Pharaoh description
Yes, yes, we know. Those of you who love to drool over Allen Elishewitz's web site of exquisite custom knives have pointed out that our production CRKT Pharaoh is very different from Allen's custom Pharaoh. Sorry for any confusion, but this is a unique design that incorporates many of Allen's themes, and we felt it was so special it deserved to be called "king." You will look very hard to find a production knife in this price class that is anything like the Pharaoh, so it does stand a bit larger than life.

First there is the unique blade grind, reminiscent of the traditional "long clip blade" of a century ago, with Allen's own innovations. The tip is designed for penetration, with a swedged top edge. But the center of the blade is recurved, with a high hollow grind, making it ideal for feeding material to the cutting edge— wood, cord, vegetation. The blade is AUS 8 premium stainless steel in a bead-blast finish. Both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge grinds are available.

The frame is about the strongest we can imagine, with dual stainless steel liners, brushed stainless steel bolsters, textured injection-molded glass filled nylon scales, and a solid glass filled nylon back spacer at the spine.

The Pharaoh is a button lock, featuring steel-on-steel lockup. The knife features automated liner safety, which engages automatically when the blade is opened and locked.

Dual checkered thumb studs allow fast either-hand opening. To close the Pharaoh, you must pull back the red lever with the finger while pressing the button lock.

The Pharaoh uses Torx® fasteners throughout. The stainless steel pocket/gear clips are removable, and high-mounted for low in-pocket carry.

Historically, the pharaohs were held in awe by all those around them. We think our Pharaoh is awesome, too. It might just be the most remarkable folder we have ever built. Find the Pharaoh and other automatic knives on our web site.
