CR7471: Alan Folts 7471 Ritual Folding Knife

Columbia River (CRKT)

Jumping out of the history book and into your pocket. Like an old-world Persian fixed blade, the Ritual tactical folding knife has a long, drastic blade curve and a substantial handle. But what makes it fit for a modern carry is the powerful Assisted Opening innovation that snaps open at lightning-fast speeds. It’s perfect for doing battle in ancient Persia and for making quick work of a package on your doorstep.

When he sat down at his bench to dream up the Ritual, designer Alan Folts of Melbourne, Florida was imagining what a Persian fixed blade would look like if it had evolved over generations and most recently landed in your pocket. This contemporary tactical folder is built with a long, curved blade crafted of strong, edge-holding stainless steel. It folds neatly into the resin-infused fiber handle with a nostalgic stainless steel bolster. 

When Alan challenged himself to truly set the Ritual apart from knives of the past, he built it around Assisted Opening. Nudge the blade open part-way and Assisted Opening activates, snapping it open at super high speed. The IKBS ball bearing pivot system makes for a smooth rotation and a liner lock keeps it solidly in place.

The Ritual looks like an heirloom and acts like a high-tech tactical.

How Assisted Opening Works

It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part-way through the rotation the blade swings open at an impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.

Cons: Pocket Clip
Pretty much illegal everywhere
An amazing blade for the price. Came razor sharp. Flicks open with ease and closable with one hand. Wish the pocket clip matched the bolster, but otherwise it's perfect. Check your local laws before you carry, this will probably be a display peice. Video review on channel Stabby Things.

The Ritual is a very special knife!
I am a fan of CRKT flippers and have a growing collection.. I preordered the Alan Folts Ritual on New Year's day and I am very glad I did. Alan Folts hit this design out of the park. I'm also a fan of Kershaw Assisted Flippers and the assist on the Ritual is very smooth and is easy to close one handed. I hope to see more Assisted in the CRKT line in the future. This knife came out of the box Razor Sharp. Every knife I own needs honing to be what I call "razor sharp". The aesthetics of the Ritual are exquisite in my opinion.This beautiful knife is definitely going in my EDC rotation.I believe the Ritual will become one of CRKT's biggest sellers.
