Turtle description
We first noted Georgia custom knifemaker and Knifemakers' Guild member Boyd Ashworth when his custom "Thomas C. Turtle" models won back-to-back Best Miniature Folder awards at consecutive Blade Shows. These innovative little jewels were marked by the use of Boyd's own Damascus steels and exotic materials such as mother-of-pearl, wooly mammoth, walrus, and gold. Consequently, you could spend close to four figures to own one.

We thought the concept of the pendant/money clip knife was brilliant, and came up with our production Ashworth Turtle series. No, there are no exotic materials, but this is a useful pen knife suited to hundreds of daily tasks around the house and office, from clipping recipes to opening packages to sharpening pencils. The 1.0" Razor-Sharp stubby spear point blade is polished high-carbon stainless steel. Just press the blade tang to open with either hand.

In lieu of exotic handle scale materials, we discovered today's advanced CPL composites. The scales can be injection molded in an almost infinite variety of colors and swirl patterns. Five scale colors are available: black, gold, blue, white, and at the demand of many ladies, now pink. Because of the molding process, the swirl patterns vary considerably, so every Turtle is unique.

The Turtle frame is high-carbon stainless steel, available in a polished finish or black anthracite titanium nitride coating.

We engineered the CRKT Turtle to be convertible. It comes with CPL handle scales on the front and back for wear as a pendant on your favorite neck chain (not included). Just fold out the hidden chain holder and you are ready to make a fashion statement. If you prefer, simply unscrew the back scale and attach the polished money clip.

Yes, they are cute little knives, only 2.0" long when folded, and weighing only 1.3 ounces. They make great conversation pieces and are useful and affordable gifts both for men and for women. Believe us, if they have everything else, they don't have one of these.

And by the way, no Turtles were harmed during the photography of this web page.

It bought one of these over three years ago and love it. So for Christmas this year I bought my 15 year old son one. No where near as good as the first one I bought, cross threaded screws holding it together very poor fit finish. Money clip part is not the same material as the first one.
