A featherweight knife built for whatever ends up on the camp menu.
When even just the slightest excess weight matters, the CRKT Biwa™ /bee-wah/ is the fixed-blade knife of choice for hunting and fishing. At a mere 45.3 grams, it tucks away as inconspicuously as a few extra dry flies but comes out swinging when that catch hits your line.
Designer Alan Folts of Melbourne, Florida, created the custom knife that was to become the Biwa™ after enduring pressure from his minimalist hunting friends to create a do-it-all hunting knife that was lightweight. Named after a species of Japanese trout, the Biwa™ punches the mark.
The long distal taper on the satin-finished blade is a powerhouse for paring, capping, and more. Crafted with the checkering on the G10 handle so that you’ll know just where the blade is, even if the whole knife slips out of sight. A strong, injection-moulded sheath lashes easily to a pack or quickly becomes a neck knife.
Creatures of the wild outdoors, beware!
