CRKT Hole In One Knife - Side-Folding Utility Knife by Tom Hitchcock Product Info

The CRKT Hole in One Knife was the brainchild of Tom Hitchcock, an industrial designer based in Talent, Oregon. This CRKT Knife integrates two trends for a knife with finger holes, and a side-opener design. The result is a much safer, friendlier utility knife. The CRKT Hole in One Side-Folding Knife features a perimeter frame made from a single piece of 420J2 stainless steel, formed to fit the hand. The frame is split with swells at the top, bottom and butt to add more comfort without adding weight. The blade shape was then dictated by the handle shape, which CRKT has dubbed a "Hitchcock blade." The CRKT Hole-in-1 Utility Knife has a high flat grind with a gently curved Razor-Sharp edge.

The CRKT Hole In One Knife has a locking mechanism that locks it both open and closed. Most importantly, when the knife is gripped tightly during use, the lock also grips tighter for increased safety. To open the Columbia River Hole In One blade, simply press down on the lock release lever, and rotate it to either side. Continue rotating until the lock snaps firmly into place in the open position. This is a fast one-hand operation. Because there is no conventional clip, it is a completely ambidextrous knife.

The design of this side-opener knife gives many grip options. The index finger can go through the blade hole, or grasp either the frame finger choil, or even the blade finger choil if greater control is necessary. Tom also designed a spring-loaded carry carabiner (non-weight-bearing) so you can securely hang the CRKT Hole In One Knife on belt loops, D-rings, webbing or lanyards. It also will work as a bottle and jar opener. Both blade and frame have a durable non-reflective bead-blast finish. The CRKT Hole in One Utility knife is a versatile, fun, outdoor knife that is made to last a long time - ideal for everything from opening packages to cooking dinner.
