New Knife Serves and Protects While its Owners Do the Same.

CRKT® is releasing the Matthew Lerch designed Shrill™. This tactical boot knife knows its place on a mission: keeping you and others safe. It’s a backup knife in the field or a go-to knife in the outdoors, on-duty, and everywhere in-between.

You’re asked to work in all conditions. You should expect the same from your knife. That’s why the Shrill™ features a versatile dual-edged design with a lightweight 4.8” blade. If it wasn’t clipped to your boot, you might not even know it was there. But it makes its presence known when there’s work to be done.

We made the stainless steel handle and polished resin infused fiber overlay tough for all conditions, yet stylish with a distinctive two-tone design. After all, just because you’re battling a 4- alarm or a bad guy in the field doesn’t mean you can’t look good while doing it.

Lerch wanted to create an all-around blade for the active person. From the looks of things, he succeeded.

Just unleash the Shrill™ from its leather sheath attached to your boot or belt. The task at hand doesn’t stand a chance.

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