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

New fixed blade hunting knife inspired by Alaskan bear hunts.

CRKT® is releasing the Humdinger™ fixed blade hunting knife. Designed by Ken Onion of Kaneohe, Hawaii, its big-belly blade design, beefy handle, and all-black aesthetic is as rugged as the Alaskan backcountry it was built for.

Several years ago, Ken Onion ventured north for a bear hunt on America’s last frontier. The Humdinger™ is the one he wished would have existed when he was elbow-deep field dressing the grizzly his team took down. And with a strong black oxide finish, this 6” blade, designed for long, sweeping motions, will break down your big game and get it straight to your freezer.

A grippy thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) handle provides a firm grip even if you find yourself gutting your game in the pouring rain. Once the job is done, a quick wipe will do, then securely back into the polypropylene sheath it goes.

The Humdinger™ is built with an extremely simple design. Fewer components directly translate to a stronger, more efficient knife. There’s no need for frills or aesthetics when you’re hundreds of miles from anywhere.

Out in bear country, you can’t afford to go without an outstanding knife—on that account, the Humdinger™ delivers.

The Humdinger™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $89.99
