CRKT McGinnis-Shrimp Keychain Knife Product Info

The CRKT Shrimp Knife is a compact pocket knife that reinvents the whole concept of the keychain knife. Designed by Gerry McGinnis with premium quality materials and imagea big knife build, the CRKT Shrimp Knife is not a toy, but a real sport and work knife. The only difference is that it has a 1.75" blade and a 2.5" handle. The blade is made of premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel in a high satin finish. Although short, this CRKT Knife is fully featured, with a modified drop point shape with recurve. It is high hollow ground and has a slight swedge on the top edge. It is opened by a large CNC-milled nail notch. There are aggressive friction grooves on the spine for the thumb. But most impressively, the blade of the Columbia River Shrimp Knife is a full 0.125" (3.2 mm) thick, a width common on much larger folders.

The CRKT McGinnis-Shrimp Folding Mini-Knife has a frame-lock build, eliminating the need for separate liners. The right side frame is 3Cr13 stainless steel on all models. The left frame is 6061 anodized aluminum on the colored models, and stainless steel on the bead-blast model 1181. The left frame is skeletonized to save weight. To aid grip, there are two finger choils and the frame has a rounded contour. The combination of thick blade, solid frame lock and large blade pivot means that this is one shrimp that doesn't wiggle!

But there's more to the story. Just like CRKT's larger knives, the Columbia River Knife and Tool Shrimp Knife has a removable stainless steel pocket clip in bead-blast finish. Torx fasteners are used throughout. There are lubrous washers at the blade pivot. And there's a small key chain loop that folds out of the frame. And finally, CRKT has added a back spacer of moonglow plastic that glows in the dark, so you can quickly find your CRKT Shrimp at night. The CRKT Shrimp Knife is priced so anyone can afford one as a key chain knife, a money clip knife, a first knife, or a gift knife. And please remember, the name Shrimp is not intended as an insult, but as a term of endearment for a tough little guy.
