Customer Reviews

Great knife, but not American?!
Zach T. on Jun 4, 2017

This knife is an amazing design and has great heritage, but the best part of it is that it supports our troops. CRKT producing this knife in Taiwan is a real disappointment and cannot possibly capture the passion of a soldier. Come on, CRKT, make the knife in USA!!!
