CRKT Sketch

Sure, plenty of high-end premium knives say they’re built for hard use. But lets be real, are you going to want to put your expensive grail knife through the wringer? For that, you need a reliable EDC knife you can count on without worrying about roughing it up. Take the new CRKT Sketch, for example. It’s an affordable everyday carry folder made to be used, not babied.

The Sketch takes design notes from the Squid, another popular EDC knife also by Lucas Burnley. Think of the Sketch as a more rugged workhorse alternative. It starts with the injection-molded handle. It’s not flashy, but it’s made to stand up to bumps and scratches while giving you a firm grip. Then there’s the 2.768″ 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade. It’s formed in a wharncliffe shape that’s great for every utility cutting and slicing task. It’s also coated in black oxide to help it resist staining and wear even more than a regular blade. It opens with a large thumb slot that works even if you have gloves on, and it stays open with a liner lock.

The best part is at its price point you can’t be too worried about wearing it out or getting it dirty. Feel free to tackle your roughest tasks with it. It doesn’t need pampering. Pick one up and see for yourself at the link below.
