Smoky Mountain Knife Works is now offering the CRKT Obake at an unbelievable price of $19.99. That’s $40 less than the $59.99 MSRP. If you’re looking for a great EDC, tactical stocking stuffer, the Obake might be the right knife at the right price this holiday season.
The 7.6″ fixed blade Obake features a 3.64″ 8Cr14MoV steel blade with a gorgeous etched Titanium-Nitride finish. Lucas Burnley designed the original Obake and CRKT tells us that, “the Obake™ is an artful combination of a classical knife style built with modern-day materials and techniques. It’s another example of Burnley’s belief that knives are a personal expression of independence. And this one makes a statement when you bring it out for action.”
“A throwback to a classic Japanese Kwaiken design, it features a full tang fixed blade with a unique gray titanium nitride finish that’s acid-etched to give each knife a distinct look. It’s like he made the blade exclusively for you to throw down when the need for utility comes up,” CRKT says.
The Obake features a strong kydex sheath with a unique carry option. “A paracord lanyard on the sheath is designed to attach to your belt loop and keep the sheath in place when you deploy the knife. A skull bead adds a not-so-subtle accent to the paracord lanyard,” says CRKT. Have a look at the video below. Deployment and carry are rather unique with the Obake, and the system really seems to work.
