CR2515: Bear Claw
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 2515 features a blade that is full Triple-Point Serrated with a pointed tip. Blades are full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a fine bead-blast finish. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, choil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety. The contoured Zytel handle fills the hand neatly. The Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.2 oz. (The tear-drop-tip model is a bit heavier.)

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
Excellent Product!
I hike about 10km every day, simply for the sake of fitness. On these hikes, I carry this in its "neck-knife" configuration, and it is absolutely excellent. Testing the blade, it is almost a challenge to find something that it won't cut through (within reason - it is not a very big blade), and the grip is so ergonomically designed that cutting actions are instinctive and very easily controlled. Another excellent "everyman's" product from CRKT. KnifeCenter, thank you for the very speedy delivery, and as always, the brilliant customer-service.

Everything as expected
perfect size for a neck knife--full serrated allows many effective uses. only difficulty was packaging--open at several points around tape-nothing lost but potential for same.

Pros: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
Cons: None
Substantial weapon
This is a well designed knife; sharp serrations/blade, fairly good steel (extends completely through the entire handle), comfortable scales. The sheath is very sucure and made with a heavy gauge Kydex. Retention of the knife is such that I have no hesitation in carrying either on the neck or point-up on a belt. Because of its construction, the knife seems heavy in the hand, yet I don't event feel it as it hangs around my neck all day. This is only the 2nd CRKT product that I own; like my previous purchase, I am very pleased and impressed. Recommended.
