Pat and Wes Crawford, custom knifemakers in West Memphis, Arkansas, have produced many successful folder designs for CRKT over the years, many with mid-level blade steels and Zytel scales. Heres our new idea: lets make a Crawford folder series that is as close to a custom knife as possible, using premium blade steel and natural materials. Logically, we decided to call it the Natural series. Available in two sizes, these are extremely heavy-duty frame-lock folders with our patented lightning-fast OutBurst assisted opening.And the scales are hand-shaped black Micarta with jeweled bolsters and a removable satin stainless steel pocket/gear clip. When it comes to grip, this folder has it all: a good-size handle, butt pommel, two deep finger choils and thumb friction grooves on the spine. Similar in design to their big brother, these three smaller personal carry folders have a 3.25 blade, also of polished premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. The thick stainless steel frame is engine turned, or jeweled, as is the custom stainless steel clip.
They are really overbuilt for long life. All three also have dual thumb studs and OutBurst assisted opening, as well as file work on the polished stainless steel back spacer. When it came to choosing scales from custom-knife materials, we had trouble deciding between natural white bone, natural jig bone, and black Micarta®.
They looked so good, we decided to produce all three. So heres our bet: If you were walking through a custom knife show, and you picked up any of these Naturals without the CRKT logo, you would think, Wow, a Crawford custom! And except for the value price, youd be pretty darned close. Very well made''Legal Carry Sized'' (If local laws in your area permit locking, assisted folders) Very nice, quick assist mechanism.
