The CRKT Bear Claw Knife is an extension of your hand that cuts rope and webbing like a razor. The blunt tip prevents point penetration in emergency situations. The curve In the Triple-Point serrated blade concentrates the cutting motion for quick, easy severing of the material. Blade control comes easy with the generous size finger hole and friction grooves on the blade spine, underside and near the tip. The knife is held firmly in its sheath but releases smoothly with a jerk or thumb push. Columbia River Knife & Tool makes the handle and sheath of super tough Zytel(R), an injection molded composite that wears like metal. The clip slips on a lashtab for handy access. The holes and slots in the sheath serve for additional security anchoring of the sheath to your PFD. The clip is removable and can be moved to open toward the handle or tip end of the sheath. When mounted on the lash tab, the knife is oriented for a right-hand draw. The shank of the blade runs the full length of the handle for superior strength. The blade is made of taper ground AUS 4 stainless steel for excellent edge holding and corrosion resistance.
Russ Kommer is a bright young custom knifemaker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years. Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, and since he made the first Bear Claw, he hasn't been able to meet the demand. His original concept was a self-defense knife for women that would be lightweight, easy to access and control. But it seems that every parachutist, bush pilot and commercial fisherman who sees one, wants one.As a result, Russ and CRKT teamed up to make the production Bear Claw, a cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts just like an extension of your hand. It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, especially if their life is going to depend on it.The Bear Claw 2515 features a blade that is full Triple-Point Serrated with a pointed tip. Blades are full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a fine bead-blast finish. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, choil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety. The contoured glass filled nylon handle fills the hand neatly. The Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.2 oz. (The tear-drop-tip model is a bit heavier.)We developed one of our CRKT trademark high-tech sheaths for the Bear Claw that's only 1.1 oz. of tough, durable, injection-molded glass filled nylon. It allows efficient quick release of the knifejust thumb push against the sheath to release smoothly and quietlyor give a sharp pull.It features molded-in threaded fittings for attachment of the wide black stainless steel pocket clip at either end, using the Torx tool and screws provided. The sheath also has a total of seven lanyard holes and belting slots to permit a variety of carry positions, and a lanyard is provided.
