The CRKT M.A.K.-1 (Multiple Access Knife) was designed by James McGowan, a professional firefighter and a knife designer. It is a rescue and rapid entry knife, made of tough 3Cr13 stainless steel. It has a blunt chisel pry-bar tip for opening doors and windows and a Razor-Sharp knife edge suitable for heavy cutting or hacking tasks. The heavily textured and grooved G10 scales offer an aggressive grip and allow control when wearing gloves.
