Description
CR2010N: Crawford/Kasper Dragon
Columbia River

Bob Kasper, the late writer and combat instructor, designed the basic outline of the C/K Dragon after ten years of study into the principles of extreme in-close fighting developed by Dr. Gordon Eric Perrigard over fifty years ago. These techniques use automatic conditioned reflexes with minimal body movement. The knife is considered as part of the hand.

Bob sent his sketch to award-winning custom knifemakers Pat and Wes Crawford of Crawford Knives in West Memphis, Arkansas, who developed the handle scales. As Pat Crawford says, "This knife is all business. I hope it will become a part of Bob's legacy to the professional martial arts community."

Like its namesake, the C/K Dragon bites (with the tapered tip), claws (with the long Wharncliffe cutting edge), and strikes (with the pommel) its adversary. We at CRKT have engineered our production model to be as close as possible to the Crawford custom Dragon, which has proven popular with law enforcement and military operators.

The 4.50" full tang blade has a tapered Wharncliffe grind for great penetrating power. It is made of exceptionally tough 9Cr18MoV high-chromium stainless steel to stand up to the worst abuse.

The handle features a deep finger choil and textured zytel scales with deep diagonal grooves for optimum grip with gloved hands and under wet conditions, aided by deep friction grooves at the thumb. At the pommel, a pointed metal hammer tip is useful for window breaking and other tactical impact needs.

True to Bob Kasper's concept, this is a knife with perfect balance that truly feels like part of your hand. Mass is centered at the palm, and the tapered blade tip makes the Dragon feel like a much smaller knife.

Despite its tactical intentions, we have found that thanks to its weight, balance, grip and long precision cutting edge, the Dragon makes a very functional and versatile knife in the shop, too. Enter the C/K Dragon.

Lethal and concealable!
This knife is everything I expected it to be. The handle's design allows it to lock into my hand creating confidence in it's intended purpose if needed. A highly consealable last line of defense in multiple carry positions with a no nonsense blade! What more could you ask for at this price?

Outstanding
Great knife; my most carried fixed blade EDC. 8Cr13MoV is about the equivalent of AUS-8 and 440C in terms of performance, so the 9Cr18MoV is nice. I have a couple hundred knives, from most manufacturers and using a wide array of steels. I have $10 knives and $200 knives; when I find an example I really like and intend to use often, I'll buy 2... I bought 3 of these. I like the sheaths too; but when I bought mine they had not introduced the quick-release mounts for them yet, just the square, adjustable pieces to mount on the back for a belt to go through. No problem, called CRKT customer service and inquired about the availability of the new quick-release mounts and how much they cost; they said they were sending me some for my knives free of charge and no shipping fees either. THAT'S customer service. The handle scales are fine the way they are; but I wrapped my EDC with the soft, tennis racquet grip tape anyway, and it's much more comfortable if you intend to use the knife for extended periods. Fit and finish was flawless; evenly ground; and extremely sharp right out of the box. I literally can't say anything negative about them, especially at that price.
