Columbia River 2075 Matthew Lerch Shrill Fixed 4.769" Double Edge Blade, Black Micarta Handles, Leather Sheath
CR2075: Shrill Boot Knife, Designed by Matthew Lerch
Serves and protects while you're doing the same. The Shrill tactical boot knife knows its place on a mission: keeping you and others safe. It's no wonder this fixed blade has the name it does. With a 4.769" double edged design it seems to pierce anything in sight.
Matthew Lerch of Sussex, Wisconsin, has been balancing art with mechanics for over 31 years and he's raising the bar once again with the Shrill. It's a backup knife in the field or a go-to knife in the outdoors, on-duty, and everywhere in-between.
You're asked to work in all conditions. You should expect the same from your knife. That's why the Shrill features a versatile double-edged design with a lightweight 4.769" blade. If it weren't clipped to your boot, you might not even know it's there. But it makes its presence known when there's work to be done.
We made the Micarta handle tough for all conditions, yet stylish as well with a distinctive two-tone design. After all, just because you're battling a 4-alarm or a bad guy in the field doesn't mean you can't look good while doing it.
Just unleash the Shrill from its leather sheath attached to your boot or belt. The task at hand doesn't stand a chance.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
