Description
CR6612GN: 6612N Mt. Rainer
Columbia River
 
Sometimes your life depends on the tools you select—tools such as your pitons, ice axe, crampons and knife. Because climbers regard reaching the summits of the 14,000 ft. North American peaks as the pinnacle of achievement, we named this popular line the 14K Summit series. 

The Long's Peak and Mt. Rainier are the middle size of the series, with 2.875" blades. They are ideal utility knives, large enough to undertake serious cutting tasks. 

We began with our powerful InterFrame locking liner construction in an easily cleaned open build, with nickel chrome plated zinc alloy scales featuring an aircraft-style drilled "skeleton" design. Weight is reduced without compromising the exceptional strength. The dual liners are 420J2 stainless steel. Handles are designed with an extended guard, generous size and bead-blast finish to give you extra gripping power. Friction grooves at the lock and on the blade spine improve grip in wet and icy conditions. 

The high-carbon, 420J2 stainless steel blades feature a rugged modified drop point shape and bead-blast finish. Blade grinds are engineered to retain maximum thickness at the tip and through the length of the spine. This blade is built for real work. Triple-Point™ Serrations are available on all sizes. 

Integrated into the design is the patented* LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts your folder into a virtual fixed blade when the lever is slid forward— very reassuring when you are using your knife for difficult and tiring tasks. 

Double-grooved ambidextrous thumb studs allow you to comfortably open or close the blade with a single, smooth, one-handed motion, aided by the lubrous washers at the blade pivot which guarantee continued smoothness. 

All fasteners are Torx, proven superior in initial assembly and owner maintenance, such as tightening the pivot screw for proper blade tension after years of heavy, sustained work loads. 

The convenient stainless steel clothing/gear clip is easily removable, attached with three Torx fasteners. 

In designing this series, we set out to reach the summit of tough, strong folding knives. It's all about excellence and achievement. If you're comparing all-alloy, multipurpose knives, we've set the standard. We trust you'll agree. *U.S. Patent No. 5,596,808.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Mt. Rainier in Afghanistan
Unlike other arid locales, the air contaminant is dust not sand. It's like a medium brown talc and gets EVERYWHERE. The Mt. Rainier is easy to clean with it open architecture, but my favorite feature is the locking mechanism. When the blade is open, it doesn't flex or click or rattle. It is absolutely solid and I hope future wear won't degrade this.

Good looking knife - nice additional lock
This knife is a good looking knife and has CRKT nice additional liner lock (to hold the liner lock in place as a safety.... creative and nice feature). I have owned this knife for years and it is a pretty good value for the money as most of CRKT seem to be. This knife opens fast and is good for everyday use, especially opening packages, cutting boxes, paper, etc. The blade is quite thin... kind of like a razor, but keeps a nice edge. The negative for me (when it comes to an EDC) was this knife felt heavy and bulky in your pocket. I didn't like carrying it because I always seemed to know it was there. This ended up being a knife I keep on my desk at home to open boxes, etc. This is a good knife to have around and will last, but not my first recommendation for an EDC.

Great every day knife
This is a great knife for every day carry and use. It's a great size....not too big, not too small. From cutting shrink wrap, cardboard and twine to opening mail, this blade does it all and stays sharp. The only thing I would like better is if there were more mounting options for the pocket clip like my Lightfoot M-1. The LAWKS safety loke is a perfect feature on a folding knife!
