CRKT Bear Claw™

Russ Kommer is a bright young custom knifemaker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years.

Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, and since he made the first Bear Claw™, he hasn't been able to meet the demand. His original concept was a self-defence knife for women that would be lightweight, easy to access and control. But it seems that every parachutist, bush pilot and commercial fisherman who sees one, wants one. As a result, Russ and CRKT® teamed up to make the production Bear Claw, a cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts like an extension of your hand.

It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, significantly if their life depends on it. The CRKT Bear Claw features a Triple-Point™ Serrated edge with a tear drop tip for fast cutting without the threat of point penetration— making it ideal for law enforcement and emergency rescue personnel. The blade is full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a polished finish to resist corrosion. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, choil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety.

The CRKT Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.4 oz. CRKT® developed one of their trademark high-tech sheaths for the Bear Claw that's only 1.1 oz. of tough, durable, injection-moulded glass-filled nylon. It allows efficient, quick release of the knife—just thumb push against the sheath to release smoothly and quietly—or give a sharp pull.

It features moulded-in threaded fittings to attach the wide black stainless steel pocket clip at either end, using the Torx® tool and screws.

The sheath also has seven lanyard holes and belting slots to permit various carrying positions with the provided lanyard.
