In the field you want a knife that is instinctual when quick CQB environments arise. The Clever Girl is designed to be drawn fast and facilitate saving your skin. As part of the Forged By War™ program,* Austin McGlaun of Columbus, Georgia, designed the Clever Girl to be more than a tool. It was created so you can grab it, use it if necessary, and then go home to your family.
The Clever Girl has an upswept, black powder coated SK5 steel blade. It's a wicked presence, and it's meant to deter and, if needed, it will defend. It has a textured black G-10 handle. A MOLLE compatible sheath is included for multiple carry options.
*The Forged By War™ program is a line of mission-ready tools from CRKT, designed by warriors, with 10% of net profits donated to the veterans' charity of choice.
I'm a die-hard CRKT fan and have been carrying many of their knives for over a decade -- our whole family has. When I saw the Clever Girl I was in love and was going to buy it for myself. Little did I know, my husband saw it too, knew I would love it and purchased it for me as a gift. It's quickly become my favorite fixed blade knife. It's easy to release for my small lady hands, has a nice textured handle, and is brutally sharp.
Just what I was looking for. The knife is well made, reasonably sharp and feels like it was made for my hand. The sheath has a nice tight grip on the blade and the belt clip can be mounted for any carry style. More quality than I expected for the price.
I like my vintage Schrade USA Deerslayer and a bit better. Both have similar blade shape. If you can't find a Deerslayer Knife then buy this one...
