New Minimalist Folder Designed to be a Workhorse in Any Situation.

CRKT® is releasing the Amicus™ Compact everyday carry folding knife. Designed by Jesper Voxnaes of Løgstrup, Denmark, it was tested in some of the toughest environments he could find—the fjords and forests in his own backyard. It’s now more than ready to tackle your everyday tasks.

The word amicus means friend or comrade. And this 3” Tanto shaped blade is there when you need it. This folder is impressively capable for its size, acting like a horde, cutting through everything—be it big jobs, fine tasks, and anything in between.

An ergonomically-designed handle provides a firm, secure grip in any position. The sturdy frame lock provides confidence while the blade is open and in use. Protruding back spacers and deep grooves make it easy to get a solid hold on the knife even when you’re wearing gloves.

Voxnaes set out to create the ideal go-to folder—one that would feel equally at home on his sailing vessels as in the shop or around the house. While normally a fixed blade would be his ideal choice, the Amicus™ Compact has now become his number one pick.

If you want to bring out your inner Viking while going about your daily business, the Amicus™ Compact has your back.

The Amicus™ Compact knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
