Cosmic Design Inspires an Extraordinary Folder: CRKT’s Hirin

CRKT does something truly marvelous with the Hirin blade: it combines a minimalist, almost airy design with ultra-tough materials to strike the perfect balance between form and function.

The Italian-crafted folding knife weighs just 5.9 ounces, thanks to the super-strong-yet-lightweight titanium used for the handle. The 3.39-inch spear-point blade is forged from Super Dense Twist Damasteel, which maximizes cutting, edge retention, and durability.



It’s insanely tough so you can use it at any campsite, or jungle adventure, and its Japanese design delivers amazing efficiency, balance, and user-friendliness. Thanks to the IKBS ball bearing and smooth-action flipper, a quick flick of your wrist will have the knife open and ready to get cutting.
