Columbia River CRKT 2085 Darrin Sirois Xan Assisted Folding Knife 3.67" Clip Point Blade, G10/Carbon Fiber Laminate and Stainless Steel Handles
CR2085: 2085 Xan, Designed by Darrin William Sirois
Protect with purpose. Designed by a special ops veteran, the Xan - pronounced "z-ann", tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife is your pocket-sized security system. Designed in the wake of the powerful and popular RASP tactical folder, the Xan keeps all the tactical trappings while translating seamlessly to the garage.
Forged By War designer Darrin William Sirois dreamt up the Xan (which translates to "protector" in Greek) from his shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The thin design packs a high-carbon stainless steel clip point blade with a bead blast finish. The lightweight handle is built with black carbon fiber with a black G10 base on the front, and sleek stainless steel on the other. Engage the thumb stud, open it 30 degrees and OutBurst spring assist takes over. The blade springs to life and stays steadily in place with a frame lock. When closed, the internal mechanism holds the blade securely in place.
A tactical titan undercover as an EDC.
About the Forged By War program
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them on the battlefield.
CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and they saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, they launched the Forged By War program.
These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice.
