It Says Something About You. Just Walk Away.

This tactically inspired everyday carry knife with a uniquely etched blade and cord wrapped ray-skin style handle is the true epitome of cool.

Designed by Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, NM, the Obake™ is an artful combination of a classical knife style built with modern-day materials and techniques. It's another example of Burnley's belief that knives are a personal expression of independence. And this one makes a statement when you bring it out for action.

A throwback to a classic Japanese Kwaiken design, it features a full tang fixed blade with a unique gray titanium nitride finish that's acid-etched to give each knife a distinct look. It's like he made the blade exclusively for you to throw down when the need for utility comes up.

The handle has a Katana style nylon cord wrap over a black faux ray-skin for an exceptional and secure all-weather grip. When storms or trouble are brewing, you'll be ready.

The sheath of the Obake™ is made from glass-reinforced nylon that provides consistent retention even in humid environments. A paracord lanyard on the sheath is designed to attach to your belt loop and keep the sheath in place when you deploy the knife. A skull bead adds a not-so-subtle accent to the paracord lanyard.

The Obake™ isn't looking for work, but it's ready to show up looking like a boss when it's time to get the job done.

This is my 3rd CRKT knife adding to my M16-14 and stinger. Good simple design, great for defense, perfect addition to a LEO gun belt, IWB, behind mag pouch. Knife it self I give a 5 out of 5. The sheath is a good design and the lanyard is a great idea to secure the sheath when you pull the knife. Only problem I find is the sheath is almost too snug. Way too hard to pull out, you really need to use more force then you should in order to get this knife out. It would of also been nice to put the holes and extra piece of the sheath on the spine side that way you could use your thumb to assist in opening without the risk of slicing your thumb for that I give the sheath a 2.75 out of 5, if it wasn't this snug I'd give it a 4. I'm looking to have my own sheath made to fix the issue

I really love the look and feel of this knife. However i'm fairly certain that it cannot be 56-58 on the Rockwell scale. I bought mine from AG Russell in Rogers AR. I did have to buy the display knife bc they were sold out, which was fine and the tip had a small flaw from being handled, also fine

This is an excellent everyday carry, form and function at its best. This knife makes you want to find a reason to pull it out. Very satisfied. JAB, TX

Bought this knife from GPknives. Just what I expected small enough to carry IWB, or in pocket with lanyard attached to belt. Good EDC fixed blade. My knife was very sharp out of the box, and kydex sheath very secure. I have yet to put the knife through its paces, however I have had 8cr14mov blades before and I really like it.

Good small knife, nicely made and fits the hand well. The belt attachment is too small for any belt (thickness or width) that I own. The paracord is too short to use as a neck knife, although that was easy enough to remedy. In all a nice knife.

Purchased from House of Blades through Amazon. Very happy with the knife, it is a beautiful (if simple) blade, came very sharp. My wife looked at it and said "it's an ornate shiv, nice". My one complaint is lack of instruction in attaching the belt harness properly plus lack of a clip for attaching to ones pants if one doesn't WEAR a belt. other than that, wonderful design and quality CRKT (and Mr. Lucas Burnley of course), well done

Got this product from Knife Center (, what I consider a pretty reputable website.) Like the design and the cord grip is pretty secure. Biggest complaint is that the knife was incredibly dull from manufacturer--not even an edge set to drag on a thumbnail. I don't think I'm being overly critical, this is just my biggest pet peeve with new knives. I can update this once I sharpen it, but for now, pretty unimpressed. As far as CRKT, I own the Heiho, Hissatsu, and the Otashi Noh Ken, so don't think I'm being too harsh. ***CRKT RESPONSE - We reached out to John and offered him a replacement. This is the first blade issue with this knife we have heard. We have informed the QC team. We appreciate the feedback. 8Cr14Mov is a high carbon stainless steel that is comparable to AUS8. Generally considered an excellent value priced steel for its performance characteristics. CRKT
