CRKT Offbeat II

Three new knives from CRKTDesigned by Pat Crawford, the new CRKT Offbeat II is a lightweight, medium sized folder with a great lockup. CRKT tells us, “Before the CNC machine revolutionized our industry, Pat spent an inordinate amount of time cutting handles out of titanium and fitting folders together by hand. So, to expedite the process, he simplified his design. Inspired by a Boy Scout wire handle folder, he invented the Crawford Lockback—an innovation that has proven its worth and is the defining characteristic of the incredibly unique Offbeat and Offbeat II.”

The satin finished, 3.237″, 8Cr13MoV drop point opens with a thumb stud. Once open, the blade firmly locks into place with the Crawford Lockback. CRKT explains, “As the classic drop point blade is deployed, the cutout slides around the butt end of the blade until it reaches a notch along the backside. Then, it seats snugly into place, effectively locking it. To disengage, push up on the thumb stud and fold it closed.”

The Offbeat II has black glass-reinforced nylon handles. They’re smooth enough to not be hard on the pocket while also providing a great, slip resistant grip. It also has an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip.
