CRKT Thunderbolt Knife by Ron Lake Product Info

The CRKT Thunderbolt Knife is a large, heavy-duty locking liner folder knife, with premium blade steel, aircraft aluminum InterFrame build, a stainless steel clip and the patented LAWKS safety. The larger-model CRKT Thunderbolt Knives are frankly big honkers, weighing in at 7.4 oz. with 3.90" blades. The design of these rugged knives reflects military aircraft history, where the name Thunderbolt is connected both to the P-47 fighter and A-10 fighter bomber. They are both invariably described as "large, rugged, dependable", words which fit Ron Lake's locking liner design for the CRKT Thunderbolt Knife.

The blades are extremely strong dual-grind Tanto-style with a drop point top edge. Blade steel is 8Cr14MoV high-chromium stainless steel with a special non-reflective black oxide coating. Fast one-hand opening is accomplished by a large oval thumb hole with friction grooves on the outboard edge. Ron Lake has designed a large, ergonomic handle with a center swell and grooved areas at the thumb and pommel. These are knives you can use while wearing gloves and under slippery conditions. The 6061 aluminum scales are anodized charcoal gray and CNC-machined with milled pockets to further aid grip. In the center pockets, bronze anodized inserts provide subtle contrast. Our InterFrame build uses dual stainless steel liners, one locking, which are also black oxide coated. Because the CRKT Thunderbolt Knife is expected to be used for the roughest work and sport jobs, it incorporates the patented LAWKS safety, which effectively converts your folder into a virtual fixed blade when actuated.

The Columbia River Thunder Bolt Knife comes with a custom stainless steel clip in a black oxide finish. These are knives you can depend on, just like the storied Thunderbolts of aircraft history.
