About

History

Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®), a Tualatin, Oregon-based manufacturer of knives, tools, and accessories founded in 1994, has announced its new product line-up for 2010. 

Company president and co-founder Rod Bremer notes, "Regardless of economic conditions, we have continued to work with some of the world's leading designers, and we are once again introducing a long list of new products that offer new mechanisms, innovative product shapes and colors as well as premium materials." 

Sport & Work Knives. CRKT continues to "think outside the box" by seeking out new and unique designs and mechanisms, just when everyone in the industry thinks they have seen it all. For example, the company is introducing the tiny McGinnis Shrimp™, the Gekkota™ Pocket and Golf, the ExiTool™, Ta-Bar Tool™, Norfork™ Diver and Whitewater, and Klecker NIRK™– all exciting and unusual. At the same time, it continues to broaden it's traditional knife models, including for the first time, Classic pocket knives, as well as the Centofante Tribute™, Carson M4™-02 series, and the Delegate™ and Vertex™ lines. 

I.D. Works™ Tools. This exciting line continues to be dedicated to multifunctional tools that are uniquely creative. The motto is simply "Inspired Design works.®" This year we're adding the award-winning Flux™ modular tool system and the inspired Eat'N Tool™. 

Professional Knives & Tools. The CRKT "For Those Who Serve®" line of professional knives has proven very popular with operators in the field. This year CRKT has added a smaller Hissatsu™ 2 Folder, the fully-featured Fire Spark™ tactical folder, and the Elishewitz Tao™ tactical pen line. 

More natural and premium materials. CRKT is continuing to specify the natural and premium materials that are common in the best custom knives, including more knives with layered Micarta®, G10, stag, jig bone, white bone, ram horn, and hardwoods such as thuya root, cocobolo, ebony, walnut, and burl. 

Collaborations with leading designers. CRKT is probably best known for its K.I.S.S.® series, the original two-piece money clip knives designed by Ed Halligan, and its M16® series, designed by Kit Carson. "These knives were pivotal to our success," says Bremer. "We recognized them as successful custom designs which deserved to be put into production to reach a wider audience. We continue to seek collaborations with leading custom knifemakers and bright young industrial designers, because it is good for us, good for them, and good for our customers." 

Growing distribution. You will find CRKT knives at fine cutlery, select sporting goods, specialty stores, and U.S. Army, Air Force, and Marine exchange stores worldwide. The company was founded on the belief that knowledgeable sales people are still valuable in helping you select the right knife for the job, advising you on care and maintenance, and supporting the product after you buy it. Their products are also available from reputable web site purveyors. 

Quality. All CRKT knives and tools are built incorporating the most advanced equipment and production systems available, and quality is controlled from beginning to end. Knives are built the way they should be built-without compromising quality in any part of their creation. CRKT accessories are crafted to the same standards as the knives, so that each sheath, for example, lives up to the customers' high expectations.

Warranty Information

 

 

THE CRKT LIMITED LIFETIME KNIFE WARRANTY

 


This warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship. If one of our knives ever breaks or fails because of material or manufacturing defect, we’ll replace the knife.

This warranty runs as long as you own your knife. Coverage ends if you sell or otherwise transfer the knife to someone else, or if your CRKT knife is modified in any way.

This warranty does not cover breakage or failure due to misuse of the knife. Knives as good as ours rarely break or fail because of a defect. Usually they break or fail from what we call “tool abuse”—using them for unsuitable tasks like prying or pounding. Therefore, blade tip breakage is not covered by our warranty. Use of a knife for any purpose other than cutting voids the warranty. (The exceptions to this caution are the A.B.C. Aqua and MAK-1 Multiple Access Knife which have tips designed specifically for prying.) So please match the tool to the task, and use your knife only for cutting. The knife will last longer, and you’ll be safer too. This warranty does not cover failure of mechanisms due to your failure to properly maintain them.

Also, consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so this exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.

Misuse of your knife can cause serious injury or even death. It can also cause your knife to break or fail and the CRKT limited lifetime warranty will not apply. Failure to properly maintain your knife also may cause its mechanisms to not function properly, which could result in injury to you or damage to the knife. Follow the do’s and don’ts which are included in your CRKT knife package and the knife will last longer and you’ll be safer too.

THE CRKT ACCESSORY WARRANTY.

CRKT accessories, including deployment systems, carry systems, and sharpeners, have a one-year limited warranty against defects in material or manufacturing.

THE CRKT LED LIGHT WARRANTY.

On those CRKT products which contain an LED flashlight, the light mechanism has a 90-day limited warranty to the original purchaser against defects in material or manufacturing. Proof of purchase may be required for warranty claims.

THE CRKT LED LIGHT WARRANTY.

On those CRKT products which contain an LED flashlight, the light mechanism has a 90-day limited warranty to the original purchaser against defects in material or manufacturing. Proof of purchase may be required forHOW TO SEND YOUR CRKT PRODUCT TO US.

If you have a problem with a CRKT knife or accessory which is the result of a defect in materials or workmanship per the warranty statements above, here is how to return it to us.
