and rippled friction grooves. When the blade is open, some people see a shark-
like nose and eyes.
The 1.625” drop-point blade is high-carbon 7Cr17MoV stainless steel with a Razor-
Sharp edge. Dual thumb studs allow fast opening with either hand. A stainless steel
locking liner locks the blade in place, and can be easily released for one-hand closing.
The carry carabiner (non-weight-bearing) has a small detent which locks the carabiner
closed for additional carry security when carrying on belt loops, webbing, or equipment
Hidden near the nose of the Lumabiner is a bright L.E.D. flashlight. Just press the soft
little black button to turn it on and off.
The Lumabiner is available in a variety of cool metallic colors, including Charcoal,
Electric Blue, Dusty Rose, Leaf Green, and Sonic Silver, plus non-metallic Ice White.
This is a handy little knife that belongs in every pocket, purse and briefcase. It has
dozens of uses around home and office, plus it makes a very effective key fob flashlight.
And with an MSRP of $29.99, just about everybody can have one.
Lumabiner knives in all colors are available in retail clampacks as the 9080C, 9080BC,
9080PC, 9080GC, 9080WC, and 9080SC.
*The Lumabiner is covered by U.S. Patent No. D584,437.
