Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A — January 17, 2017

New knife pairs a stout blade with a low-profile for a go-anywhere backwoods companion.

CRKT® is releasing the Batum™ folding outdoor knife. Designed by Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark, it’s created in classic Scandinavian style: clean and understated when it’s not in use, burly and capable when it’s called.

Batum, Denmark is a city that acts as a basecamp for adventures through the desolate terrain that surrounds it. With a strong stainless steel blade with a satin finish, this 3.2” big-bellied blade, is raring to go when confronted with anything Mother Nature can dream up. It’s little sister, the Batum™ Compact is identical in aesthetic and capability, but lighter and stealthier for longer missions.

A short, but extremely ergonomic handle provides a firm, secure grip in any position—especially in the midst of rain, snow, mud, or sand. The sturdy frame lock provides confidence while the blade is open and in use. A big thumb slot blade deployment makes for easy-open capabilities on both models, even if you’re wearing gloves.

Voxnaes set out to create the perfect field companion—a knife that would feel equally at home on oceanic expeditions as on woodsy adventures. Both models deliver flawlessly: the Batum™ Compact for extended trips, and the Batum™ as a quick-grab daily go to.

You’re not interested in the path of least resistance. Neither is the Batum™.

The Batum™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
The Batum™ Compact manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
