Defensive Lineman-Sized Blade Meets Sprinter Body in Latest CRKT® Knife.

CRKT® is releasing the Buku™ everyday carry knife designed by Lucas Burnley. With a Nepalese-style kukri blade, it packs maximum cutting power into a more compact pocket size.

At first glance the Buku™ appears to be light and thin. But once open, this folder is ready to pick on jobs more than twice its size with a wide and strong 3.75” oversized blade. This is all made possible by a frame lock mechanism with heavy contouring made even beefier by the addition of a steel over-travel tab. When tradition and technology come together, you have an entirely new way to tear things to shreds.

The knife also comes with a deep carry pocket clip. It can ride low in your pocket and be available for high cutting performance when needed.

Burnley, a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, drew inspiration from one of the world’s most classic blades for his latest offering. He wanted the Buku™ to have the same powerful disposition as its larger cousin but make it available in a more compact size. From the looks of things, he clearly succeeded.

Not all jobs are small. For those that aren’t, there’s the Buku™. The Buku™ knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $69.99
