The successful CRKT® Razel™ Folder series features the Graham

razor/chisel concept in a folder, resulting in the hardest-working knives

we have ever made.

Our Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) fixed-blade Razel™ series designed by Jon

Graham of Graham Knives in Cleveland, Tennessee, has captured the attention of every

craftsman who has seen them. But many insisted that we make folding versions, so they could

whip out the knife for a task, open it with one hand, make the cut, close it with one hand, and

clip it back into their pocket or work apron without looking down for a sheath. We had to

admit it was faster, so Graham Knives went to work and these folders are the result.

Because we know that craftsmen respect a quality tool, we decided to make these models

using premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blades and top-of-the-line scale materials.

Removable stainless steel clips are included on all models.

We believe the Folding Razel™ is the most comfortable knife we have made yet. It’s a full-

size working knife with stainless steel InterFrame build and hand-contoured black and white

swirled Micarta® scales, with a slightly curved 3.13” main cutting edge and 1.25” chisel tip

edge. The handle has a rounded cross section, deep finger choil, and pommel swell, plus grip

notches at the finger tips and friction grooves at the thumb. This is a knife you can use for

hours on end without discomfort.

Integrated into the design is the patented1 LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts the

Folding Razel into a strong knife— very reassuring when you are using your knife for

difficult and tiring tasks.

It is also available with our exclusive patented2 Veff™ Serrations for the fastest possible

cutting of rope, webbing, strapping, hose, and vegetation.

Here’s custom knife quality in a very affordable work tool.

The Stubby Folding Razel™ is a short little frame lock with straight cutting edges of 2.0”

and 0.923”. The blade is easily opened with either hand, thanks to dual knurled thumb studs.

The hand-contoured ram horn scales swell to fit securely in your palm. Three stainless steel

back spacers yield an easily cleaned open build. This is the perfect tool to use for any

precision cutting task, such as shaving just a few thousandths of an inch from a woodworking

cut, or cleaning up the inside corners of a mortise. And it is strong enough with hefty liners, a

0.13” thick blade, a deep finger choil and ample thumb friction grooves, to handle any rough

cutting job, too. Whether you’re a woodworker, electrician, mechanic, sculptor, or home

hobbyist, you’ll become attached to this little guy.
