CRKT Drifter Frame Lock Knife Stainless Steel (2.875" Satin) 6450S

The 6450S Drifter is a stainless steel framelock folder that is ideal for everyday carry (EDC) with its good looks and slim design. It features a flat titanium nitride-coated frame that is ideally suited for imprinting if you like. It also features a 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blade with a plain edge and a brushed satin finish. A stainless pocket clip is included with this slim knife.

What makes a good logo knife? It should be affordable, and it should have some large flat areas on the blade or frame suitable for logo imprinting. So we are very happy to present the Drifter series. They're high-quality knives that are priced low enough to purchase in quantity, and all have flat areas that are perfect for imprinting by laser or silk screen (you can take them to your local trophy house for personalized engraving).

One Knife to Rule Them All
Taylor H. on Aug 15, 2021

Out of all of the high-end and inexpensive folding knives that I own, this is my favorite. The one I ALWAYS carry with me. Extremely durable, simple, stays sharp long enough and is super easy to resharpen. I absolutely love this knife. It will be the first knife that I buy two of.

Great EDC knife, but...
Paul C. on May 23, 2019

I absolutely love the drifter for a quick EDC. For the price, you really can't beat it. No play in the blade, decent metal and great size for EDC. I have used mine a lot and have had no issues. Some things could be improved, such as the pocket clip, but again, for the price... All that being said, there are a lot of great EDC knives out there and you should carry what you like. I wouldn't look at this knife to replace anything like a delica 4 or whatever.

good work knife
Paul W. on Sep 30, 2020

I've had this knife for several years and it has held up quite well getting beat up at work. the lockup is still good and the blade resharpens easily. my only complaint is that the pocket clip is tip down only, but for a utilitarian knife it doesn't bother me too much

Nice slick looking folder for the price
christos m. on Jul 28, 2017

Blade is centered, good lock up, comes out smooth and at a decent speed. I do have issue that the pocket clip rides high and presents the sharp edge of the frame. Meaning you're gonna scratch the knife, yourself or, something expensive somewhere down the line if your not careful. For the price if you need something to give as a gift or daily I think its great, if your a knife guy I'd probably pass it over.

Blade not sharp and bad clip design
Jason G. on Mar 4, 2016

First the positives: It's cheap, it's a nice size, frame lock is great (good lock engagement and zero blade play), and opens quickly, easily and consistently with the thumbstuds. Now on to what I didn't like... 1) The blade is not sharp out of the box. I can run my finger along the blade and not get cut. 2) The clip (while it looks great) is tip-down only and is made of really thick metal. It is VERY tight, to the point that I have trouble clipping it on some of my pockets. A solid knife hampered by a couple key issues that limit my carrying it.
