The idea for the CST Combat Stripping Tool was born during a deployment as a combat medic assigned to a Forward Surgical Team. During intense life-and-death situations, there were times when trauma shears simply weren’t versatile enough get the job done, so Kelly L. Rodriguez designed this utility blade to pick up the slack. When everything is on the line, the CST Combat Stripping Tool is the new solution.

As an active duty soldier, and a veteran of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, Kelly L. Rodriguez designed the CST Combat Stripping Tool once she returned to her hometown in North Carolina. During intense trauma situations amid sand, dirt, and blood, standard trauma shears could get gummed up and fail while she attempted to slice through a patient’s clothes. The simple design of the CST Combat Stripping Tool sidesteps this problem altogether.

The flat utility blade features a strong, efficient bevel and comes with a replacement so you never have to wonder if it’s sharp enough to perform. A tough polypropylene handle is designed to give you a confident grip and features a measuring scale and oxygen wrench, so when you need them, they’re already in-hand. It’s also made to open small packages without damaging the sometimes-fragile contents. The CST Combat Stripping Tool tucks away securely into a woven polyester MOLLE gear-compatible sheath when you’re rushing to the next task.

When every last second counts, you can’t afford to second guess one of your most critical tools. CST Combat Stripping Tool to the rescue.

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 10% of the CRKT® net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice.

Mission ready tools that are Forged By War®. Learn more here.

Kelly Rodriguez's charity of choice for this tool is Operation One Voice.

If there’s ever a Soldier that’s felt like there’s someone looking out, there’s a good chance that someone is Kelly. As an active duty soldier and combat medic for the Army for over 20 years, Kelly brings raw talent to the Forged By War™ program. She designed the CST because dedicating years of service in the field wasn’t enough—she’s continuing the legacy from the homefront. She doesn’t just stop at that, though, she’s preparing to work with organizations that focus on female veterans’ issues after her upcoming retirement.
