New Knife Compact Enough to Conceal, Beefy Enough to Defend.

CRKT® is releasing the Acquisition™ tactical everyday carry knife series. This series was designed by Pat & Wes Crawford of West Memphis, Arkansas—the Crawford’s notoriously design with self defense in mind, and the ominous-looking build of both the fixed blade and folder are no exception.

The modified drop point blade featured on both models gives off a “don’t you even think about it” attitude, bolstered by three inches plus of black powder coated steel. Tough glass reinforced nylon handles help maintain a confident grip even when you’re elbow-deep in mud.

The locking liner on the folder keeps the blade securely in place while in use, keeping you safe no matter how tough the job at hand is. Likewise, the sleek, gear-compatible sheath that pairs with the fixed blade keeps it poised for grabbing at a moment’s notice. The Crawford’s set out to create a multi-use knife that can be on hand the moment it’s needed.

“This is a fast high speed knife that works great as an everyday carry with all the features of a self-defense tactical folder,” Pat explains. “A knife you can depend on to keep you out of trouble from the backstreets of the city to the high plains and back woods of the world.”

The Acquisition™ or Acquisition™ Folder is what you’ll want by your side if mud, danger and weather lie in your path.

The Acquisition™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
The Acquisition™ Folder manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $79.99
