We’re just gonna say, we’d really like to meet Erich Ochs, designer of the CRKT Apoc. He took an imaginary post-apocalyptic toolbox and imagined what knife he could make out of whatever was there. Not only that, he made his knife the visual manifestation of alliteration. While all that delights our nerdy little souls, what’s most delightful is the knife itself.
The overall look of the Apoc just rugged, rough, and tough that looks like it was hastily beaten out of scrap metal over the nearest flat surface. It has a 3.98” 8Cr13MoV blade with a Mohawk spine and a blade thickness of 0.14”. Because he included IKBS ball bearings, this flipper quickly opens with a seriously solid thwack. It’s available in either a plain edge or with Veff serrations.
This framelock is no tiny knife that will practically disappear in your pocket. Oh no, this is a full-sized EDC with an overall length of 9” and a carry weight of about 6 ounces. It has G-10 handle scales and a comfortably slip resistant grip. At 5.1” closed it’s big enough for even larger-sized grips. It also has a tip-up pocket clip and lanyard hole.
