CR2060: 2060 F.T.W.S. Elishewitz
If you look at the web site of custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz, you'll see that he is a wide-ranging designer, offering not only exquisite custom folders, but also timepieces and writing instruments. But Allen is also a serious martial artist, hence his interest in designing a superior fixed blade. 

This knife/sheath system is the culmination of two years of work, and the one of the finest tactical fixed blades CRKT has ever manufactured. Because it is designed For Those Who Serve, they are calling it the Elishewitz F.T.W.S.

Allen has carefully considered every facet of the full-tang 6.3" blade. SK5 carbon steel was chosen for its strength and hardness. The tip is a modified spear point with full width near the tip for penetrating strength. The top of the blade features a four-inch-long flat grind with a chisel ground edge for heavy hacking and chopping tasks. The blade is black powder coated to resist corrosion and minimize reflectivity. 

Likewise, the handle is carefully thought out to provide best grip under all conditions. There is a semi-hilt, plus four finger choils and a parrot beak at the end for maximum security. The injection-molded glass filled nylon scales feature an aggressive pyramid texture. The blade tang is taper ground to allow the handle to swell at the palm and become narrower at the end. A lanyard hole is provided. 

Tactical Sheath. The battle-proven custom black high-strength nylon fabric/glass filled nylon sheath has an injection-molded liner. Dual belt loops are Velcro adjustable. For maximum versatility, there are ample grommets with a length of 550 paracord included, an adjustable leg strap, plus a slotted sheath back that can mount on MOLLE gear. Two removable security handle straps with snaps give access and security, and qualify the system as jump and water operation accepted. A utility pocket with a Fastexbuckle will carry a variety of folding knives, multipurpose tools or sharpeners. 

The operator today has many fixed blades to choose from. Allen has combined their most successful elements in a fixed blade that is strong, well-balanced, secure to grip, and competitively priced. Best of all, it's a true Elishewitz.

Nice knife; but the sheath is too busy
I like the knife just fine. The sheath is ok; but it is a bit too busy for my taste. I realize it is designed for multiple purposes; and that's ok; but I like something simpler. I don't want to give the unit lass than 5 stars on that account; because the design may be just what someone else would like. Like I said, I like the knife just fine.

From to being part of my collection now
I had never even seen this knife before, much less knew it existed, before the Sep. 27th newsletter arrived. Once I saw it though, I had to have it, especially for the price ($60!). The knife itself is pretty awesome -- comes extremely sharp out of the box, feels very good in the hand with excellent ergonomics. It's a bit on the heavy side, but otherwise seems easy to wield. A bit heftier than its size would indicate just by looking at it. Penetrates very well, is nicely sized and has an interesting design, mainly regarding the secondary/top edge, which is apparently there for chopping/hacking as it sports a chisel ground edge. Regarding the sheath, I tried it out a couple of times as-is, using the nylon strap and buckle to secure it to my leg, but that feature, coupled with the length of paracord that came with it was total overkill, and the size I needed to make the strap left me with a lot of extra nylon just sort of flapping around without any way to secure it. So, I cut off the nylon strap and made the paracord actually fit what it would be used for, removing the excess. I like the sheath *much* better now. It holds the blade nicely, doesn't seem like it's way too much just for one 6" knife, and I like the extra pocket on the front. It seems good for stowing a smaller folding knife there, or a sharpening stone, a compass, etc. All in all this is one I am glad to have in my collection. Thanks for the great deal, KnifeCenter!
