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

New stylish everyday carry modeled after an antique grenade.

CRKT® is releasing the Pineapple folding everyday carry knife. Designed by Matthew Lerch of Sussex, Wisconsin, this everyday carry folder is a big punch in a compact package. No matter what tasks you throw it into, the patterned handle design ensures that you’ll have a confident grip, and feel like a badass WWII combat vet while you’re at it.

Lerch got his start as a jeweler, and his attention to detail and unique design directly translates to his custom knife work. This 2.6” stainless steel blade, with a sleek stonewash finish that looks like art, performs flawlessly. There’s a substantial notch on the base of the blade for increased grip and stabilization, and grooves on the top of the handle to dial in on detail work.

The handle pattern, made with glass-reinforced nylon with G10 texture, was modeled after a pineapple frag grenade. Even in gritty conditions, it offers an extremely secure grip. Once open, it anchors into place with a locking liner, keeping fingers safe and keeping you on task.

Lerch has always been inspired by the vintage styling of classic weaponry. When he came across the pineapple frag grenade, he was instantly motivated to translate the badass style to a modern, capable everyday carry knife. He succeeded, to say the least.

It’s no grenade, but Matthew Lerch’s Pineapple is the one you’ll want if you’re looking to blow daily tasks to smithereens.

The Pineapple manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
