DU HOC™

Designed by Austin McGlaun in Columbus, Georgia
Built on an American hero’s legacy. It wasn’t until half a century after he served, that Forged by War® designer Austin McGlaun discovered his late uncle won the Silver Star at Point Du Hoc. To honor his service, he designed this colossal karambit fixed blade knife. With the help of Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, it’s been perfected as a mission-inspired eye catcher from the tip of the recurved blade to the thumb ring at the end of the handle.
  • SK5 high carbon steel with an increased level of manganese for a perfect balance of toughness and edge holding ability
  • Tough G10 handles for exceptional grip in all conditions
  • Gear compatible glass-reinforced nylon sheath can be strapped anywhere on your kit

Built on an American hero’s legacy. It wasn’t until half a century after he served, that Forged by War® designer Austin McGlaun discovered his late uncle won the Silver Star at Point Du Hoc. To honor his service, he designed this colossal karambit fixed blade knife. With the help of Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, it’s been perfected as a mission-inspired eye catcher from the tip of the recurved blade to the thumb ring at the end of the handle.

As a part of the Forged By War® program, Austin’s design matched with Ryan’s expertise makes the Du Hoc™ a powerful tactical carry. An ominous 5” carbon steel recurved blade—sharp on the nose and the belly—is a dependable companion in a self-defense situation. A thumb ring sits proudly atop the textured G10 handle for an unbreakable traditional karambit-style grip.

With an intentionally-designed knife comes a secure, customizable sheath. Crafted of tough glass-reinforced nylon, ease of access and safety of draw is unmatched.

With a history like this one, the Du Hoc™ was practically born on the front line.


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 warriors, with a portion of the CRKT profits donated back to the veterans' charity of choice.

Austin McGlaun's charity of choice for this tool is Purple Heart Homes.

Austin McGlaun

Columbus, Georgia 

There are those who fight with knives. There are others who design them. And then…there’s Austin. Having served in the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq, and as a street cop in Columbus, GA, he knows that a knife has to work as both a weapon and a tool. As part of the Forged By War™ program he applied his skills as both a combat vet and knife maker to develop the Clever Girl™. Not to mention a new way to bring his fellow soldiers home. When asked about his design philosophy, he’ll tell you that if a knife is ugly but effective, it’s not ugly. It’s perfect.
