About


Born in Oregon in 1994, Columbia River Knife and Tool® is an American company known for distinction in design, selection, and quality. For more than 20 years, CRKT® founder Rod Bremer has put innovation and integrity first, making a commitment to build products that inspire and endure.



From the beginning, CRKT® has been driven by a purpose: to bring useful technological advancements and entirely new product concepts to market. This has led to partnerships with the world's best designers and custom knife makers. The result is products that are visually stunning and technically superior, featuring innovations that have defined the cutting edge of the industry, like the AutoLAWKS™ safety system, the IKBS™ Ball Bearing Pivot System, and the OutBurst® assist opening mechanism. CRKT® currently owns 15 patents and patents pending.

Whether for everyday use or tactical and survival situations, CRKT® knives, tools, and lifestyle accessories are purpose-built to instill confidence in those who proudly carry them. Every day they are put to the test on the job, in the woods, on the mountain, and even on the battlefield by people who value preparedness and demand performance. If it's not up to their standards, then it's not up to ours.

CRKT® products are manufactured using the most advanced equipment and production systems. Our model for getting our products to market emphasizes excellence and efficiency. We believe that everyone should be able to afford to carry the highest quality knives and tools.

At CRKT®, integrity is critical to how we've chosen to do business. It means building products that perform reliably, for sport, work, professional, and lifestyle activities. It also means making a promise to our customers that we will deal with them honestly and directly. Backing that promise is a dedicated customer service department and exceptional warranty program. To us, standing behind our customers is as critical as standing behind our products.
