A classic with a harsh edge.
The name Kova™ springs from Finnish origin, meaning "tough, hard, or demanding a lot of effort to endure."
Designed by veteran knife designer Ken Steigerwalt, the front lock folding knife's strength and durability aren't just in its name; it's how it rises to confront daily tasks and challenges. When Ken Steigerwalt was a child and needed a knife, he would go and make one; now, he is a renowned designer with 35 years of knives under his belt.
The CRKT Kova™ was inspired by older-style central lock and back locking knives; Ken chose a front lock design utilising the knife's liners as springs for the front lock, thus creating even more area for the blade.
Simplifying the internal mechanism also influenced the exterior design making the knife more convenient to hold, with far less need to change your grip when opening or closing.
With a 3.5" drop point blade and glass-reinforced nylon handles to show off the fine pattern work, the Kova™' is a reliable EDC. With the front lock design, there's no question this heavy-duty knife will delight both right and left-handed users, with the power to open and close the knife with a single hand.
For those looking for an everyday saviour, choose the Kova™ for strength and simplicity.
