Jeremy Valdez of Olalla, Washington brings combat experience and time served in the 7th Special Forces Group to the aptly named Septimo™ Multi-Tool; a tribute meaning “seventh” in Spanish. Designed in the spirit of his tactical folding knife by the same name, the main motivation for this multi-tool design arises from his 2009 deployment to Afghanistan. During combat operations, Jeremy was involved in a helicopter crash. In the chaotic aftermath, the small folder he had failed to perform when he was cutting straps and moving debris while pulling fellow soldiers out of the burning, tangled chopper wreckage.
Duty to his fallen comrades and brothers and sisters in arms drove him to design the Septimo™ and now the Septimo™ Multi-Tool variation with a thumb stud opening, a desert-proof black oxide finish, and friction points on the handle to help deal with inclement conditions. It was given a single Veff Serration™ for impressively effective strap cutting ability.
In addition to the powerful blade, the Septimo™ Multi-Tool features both a Phillips and flathead screwdriver, a bottle opener, and an adjustable wrench with a strong glass breaker.
Some are born of novelty. The Septimo™ is born of purpose.
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 a portion of the proceeds donated to the veterans' charity of choice.
Mission ready tools that are Forged By War®.

Jeremy Valdez's charity of choice for this tool is the Green Beret Foundation.
Upon meeting Jeremy Valdez, our definiton of “American hero” shifted. He epitomizes bravery; after serving 14 years as a Special Forces Green Beret he’s serrved as the vice chief ambassador for the foundation. Further, he’s been recognized with two purple hearts, six bronze stars, one for valor, and the Special Forces Philip Neri award. So when renowned designer Bill Harsey stepped in to help Jeremy realize his longtime dream of designing his own knives, we jumped in to lend a hand. We’re proud to represent him and his breakout design in our Forged By War® program.
