Tuition description
Young knifemaker Gerry McGinnis is not well known– yet– in the cutlery world. But he will be when the word gets out about his new production CRKT Tuition knife design. These locking liner folders offer the materials and quality usually found only in custom knives costing many times as much.

The Tuition is offered with Razor-Sharp edges or our exclusive combination patented* Veff Serrations for fastest cutting through rope, twine, netting, and vegetation. As an engineering student in college, Gerry thought his CRKT designs should be named after words that are foremost on his mind right now.

The Tuition is a compact and powerful work knife that is just right for shop and outdoor tasks. The broad sheepsfoot 2.88" blade has a high hollow grind that gives fast cutting, accurate trimming and excellent tip strength. Blade steel is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel in a satin finish.

One-hand opening is fast using the friction-grooved flipper, which also acts as a blade guard when open. Our stainless steel InterFrame build is exceptionally rigid, and features hand-shaped black and green layered polished resin impregnated fiber scales.

While stubby, the Tuition handle is shaped for grip, swelling at the palm and offering a deep finger choil that transitions into the flipper blade guard, plus thumb friction grooves. The custom stainless steel pocket/gear clip in satin finish is removable.

*U.S. Patent No. D559,939
