As part of the Forged By War® program, Austin McGlaun of Columbus, Georgia, designed the Clever Girl™. It aligns with his philosophy that a knife is more than a tool. It’s a psychological deterrent that is very different from a gun. It tells your attacker very quickly that you mean business. The Clever Girl™ was created so you can grab it, use it if necessary, and then go home to your family.
With a black, powder coated upswept blade, this is a knife that is all about function. It’s here to protect you and bring a soldier home at the end of his watch—be it in the field, on a mission, or in high stress environments. Just grab hold of the tough G10 handle that provides an exceptional grip and draw it from the sheath. Then let your body go on autopilot.
In the fight for your life, you don’t want a pretty girl watching your back. You want a Clever Girl™.
About the Forged By War® program
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT® with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS).
To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them in the battlefield.
CRKT® cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War® program.
These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the veterans' charity of choice.

Austin McGlaun's charity of choice for this tool is the Green Beret Foundation.
There are those who fight with knives. There are others who design them. And then…there’s Austin. Having served in the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq, and as a street cop in Columbus, GA, he knows that a knife has to work as both a weapon and a tool. As part of the Forged By War™ program he applied his skills as both a combat vet and knife maker to develop the Clever Girl™. Not to mention a new way to bring his fellow soldiers home. When asked about his design philosophy, he’ll tell you that if a knife is ugly but effective, it’s not ugly. It’s perfect.
