When You Hit a Sage Grouse or a Honey Hole, This is the Knife You’ll Want.

CRKT® is releasing the Mossback™ Bird and Trout fixed blade hunting knife designed by Tom Krein. It’s versatile enough to work upriver as well as on upland game.

With a 2.8” modified drop point blade, The Mossback™ Bird and Trout knife is compact enough to strap easily to your belt and so lightweight you won’t even know it’s there—just like you when you sneak up on grouse and brookies.

With a G10 handle, it’s also incredibly durable and feels great in your hand. Meanwhile, a nylon sheath makes it easy to attach to your belt or strap to a pack. This knife looks even better in action.

Krein is a firm believer that form follows function. Having served as an ER trauma nurse, he’s learned a lot about ergonomics and human anatomy. Krein also grew up on the banks of the White River, so he’s familiar with the best way to gut a trout. These experiences came together when he created this blade.

The Mossback™ Bird and Trout knife is the kind the designer wishes he had growing up. You can have it today.

The Mossback™ Bird and Trout manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
