The CRKT Tuition is a compact and powerful work knife that is just right for shop and outdoor tasks. The broad sheepsfoot 2.88” blade has a high hollow grind that gives fast cutting, accurate trimming and excellent tip strength. Blade steel is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel in a satin finish. One-hand opening is fast using the friction-grooved flipper, which also acts as a blade guard when open. While stubby, the Tuition handle is shaped for grip, swelling at the palm and offering a deep finger choil that transitions into the flipper blade guard, plus thumb friction grooves.
