Slacker

CRKT Slacker

When it comes to your everyday carry knife, you want something that can get things done, even if it means the dirty jobs. But don't let this knife's name fool you—the CRKT Slacker designed by Ken Onion is far from it. Based on a custom knife he made to be his personal EDC, the Slacker is a minimal design featuring CRKT's innovative Field Strip technology. It's one of the few easy-to-disassemble knives with an elegant, low-profile design without the bulk that other Field Strip knives tend to have. The end result is a highly-practical and functional knife that's well-suited to be your daily driver.

The smooth curves and organic lines of a Ken Onion design are visible everywhere you look with the Slacker. It starts with the slender 3.324” modified drop-point blade with an attractive satin finish with an 1.4116 stainless steel edge made to excel at everyday cutting and slicing tasks. The slight curve at the top of the blade makes it easier to manipulate in smaller spaces, and the jimping at the middle spine of the blade offers more control. And bringing the knife to bear when you need it is easy with its flipper opening, doubling as a finger guard at the bolster when deployed.

The handle is made of aerospace grade 6061 aluminum, helping keep the Slacker lightweight at 2.8 ounces. But unlike a lot of knives with metal handles, the Slacker has diamond texturing at the side to help your grip when things get wet and slippery. And the curved lines of the handle also let you get a full grip on the knife despite its compact size. The centerpiece of the design is the Field Strip mechanism in the pivot, which lets you fully disassemble the knife for maintenance, without any other tools necessary. It's good for routine fixes, but it really shines in the outdoors after taking on tough and dirty tasks. But whether you take the Slacker out to the field or in your pockets during your daily commute, it's ready to take on any challenge you meet while looking good to boot.
