CR2510ER: Bear Claw E.R.
Columbia River

Russ Kommer is a bright young custom knifemaker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years. Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, and since he made the first Bear Claw, he hasn't been able to meet the demand. His original concept was a self-defense knife for women that would be lightweight, easy to access and control. But it seems that every parachutist, bush pilot and commercial fisherman who sees one, wants one.

As a result, Russ and CRKT teamed up to make the production Bear Claw, a cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts just like an extension of your hand. It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, especially if their life is going to depend on it.

The Bear Claw 2510ER is a professional model which has a blunt tip and serrated edge, making it perfect for seat belt removal during emergency rescues and extrication from lines or nets in the water. The blade is full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a polished finish to resist corrosion. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, choil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety. The contoured high visibility orange Zytel handle fills the hand neatly. The Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.4 oz.

We developed one of our CRKT trademark high-tech sheaths for the Bear Claw that's only 1.1 oz. of tough, durable, injection-molded Zytel. It allows efficient quick release of the knife—just thumb push against the sheath to release smoothly and quietly—or give a sharp pull.

It features molded-in threaded fittings for attachment of the wide black stainless steel Teflon-plated pocket clip at either end, using the Torx tool and screws provided. The sheath also has a total of seven lanyard holes and belting slots to permit a variety of carry positions, and a lanyard is provided.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Great knife
I have tested the knife and find that it is very functional and has a super sharp edge . The blunt tip is a super feature because in a survival situiation there is a much lessened chance of injury or puncturing equipment or even a person. It is well made and I feel safer knowing that I can count on it if needed in a rescue situation.It is easy to remove from the sheath and yet secured enough that it will not fall out on it"s own. The open finger grip ensures that it cannot be dropped easily.

I like it
I plan on using this knife while canyoneering for emergency rope or web cutting, that is why I like the blunt tip. I do wish the hole was a little bigger I find it hard to get my finger in there with a glove on. Overall it is s good size nice and compact yet fits nicely in my hand.

A Life-Saving Bargain
I bought this to use as a rescue knife while kayaking.It easily mounts out of the way, but is still accessible in time of need. The sheath is VERY secure allowing the knife to be carried in the handle down position. That makes it easy to draw when and if needed. The handle size and design is such that it feels very secure in the hand. Even if you did somehow drop the knife, the orange handle makes it easy to find.
