New Compact Knife Warns Jobs Not to Back it into a Corner.

CRKT® is releasing the Pangolin™ fixed blade tactical knife designed by Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical. This stout blade is the perfect size for a pack or purse. But when there’s big work to be done, it comes out fighting.

The Pangolin™ features a modified drop point blade with black powder corrosion-resistant finish that can hold its own, both on a mission in the field or at home. You may wonder how such a short, robust knife can get so much work done. Then you grab hold of the handle, feel its ergonomic design, and realize you can get some serious leverage with this blade.

But this knife isn’t just snarl and grit. It has an attractive side too. Look closer at the handle texture. You’ll see it has scales that are reminiscent of the pangolin—the small but naturally gifted animal from which it derives its name.

Johnson designed the Pangolin™ to be his personal carry knife—one that could be quickly accessible but still do some serious work. This short, lean knife stays out of the way until you really need it. And then…it’s a beast.

The Pangolin™ knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $69.99
