New tactically-inspired everyday carry knife rules style and performance

CRKT® is releasing the Directive™ folding everyday carry knife. Designed by Matthew Lerch of Sussex, Wisconsin, its burly profile, clean lines, and all-black aesthetic make any to-do list quiver with fear.

There’s no wonder why Lerch gave the Directive™ its name—it’ll answer your call with impressive force and swift precision. And with a strong black oxide finish, this 3.6” blade, available in tanto and drop point shapes, will deliver your to-do’s straight to where they belong: straight to the have-done list. This beefy folder mows through everything that gets in its way.

A beefy handle provides a firm grip even when confronted with mud, grease, or sand. The sturdy locking liner provides confidence while the blade is open and in use. Deep grooves on the base of the blade make it easy to get a solid hold on the knife even when you’re wearing gloves or doing detail work.

Lerch was originally trained as a watchmaker. The perfect intersection of simplicity and performance are evident in all of his creations, but especially so here. He’s inspired by everything from functional performance in nature to a well-built race engine, and the Directive™ is clearly no exception.

If you’re at war with your garage, the Directive™ is your commander in chief.

The Directive™ Tanto manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
The Directive™ Drop Point manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
