The energy flows. The lines drive. The curves move. The custom composition is evident and the function is fabulous. A declaration of “let's make it," goes out. New product development meeting at CRKT is adjourned. A new EDC knife will be born.
CAD drawings are created. Modifications. Emails. Tweaks. Mechanics. Tooling. Prototypes. Testing. Perfection. Production. The lineage of the production knife is apparent: it is a custom design with integrity to its heritage manifested throughout its entire form. The Ken Onion custom design is now a CRKT collaboration. The Flavio Ikoma custom becomes a new CRKT folding knife. The beauty of a Brian Tighe design is maintained. And the masses rejoice, year after year.
