You’d expect a knife like the Sangrador™ to be created by a veteran who’s spent plenty of time in the field. An advanced soldier who knows what works and what doesn’t. Darrin William Sirois, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, is all that and more. Working with our Forged By War® program, he created a knife that a Special Ops fighter would find invaluable. After all, he spent several years as an Army Ranger.
Sangrador means bleeder in Latin. And this knife takes its role seriously. A 5.5” dual-edged SK5 steel dagger style blade that has unbelievable penetrating abilities. Add Veff Serrations™ and you have a knife that feels as powerful at preventing attacks as it does cutting through cord and rope. A black powder coat finish resists corrosion and camouflages it perfectly in the dark of night. AKA: working hours for you.
A non-slip G10 handle provides unbeatable grip in all conditions, even in sweaty hand-to-hand combat. Just slide it into your MOLLE compatible sheath with a compartment for extra accessories. Then prepare to go into battle with extra large force.
When you want twice as much power in a knife fight, reach for the dual-edged Sangrador™.
About the Forged By War® program
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT® with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS).
To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them in the battlefield.
CRKT® cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War® program.
These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT® net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice.

Darrin William Sirois' charity of choice for this knife is the Purple Heart Homes.

Coming from a Special Ops background, Darrin doesn’t design knives that just work in theory. They need work in action too. And he knows the missing element to any great blade: human input. That’s why you’ll often find him hounding his Special Operations teammates and asking them what they like and don’t like about their knives. Now as part of the Forged by War™ program he’s fine-tuning until his knife-making mission is complete. Along the way, he’s earning nods from awards shows and fellow soldiers all around the world.
