Description
CR2510: Bear Claw
Columbia River

Russ Kommer is a bright young custom knifemaker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years. Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, and since he made the first Bear Claw, he hasn't been able to meet the demand. His original concept was a self-defense knife for women that would be lightweight, easy to access and control. But it seems that every parachutist, bush pilot and commercial fisherman who sees one, wants one.

As a result, Russ and CRKT teamed up to make the production Bear Claw, a cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts just like an extension of your hand. It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, especially if their life is going to depend on it.

The Bear Claw 2510features a Triple-Point Serrated blade with tear drop tip for fast cutting without danger of point penetration—ideal for law enforcement and emergency rescue personnel. Blades are full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a fine bead-blast finish. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, choil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety. The contoured Zytel handle fills the hand neatly. The Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.4 oz.

We developed one of our CRKT trademark high-tech sheaths for the Bear Claw that's only 1.1 oz. of tough, durable, injection-molded Zytel. It allows efficient quick release of the knife—just thumb push against the sheath to release smoothly and quietly—or give a sharp pull.

It features molded-in threaded fittings for attachment of the wide black stainless steel Teflon-plated pocket clip at either end, using the Torx tool and screws provided. The sheath also has a total of seven lanyard holes and belting slots to permit a variety of carry positions, and a lanyard is provided.

Solid stuff in a little package!
Just got the Bear Claw in the mail yesterday. Great knife; sharp as a razor right out if the box. Fits perfectly in my hand. Sheath holds firmly to the knife even when hanging off of my neck. Going to be a great addition to my Bug out Bag. Thanks Knife Center for the great service. A number one!
