New Tactical Offerings from CRKT

Sangrador

Columbia River Knife and Tool introduced a wide range of new products for 2016. Among them were a variety of knives and other tools in its Tactical line. Here is a quick look at three of them.

Sangrador

The Sangrador is a dagger style knife with a dual edged blade. Designed by Darrin William Sirois who comes from the special operations community, the Sangrador is part of the CRKT Forged by War program. CRKT uses SK5 steel for the 5.5″ fixed blade. The knife is black powder coated and has Tom Veff designed serrations on part of the blade. Handles are made of G10, and the knife comes with a sheath that is compatible with PALS webbing. The MSRP is $150.

Shrill

Shrill

Another fixed blade knife, the Shrill is design for boot carry and comes with a specially design sheath for that purpose. It has a 4.8″ blade with a spear point to “pierce anything in sight.” The blade is made of 8Cr13Mov steel and has a titanium nitride finish. The handle is made of a polished resin infused fiber that is similar to G10. The MSRP is $70.

Trencher

Trencher

Rounding out the new tactical tools is the Trencher. A new take on the entrenching tool concept, this 27″ shovel has a threaded locking collar to lock the tool head into one of three positions. Along one edge of the shovel head is a saw blade. The opposite side of the head has a beveled cutting blade. The tip of the shovel head is reinforced for prying. The Trencher comes with a nylon sheath and retails for $100.

Other knives that CRKT has recently introduced include a series of wooden knives and Ruger branded knives.

    Tactical is fine, but if they’re not going to offer a STRATEGIC option I’m just not interested.

      Holding out for quixotic and ill-conceived myself… come to think of it that would probably be available from BUDK.

    OMG! The music is soo good. LOL. Is that the theme to an old western?
    SHOVEL for EVERYTHING!

      Where I live, this shovel is no match for the rocks in the soil. I can swing a maddox as hard as I can, and get 1/2″ in and thunk, a rock!

        Never mind, I’m buying one just for 3:59. This rivals any Lynn Thompson Cold Steel meat filled denim demonstrations.

          I was expecting to find a Chinese Billy Mays pop up, but its China. Everything is a group effort brought to us by the state. LOL.

            Funnily enough this is private enterprise, according to what I’ve read it’s not used by the chinese military, though the reviews say it is a pretty solid piece of kit. Still trying to work out if I can justify buying one myself 😛

        • I lose it every time at the double shovel “oar” setup!

        Sounds like you need a broomshakalaka

  • Southpaw89

    They have some cool products, but I’d be more inclined to buy them if they were made in the USA, they’re already priced for it.
