New tactically inspired EDC is designed to run sweep for larger, mission-specific knives...

CRKT® is releasing the Aux™ fixed blade and Aux™ folders. Designed by Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, New Mexico it’s modeled after classic hard-use tactical knives but stands in as an auxiliary to larger, more mission-specific knives.

The mean-looking aesthetic matches the sweeping versatility of the Aux™. And with a strong stainless steel blade, this 3.6” plain edge blade is available in a fixed blade style, and as a plain-edge folder. The Aux™ black folder features a corrosion resistant black oxide finish and a combination edge with Triple Point™ serrations. It’s always at attention–ready to be deployed for a battle with your to-do list.

The sleek, bubbled, glass-reinforced nylon handle appears on all three models and feels ergonomically flawless in hand. The thumb grooves on the fixed blade elevate grip even in the midst of muck, grease, or inclement weather. The folders feature an ambidextrous thumb disc for easy opening with a gloved hand.

This family cleans up. Lucas Burnley is renowned for designing no-frills workhorses, and these three mean knives deliver. They tour widely versatile utility and a let-me-at-em attitude.

Your everyday carry should send a clear message. The Aux™ says it all.

The Aux™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
The Aux™ Folder manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
The Aux™ Folder Black with Triple Point™ Serrations manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99.
