Russ Kommer’s CRKT® Pelvic Tool/Sharpener (P.T.S.™) belongs on the

belt of every successful hunter.

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

Russ designed the P.T.S.™ (Pelvic Tool/Sharpener) because splitting the pelvic bone when

dressing larger animals such as White Tail Deer and Alaskan Moose is difficult with a

The P.T.S. is a high-carbon steel wedge with a chisel edge which will neatly split the

In addition, we have coated the P.T.S. with a No. 400 diamond grit, creating a useful field

sharpener. Use the flat side to touch up hunting knives. The back side has two grooves

designed to sharpen fishhooks and arrow broadheads. The tapered, rounded edges are just

right to sharpen serrated knife edges, including conventional serrations and our exclusive

patented* Veff™ Serrations.

And in typical CRKT style, we have included a braided leather thong for grip and a handy

nylon sheath with the P.T.S.

This unique hunting tool has an MSRP of only $39.99.
