Razelcliffe Compact Blackout: Small But Truly Mighty

CRKT is well-known for its tough, ultra-versatile knives, built with both innovation and quality in mind. The Razelcliffe Compact Blackout takes both of these to the next level with a design that challenges the standard blade shapes and delivers a truly durable tool.

Its 2.14” D2 steel blade is smaller and stubbier than any other knife on the market, but both the resin-infused fiber handle and chisel blade design makes it perfectly suited for both scraping and cutting. Thanks to the flipper and IKBS ball bearing, you can smoothly flip the knife open in a second, and the frame lock bar keeps it securely locked in open position no matter how heavy-duty your task. Best of all, at just 3.34” long when closed, it slides easily into any pocket so you can take it anywhere you go.
