Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A.— January 19, 2010

At last, CRKT® is offering a line of classic pocket knives in traditional

configurations and blade shapes, made with premium materials.

People have asked us at Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) for years, “Where are your

classic pocket knives?” And we were slightly embarrassed to explain that we didn’t make

them. So this year we went to work to create a premium line of traditional pocket knives made

with the best materials, fit, and finish possible.

We call them the CRKT Pocket Classics, and they’re available in seven of the most

commonly requested styles. They feature high-carbon stainless steel blades with Razor-Sharp

cutting edges, brass liners, polished nickel silver bolsters and pins, stainless steel springs, and

special “burnt amber” jig bone covers.

The traditional patterns include:

Congress. This four-blader has a reverse curve Congress handle with squared ends and

2.125” (54 mm) sheepsfoot plus coping, small pen, and large pen blades.

Whittler. Our three-blader has a swell-center handle with fully rounded ends and 2.25” (57

mm) large clip point blade, plus small clip point, and pen blades.

Stockman. This three-blade model has a subtle “S” curved handle with fully rounded ends

and a 2.625” (67 mm) long clip point blade, plus spey, and sheepsfoot blades.

Big Trapper. Our larger two-bladed Trapper has a gently swelling handle with Trapper

style ends, a 3.25” (83 mm) classic “A” clip point blade plus a spey point blade.

Trapper. Our smaller two-bladed Trapper is similar in design to its big brother, with a 2.75”

(70 mm) long clip point blade and a spey blade.

Texas Toothpick. The larger version of this single-blade classic design has a graceful

down-curve at the butt, and a slender 2.75” (70 mm) California clip point blade, so-named

because of its resemblance to a map of the State.

Toothpick. This is the smaller personal carry version of the Texas Toothpick, with a 2.25”

(57 mm) California clip point blade.

We welcome comparison of this new CRKT line to pocket knives made anywhere in the

world, both in terms of quality and value. The single-blade Toothpick and Texas Toothpick

are priced at $29.99, while the multi-blade models are just $39.99 MSRP.
