CRKT Creates a New Spin on a Classic.

CRKT® is releasing the Russ Kommer-designed Fulcrum™ 2 everyday carry knife. When CRKT® first debuted the unique opener on this knife a few years ago, it was like nothing Russ or we had ever seen before. This year he got to work creating a new design that opens eyes as well.

Kommer is always up for a new challenge. So when we asked if he’d like to make one of his favorite knives even better, he jumped at the chance. The thin, sleek, modified drop point blade style makes for a very nice everyday knife. It’s as perfect for those hammering away on steel as for those crunching numbers. Either way you have a knife that puts classic looks and new technology into a modern-era folder.

At first it may be hard to put your finger on what makes this knife unique. Then you use your thumb to open it. Push down on the actual sliding scale and pull back on the handle. The blade goes into its locking position. Your friends will simply say, “Cool.” Which is good because words really don’t do this opener justice.

Finally, the carbon fiber textured handle keeps it looking great in the closed position. But when you have so much power under the hood you can’t help but let it fly out of your pocket and get to work.

If you’re looking for a knife that starts up conversations and ends jobs quickly, reach for the Fulcrum™ 2.

The Fulcrum™ 2 knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $79.99 The Fulcrum™ 2 Compact knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $69.99
