CKFKROKARTI: Alexey "Ratatuy" Konygin Krokar, Titanium
Custom Knife Factory
Custom Knife Factory might sound like an ambiguous name but it's definitely one worth remembering. Their knives are mid-tech by definition but the quality definitely borders on full custom. They have a CNC machine shop in China that does some of the leg work but all the hand fit and finishing is done in-house in their Moscow shop. They use top-of-the-line materials made in the USA and designs from some of the most talented knife designers in Russia.
The Krokar is one of the most attractive, unusual knives on the market and we don't even know where to begin. This knife is an absolute statement of a knife and it's the first time you can get one that wasn't handmade by Alexey Konygin himself. Its menacing size and looks are complemented by superb ergonomics in both the forward and reverse grips and hidden premium materials that you wouldn't even know about if we didn't tell you.
The impressive Krokar features a whopping 4.84" hawkbill blade with a hand rubbed satin finish and dual ambidextrous thumb studs. The opening action is quite stiff though, as to be expected on a lockback design, and location of the thumb studs leads us to believe that this knife was designed to be opened with two hands. The handle is a wonder of ergonomics with grooves that promote a solid, non-slip grip and it's just as comfortable when reversed. The blade is unlocked by depressing on the back end near the butt of the knife and the locking mechanism is actually made from zirconium; an excellent hidden touch, as is the zirconium pocket clip. You will definitely make a statement when you pull the Krokar out of your pocket; available in bronze anodized titanium or carbon fiber. Proudly made in Russia.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
Powdered metal developed for knife blades which provides good corrosion resistance and very high hardness for excellent wear resistance during hard use cutting.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
