CRKT Aims for the Stars With the MinimalX Knife

There are few things in EDC that you can actually say are destined for the stars, and one of CRKT’s newest knives, the MinimalistX, is one of them. It’s designed by Darriel Caston of D Rocket Design off of an original custom model called the MaximX, and was built to commemorate a rocket launch for SpaceX.

Its Japanese katana-inspired blade comes in stainless 12C27 steel that deploys via a minimal jimped rear flipper tab on CRKT’s signature IKBS ball bearing pivot and folds into a stainless steel handle that houses a framelock. If you’re looking for an unconventional tanto or cleaver blade in a sleek package that reminds you of the stars, the MinimalX is worth a spot in your space suit—just be careful taking it out on your next spacewalk.
