CR7760: Pat Crawford 7760 Offbeat II
Bred for action, back for more. Pat Crawford has earned himself a handful of impressive awards over the years, but one unique knife has stood the test of time. Originally designed as a custom in 1979, Pat released the production Offbeat in 2017 and now, it’s back again. The Offbeat II is another stellar feather in this designer’s cap.
From his shop in West Memphis, Arkansas, Pat has turned out customs that have set a seriously high precedent. That’s not to mention they’re consistently some of the most popular at CRKT. Now, he’s back at it with the Offbeat II.
Before the CNC machine revolutionized the industry, Pat spent an inordinate amount of time cutting handles out of titanium and fitting folders together by hand. So, to expedite the process, he simplified his design. Inspired by a Boy Scout wire handle folder, he invented the Crawford Lockback—an innovation that has proven its worth and is the defining characteristic of the incredibly unique Offbeat and Offbeat II.
The handle is made with super durable glass-reinforced nylon scales that protect the hidden Crawford Lockback mechanism. As the classic drop point blade is deployed, the cutout slides around the butt end of the blade until it reaches a notch along the backside. Then, it seats snugly into place, effectively locking it. To disengage, push up on the thumb stud and fold it closed.
Conventional? Nope. Utilitarian? All the way.
