Trending: CRKT Provoke First Responder Knife

Avatar photo

Made in collaboration with custom knife maker Joe Caswell, the Provoke is a modern take on the Karambit knife. What makes it stand out at first glance is its peculiar, yet attractive shape. This shape is the result of its innovating Kinematic manual deployment mechanism. How it works is: while holding the knife, your thumb intuitively rests on the deployment curve, apply light pressure, and the knife will rapidly lunge open. If you want to close it, shift the lever at the base of the loop and nudge the blade back into place. The Provoke features a D2 steel blade that measures 2.14“, which might seem small, but when coupled with the Karambit shape, it becomes very proficient at cutting and slicing. This blade features a Titanium Nitride black finish that, not only makes it look great, but also adds durability and edge retention. The knife is quite pocketable, measuring a little over 5” when closed and weighting in at 6.1 oz. The handles are made out of aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum for extreme toughness. The pocket clip is built around the finger hole and sits flush with the handle, staying out of the way when the Provoke is in use. Finally, what sets this “First Responder” edition of the knife apart is the addition of a ceramic glassbreaker stud for emergency situations and a sheath for portability. Pick one up in the link below.
