When Jon Graham of Graham Knives in Cleveland, Tennessee, developed the custom Graham Razel™ in 2001, most knife blades came to a single point. Not the Razel. It's a cross between a chisel and a razor with a knife handle. The result gives two useful Razor-Sharp edges, one for pushing or tapping, and the other for precise cutting. You also get two strong blade points. The Jon Graham has been very successful with their custom versions in a variety of sizes and styles.
The CRKT production Razel models follow the Graham concept faithfully, with very thick full-tang blades of premium 9Cr18MoV (similar to 440C) stainless steel in a brushed finish, hand-contoured resin impregnated fiber handles, and custom-fitted Kydex® sheaths.
How are mechanics, carpenters, farmers, and home craftsmen using their Razel models? The Grahams report: Scraping gaskets, removing paint and stickers. Chiseling to make reliefs, mortises and tenons. Prying tight-fitting parts. Cutting things like paracord, wire insulation, radiator hose, plastic ties and tubing. Taper reaming a hole with the twist of the wrist. Reaching into tight spaces and push cutting with the chisel edge. Opening feed bags and cutting through bales of hay. You name it, the Razel does it.
Our Stubby Pocket Razel™ has cutting edges of 1.0" and 2.15". The comfortable contoured resin impregnated fiber handle makes this a tool you can use for hours. There is a flat at the end of the handle for tapping, and friction grooves at the blade spine for the thumb. It's an ideal everyday carry for the craftsman.
It's an extremely high-quality work tool, built to custom standards, and unique in the knife and tool world. And just about every serious craftsman we show them to, wants one immediately.
In-pocket sheaths. Jon Graham designed the Kydex sheath which comes with the Stubby Pocket Razel for right-hand in-pocket carry.
Beautifully crafted knife with high quality materials. Useful for just about any job you can think of. The only downfall is the incredibly cheap kydex left handed sheath. It's not reversible and makes the knife difficult to carry for a right hander. For the price, you should offer a choice of sheaths for such a great knife I have the same problem with the larger ringed razel I purchased. Please make a sheath that is comparable to the knife...

Great little utility knife. The holster is a nice concept but, the knife fits a little loose and can also be difficult to remove and insert. Overall the knife itself is excellent.
