If there’s one knife designer you should have on your radar by now, it’s Jesper Voxnaes. He’s the mastermind behind smash hit EDC knives like the CRKT Amicus and CRKT Pilar (which now sits as the 5th most popular knife on our site). This time around with the new CRKT Piet, he brings urban inspiration to his utilitarian design language, resulting in a sleeker, lighter, and slimmer knife than his past offerings. If you’ve been meaning to get your hands on a Voxnaes design to EDC in the city, the Piet might be right up your alley.

Even in this lighter weight, city-slicking knife, you can see Voxnaes’s utility-driven design language throughout. It starts with the choice of a glass reinforced-fiber polyamide handle that helps the Piet weigh in at just 2.5oz, which rides more comfortably in the pocket compared to a heavier knife like the 4.2oz CRKT Pilar. An enlarged thumbhole makes for easy one-handed deployment of its 2.69" blade. A plain edge and drop point blade shape offer versatility for most everyday cutting tasks, while a full finger choil and liner lock ensure control and security during hard use. Last but not least, 8Cr13MoV steel on the blade is low maintenance and performs well for the price, making it ideal for an everyday carry.

Other hallmark Voxnaes design details round out the knife as a solid EDC. A contrasting blue back spacer also has moderate jimping for extra grip in your palm. The polyamide handle features a subtle yet tactile textured pattern throughout for improved grip while keeping a low profile. Finally, a reversible pocket clip allows for tip up, ambidextrous carry and a lanyard hole enables quick retrieval from your pocket. You can pick up this new Voxnaes design for your EDC at the link below.

Amazon will not ship this knife to NYC.
So much for it being an "urban" knife.

Manufacturer's need to be more mindful of the dumb laws states and cities put in place. Thank Ex-Mayor Bloomberg for this one.

Thank goodness for smaller online vendors.

It always makes me nervous to see a gap in the blade like that, it looks like it's susceptible to breaking easier.

Well Spyderco has been using holes in their knives for years. I'm sure they'd stop if breakage were a consistent problem.

Anyway an under three inch "Urban" knife probably isn't meant for heavy duty use much less abuse.

Having said that I still wish SOG would bring black the Flash 1. That's my idea of an urban knife (setting aside laws governing knives).
