CRKT Squid D2

Over the past few years CRKT has really stepped up their game by putting out great EDC knives with unique designs and superior feature sets at a more affordable price point. A great example is the crowd favorite Squid—a compact folding knife designed by Lucas Burnley, boasting a stout blade and a solid frame lock. Despite its popularity, more discerning EDCers felt the cheaper 8Cr13MoV steel in the blade held it back from being a top contender for the best bang-for-your-buck blade. CRKT heard it all loud and clear and recently updated the Squid with premium D2 tool steel and a new, blacked out stonewash finish to match. If you haven't had a chance to see what the hype is about, now's the best time to add this little big knife to your rotation.

Compared to the original knife, the upgraded Squid D2 has a stronger, more robust steel that's achieves a higher hardness than 8Cr13MoV, leading to a sharper edge and better edge retention overall. It's also able to take more of a beating, making those hard-use tasks that come up every once in a while something you don't have to sweat about at all, especially with the reliable frame lock at the handle. Besides the steel this updated Squid keeps the stout drop-point blade shape that made the original a solid contender. At just 2.156” in length, it's small and pocketable while being more versatile for carry, especially in places with stricter blade length regulations. At the tip of the blade is a well-defined point for easy piercing, and the pronounced curve near the tip also lends to ease of use when it comes to delicate slicing tasks. With its large ambidextrous thumbstud, finding the blade and opening it quickly is easy. It's set up for right-handed tip-up carry, but it also has a lanyard hole at the pommel if you prefer carrying this small knife in that way.

With the new Squid D2, CRKT has taken a great everyday carry blade and made it even better by giving it the blade steel the original design deserved. If you sat on the original design because of the steel, now's the time to pick it up. And if this is your first EDC knife, it lets you get high quality steel in your hands at a manageable price point. Check out the CRKT Squid D2 now at the link below.

CRKT Pilar Large D2

The minimalist aesthetic of the CRKT Pilar made it one of the most sought-after everyday carry knives of the past year. It paired Jesper Voxnaes's clean design language with an incredibly useful cleaver-style blade that made it handy to have on hand in a pinch. This year, with a slight increase to its dimensions and a noted improvement to the design materials, it's ready to take on even bigger tasks than before. And from the looks of it, the CRKT Pilar Large D2 has the potential to outdo itself this year.

With this edition of the Pilar Large, the biggest departure from the original design is its black blade and blacked-out handle. The new knife has grippy G10 scaling on one side of the handle instead of smooth stainless steel. This makes the knife easier to hold when you're doing rougher work overall, and it works especially well when things get slippery. Interestingly enough, the G10 also makes this larger Pilar weigh less than the original, at 3.8 ounces instead of 4.2. For less weight, you get a slightly larger grip on the blade, a win-win situation if there ever was one. And in keeping with the more tactical black theme, the reverse side of the handle features black-oxide tinted stainless steel, and the same reliable frame lock featured on the earlier edition of the Pilar.

If the handle gives you more confidence in this edition of the knife, the upgraded D2 steel in the Pilar Large should do so even more. For one, it's a harder steel at 60-61 HRC, capable of handling more heavy-duty tasks before needing to be resharpened compared to the original Pilar blade. The blacked-out blade is also approximately 0.2 inches longer in length, bringing it up to 2.669” and giving you a slightly longer cutting edge than before. It also retains the utility-minded cleaver-style shape of the original, making it well-suited for everyday cutting and slicing tasks. A new addition of a flipper tab makes for quick, one handed operation but it still retains its large thumbhole as another deployment option.

If you missed out on the Pilar last year, or you sat on it because of its stainless handle and its cheaper steel, the new design might be for you. With the Pilar Large D2, CRKT has taken a crowd-favorite knife and made it even better, with premium materials and a fresh look about it. Make it a part of your EDC today at the link below.

CRKT M16-02KS

A good pocket knife can be one of those useful tools in your arsenal, but it can also be one of the most expensive. Luckily, that doesn’t have to be the case. When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck few knives did it like the CRKT M16. Designed by the late Kit Carson, the M16's tactical looks, ergonomic handle, and game-changing flipper open mechanism made it an instant EDC classic. The new M16-02KS follows in those same footsteps with upgraded materials and features at an affordable price point, just like the original.

This time around the M16-02KS features a tanto blade made of 12C27 Sandvik steel with a black oxide finish (a step up from the original's 8Cr15MoV), making for a stealthy look that goes hand in hand with its tactical design. The blade itself is roughly 3 inches in length which is perfect for everyday tasks, and the plain edge makes it easy to get the precise cut you want.

A knurled and easy to reach thumb stud allows for one-handed deployment, but also has a Carson flipper opening in honor of the knife maker. The blade now locks with a frame lock mechanism instead of the original's locking liner. The handles get upgraded to 2Cr13 stainless steel, complete with weight-saving holes for a durable knife that won’t weigh your pockets down at 3.7 ounces.

And if you’re looking for versatility, the pocket clip can be mounted in four different positions. So whether you prefer to carry tip-up or tip-down this knife has you covered. For a fresh take on a classic pocket knife, the CRKT M16-02KS is a solid option for anyone that wants a practical blade for EDC but doesn’t want to break the bank.

CRKT Pryma Multi-tool

At the end of the day, there are just some tasks your knife wasn't meant to do. There's even a good chance these things come up more often in your day to day than any precise cutting task. You know the type: prying, opening bottles, scraping, and opening boxes. All of that can do a real number on your knife, which is why it's a good idea to carry a tool to handle the rest. The CRKT Pryma is an inconspicuous tool designed by Jesper Voxnaes to be put through whatever your knife shouldn't, equipped with a built-in carabiner for effortless keychain carry.

The star of the show is the multi-purpose pry bar on the business end of the Pryma. Besides prying, it's thick enough for scraping, coming to a sharp yet finger-safe point that's ideal for puncturing packing tape when opening boxes. Towards the middle of the body, you have access to multiple wrenches and a bottle opener. The back end of the Pryma is where its toolset gets interesting. It features a carabiner for easy carry on a belt loop, bag, or keychain, finally coming to an emergency glass breaker. The two wings on the sides of the Pryma act as safety choils when holding it in a hammerfist grip, letting you confidently strike a window in an emergency without risking injury from the impact.

The Pryma does it all in a compact package at just 3.235” long, weighing 0.9oz. It's built from 3Cr13 steel available in a stonewashed black finish. For a day-to-day companion to your EDC knife that'll have your back in an emergency too, pick up the Pryma at the link below.
