The CRKT FTWS Tactical Knife is the culmination of two years of work, and the finest tactical fixed blade CRKT has ever manufactured. Because it is designed For Those Who Serve, CRKT has dubbed this knife the Elishewitz F.T.W.S. Designer Allen Elishewitz has carefully considered every facet of the full-tang 6.30" blade. SK 5 carbon steel was chosen for its strength and hardness. The tip is a modified spear point with full width near the tip for penetrating strength. The top of the blade features a four-inch-long flat grind with a chisel ground edge for heavy hacking and chopping tasks. The blade of the CRKT Elishewitz FTWS Knife is black powder coated to resist corrosion and minimize reflectivity.
Likewise, the handle of the CRKT F.T.W.S. Knife is carefully thought out to provide best grip under all conditions. There is a semi-hilt, plus four finger choils and a parrot beak at the end for maximum security. The injection-molded glass filled nylon scales feature an aggressive pyramid texture. The blade tang is taper ground to allow the handle to swell at the palm and become narrower at the end. A lanyard hole is provided.
The CRKT FTWS Knife comes with its own custom-designed tactical sheath. The battle-proven custom black high-strength nylon fabric/glass filled nylon sheath has an injection-molded liner. Dual belt loops are Velcro adjustable. For maximum versatility, there are ample grommets with a length of 550 paracord included, an adjustable leg strap, plus a slotted sheath back that can mount on MOLLE gear. Two removable security handle straps with snaps give access and security, and qualify the system as jump and water operation accepted. A utility pocket with a Fastex buckle will carry a variety of folding knives, multipurpose tools or sharpeners.
The operator today has many fixed blades to choose from. Allen has combined their most successful elements in a fixed blade that is strong, well-balanced, secure to grip, and competitively priced. Best of all, the CRKT FTWS Tactical Knife is a true Elishewitz.
