With its wide Persian style blade shape and wrapped handle, Corey Brewer designed the CRKT Scrub to be a concealable, capable, and dependable self-defense weapon.

CRKT has always excelled at fixed blades and the SiWi looks to be no exception. Retired Sergeant Major Darrin Sirois conceived the design, and knifemaker Chris Williams helped him refine it. With a 3.4-inch blade in SK5 carbon steel, the SiWi should be a strong and capable companion. It comes with a rigid glass-reinforced sheath.

The second of the CRKT/Richard Rogers collaborations is the Maven, a thicker, heavier-duty knife with a 3.6-inch blade. The liners on this one are much more substantial than on the Cuatro, and the sculpted G-10 scales have a subtle ridge running down their length that helps aid in grip.

There were two Richard Rogers knives on display at the CRKT booth this year, and while pictures might make them look fairly similar – in hand, the differences feel more obvious. The Cuatro is the smaller knife with a 3.2-inch blade and is more gentlemanly with a thin nested liner lock for a sleeker, lighter feel. The Cuatro also features sculpted G-10 scales, an IKBS flipper, and 8Cr14MoV blade steel.

The Caligo is knife designer TJ Schwarz‘s take on the perfect EDC knife. Slick and stealthy, the blacked-out knife has a nester liner lock, aluminum scales, IKBS pivot, and a 3.1-inch 8Cr14MoV cutting edge. Schwarz has a penchant for advanced yet clean visuals, and black-on-black overlays and subtle blue pivot collar are nice accents.

The CRKT Terrestrial is an Eric Ochs design, and it showcases his signature chunky style. There are some nice details here. See if you can catch how the screws attach the G-10 scales to the liners. The deep carry pocket clip is nicely flush with the handle, and the decorative pivot is a nice touch. The 3.35-inch 8Cr13MoV blade rides on IKBS, deploys confidently with a flipper, and features a generous forward finger choil for more ergonomic options.

The CRKT Offbeat’s origins trace all the way back to a Pat Crawford 1979 knife designed to eliminate the need for a separate spring in a lockback mechanism. Not only does this simplify the knife’s construction, but it also allows for its unique pass-through design. And with a 2.9-inch hollow-ground 8Cr13MoV blade and sturdy pocket clip, the Offbeat should make for a unique and utilitarian carry.
