Good news! More knives will be here soon.

CRKT's Razel series, designed by Jon and Josh Graham of Graham Knives in Tennessee, has captured the attention of every craftsman who has seen them. Many insisted that CRKT make a folding version and the Razel Folder followed. The Razel Folder is an impressive knife with a Micarta handle rounded with a deep finger choil, pommel swell, grip notches at the finger tips, and jimping at the spine. The stainless steel InterFrame build with locking liner and integrated CRKT patented LAWKS safety effectively converts the folding Razel into a virtual fixed blade. The CRKT Razel utilizes a 8CR13MoV stainless steel blade for strength and durability. A removable stainless steel clip is included.

Long discontinued get it now! Run don't walk.

Love the design, can't afford the upscale versions, and you shouldn't pass at this price.
Before you decide how you like the action or the lockup, snap it open 50-100 times with a wrist flick. You'll then find the action is smooth, the lockup at least 50% and the lawks engages flawlessly.
My only gripe so far, wow loctite on the big clip, I can't get the damn thing off, to go only Graham mini clip.
Cris T.
This knife is just ok. I guess it's worth $20, but the lock doesn't really work on mine so it lives in the drawer now.
I must have gotten lucky...
Chris K.
I can't believe this thing was only $22. It's got a unique blade design, a very unique clip, and great micarta scales. It's also rather heavy duty. Mine came with the blade perfectly centered and the action working pretty flawlessly as well. This is probably one of the best CRKT knives I've received out of the box with the exception of blade sharpness, but for $22 who cares? A quick sharpening and now that it's shaving hair it's a very enjoyable knife to carry with a unique design you can't find anywhere else at this price.
Itís ok
Spencer C.
I love the look and feel of this knife in hand but after a few weeks of using it the blade is very off center, rubbing against one side of the frame when closing, as well as being very loose when closed. It is still solid when opened.
Unique knife

Itís ok

Knife came broken
Ryan D.
I loved the design so much i knew i wanted one but it came with a bad action the blade was touching the inside liner and the back lock would not engage i was disappointed with this but crkt did take care of it and gave me credit on their website . disspointing though.

CRKT makes a great rendition of a Custom Razel Folder. I owned one of Graham's first Razel fixed blades and it served me well. I trust this knife will do the same. One note, CRKT includes the custom rear clip. I attached it, but found it uncomfortable in my hand. This does not affect my opinion that this folder is a winner. Great job CRKT!!.
Makes a great box opener

First, the LAWKS lock could be removed. It is more annoying than anything else. If it were not for that I would have given this a solid 4, the other complaint being the tip has a better profile than the main blade, but that was easy enough to fix. Overall it is a great utility knife, and with a little work makes a great everyday carry option.
Erik U.
Iíve owned probably 10 CRKT knives and the brand has always left me a little cold. CRKT has such amazing designs but they seem to make them in a way that cuts corners to keep the cost down. Aside from the blade steel this knife has, they seem to have not cut many corners, I would prefer it on bearings but oh well. The blade came centered and razor sharp for its thickness. (Even the front blade is sharp enough to slice phone book paper) the fit and finish is nice and it comes with a razel clip and a standard deep carry clip, I immediately removed the deep carry clip since I prefer the razel clip. All in all a great bargain and since these are discontinued I could get one while you can.
Great Hard Use Knife
James R.
This is the knife I carry on the weekends to work around the house, yard, and garage. The blade shape is perfect for a whole host of projects.

It's too heavy and huge to EDC to the office, but if I'm not at my day job it's in my pocket.

It feels great in the hand. Even though the micarta is very smooth, the handle shape provides a strong grip, so it's not going anywhere.

On other knives, the LAWKS system can seem unnecessary, but on a blade that I often use as a chisel or scraper, and really bear down on, I like the added security.

I'd pay a lot more for a tool this good. At the price you can get it here, it's a bargain.
Nice intro to CRKT for sure
Adam S.
Centered blade, smooth action, impressive!!
Poor quality control or maybe poor design.
Ryan H.
I picked this up like others to have a Graham designed blade on the cheap. Expectations were maybe a little high due to YouTube praise. The blade was so far off center from the factory it scraped the liners when opening. I sent it back because, even for a Chinese made blade... I expect more from Crkt. I probably would never have carried it anyways because I don't like tip down carry but for the price it was decent enough to add to the collection. Then also like an "Xzhibit meme" from the internet "we heard you like locks so much, we put a LAWKs on your liner lock"... What is next, a lock for the LAWKs system too? I was so disappointed in the fit and finish of the knife I sent messages to CRKT and BladeHQ.

Hopefully CRKT will redesign something like this with tip up and tip down maybe, no lawks, and reasonable blade centering.

BladeHQ was awesome as always and took care of it and refunded the purchase.
Blade HQ response:
We're very sorry to hear about the trouble you're having. Have you contacted our customer service department yet ( We'd like to help you get this resolved. Thanks -BHQ
Not bad for the price
justin g.
Currently on sale for barely over $20, this is a decent value in a unique blade design. The LAWKS lever does not need to be there.
Lets face it, I bought it because of the price...
Mike P.
Saying that. For the price, it is excellent. I also bought it because I was curious about the usefulness of the blade shape. 8cr13mov I have always found to be a decent "working" blade steel, really easy to sharpen, and it doesnt tend to mind a little dirt and moisture. I work in the Automotive industry, and let me tell you, that blunt nose scraping blade makes the knife!!! Its size and heft here is appreciated. This is a working knife, not an EDC. And for me its become my new work go-to. I say that not liking any other CRKT I have bought and owned...
Could be better
Mike M.
CRKT get so close to making a good knife, and then they drop the ball. This is my 4th CRKT purchase.

I'll start with the good. The knife feels good in the hand. It fills it up, but it's not too big. I think it looks cool(blade and handle). The lock up is pretty good and I like the secondary lock. The pocket clip is actually comfortable and the knife rides well in the pocket.

The bad holds more weight. The blade is so off center that it drags across the liner while it's being closed. The grind is uneven on mine. The micarta scales are so thick that it makes it difficult to use the thumb stud to deploy the blade.

I would've paid much more for a better quality knife in this same style design. $23.00 = you get what you pay for
Amazing knife for the price.
reece c.
I was so surprised by the quality of this knife. The edges come razor sharp, and the ergonomics are great. The handle is beefy and is usable with gloves. There's also a locking mechanism for safety. For the money this is the single best CRKT knife you can buy. Highly recommended.
