2388 description
Specifically Built for Anything that Needs to be Cut.

A compact fixed blade neck knife with a Wharncliffe-style blade and tough G10 handle, it feels equally at home in the woods or around the house.

The S.P.E.W.™ (Small Pocket Everyday Wharncliffe) is designed by Alan Folts of Melbourne, FL. A designer and dedicated custom knife instructor with over 20 years' experience, he cares deeply about helping folks learn about knives as tools, and passing along the skills of custom knife making to others.

This svelt dynamo packs a lot into its compact fixed blade knife design. A plain edge Wharncliffe-style blade rips through a variety of cutting tasks better than most knives of comparable size. You owe it to yourself to see how something so compact can come up so big with such great control.

Let your first two fingers take hold of the G10 handle. Wrap the last two around the cord fob for extra grip. Then see where you can go with it from there. You'll find it's tough to argue against the value of having a knife along with you, especially one as versatile and comfortable as the S.P.E.W.™ It's slim in design only, not features.

The S.P.E.W.™ comes with a versatile carry sheath. Not that you'll be keeping it in there for long.

Take it with you for when you might need it most—all of the time.

Great little knife Light, strong, sharp, and easy to handle. I'm planning to get one for my wife and a couple of others as gifts.

I give this little knife 5 stars, I had a couple of strokes about 5 years ago,I have been carrying a folding knife with a clip in my front right pocket.Since I take blood thinners I was constantly cutting the back of my hand on the the clip,this knife solved that problem,I love it,sharp,light and handy.However I just ordered three of them and two minimalist wharnciiffe for Christmas gifts,at A.G. Russell Knives they were 29.95 and 18.95 respectfully , that was a bummer when I paid 44.95 for mine. Still think it is great knife...Carll

This has become my favorite "must carry" knife. For me, although I have and collect many knives, a knive first and formost is a tool. Started out with a Boyscout Barlow, then fishing/hunting knives, various pocket knives when my job took me to a desk, and now in retirement, neckknives so they don't weigh down my athletic pants and shorts I wear around the house. I thought the Folts Warncliff Minalmist was about as good as it gets until the S.P.E.W. The shape of the blade works from opening mail, packages, breaking down boxes, digging splinters, clipping herbs from my deck garden pots to harvesting kale and thinning out small plants. I keep the edge razor sharp on my Spyderco Sharpmaker (fine). The handle is a thing of functional beauty. Wouldn't be without it.

Just got this, love it. I have a older neck/P.E.C.K. But this is a bit larger and has a grip. Fantastic neck knife while flyfishing. Cuts leaders, cleans fish, whatever the task. I recommend.

Very nice little knife. With it's lack of blade belly,it won't ever be much of a wood carver,but it's still great for everything else.Spears those stuck olives right out of that narrow little jar with it's long extended point-and slits open envelopes with the greatest of ease with its supersharp edge too It's just nice to carry it in a pocket all day and have it handy around the home/office etc.Kudos to Allen Folts and C.R.K.T. on this one.

I have not used this much yet. Longer than my normal knife but it mosly just sits in the drawer and waits for somthing that needs to be cut.

i just bought the SPEW and was really excited about my purchase. great little knife and perfect for the applications i have in mind. ive always been impressed with CRKTs quality

I currently have a half dozen CRKT knives. My "everyday" choice is the SPEW, followed by the M16-13SF. The SPEW makes an excellent low-profile small belt knife ( I peel core an apple everyday, except for the tilt/angle and narrow width of the belt adapter. Most jeans chinos have belt loops 1 5/8ths" or 2" wide. I had to purchase a narrow belt to wear the SPEW and must remove the buckle keeper to fit on. Once on, the angle shifts and the sheath acquires an angled gap separating it from the belt attachment allowing it to snag. If the apparatus could be a little wider to accept"standard" belt width and the "gap/snag" challenge reduced, I would happily purchase a couple more. The M16-13SDF is handy and accessible, however, while the pocket clip works well, it would be excellent to have the option of an unobtrusive secure case to wear on a belt or attach upside down on gear one-handed. At 63, I probably have 40 to 50 blades of different utility designs. It would also be nice (wish list)if you offered non-reflection black coating on more of your products. Thank you, response requested. Aloha
