CR6850: Ignitor™ Sport - Polished Blade and Frame, Green & Black Scales, Razor-Sharp Cutting Edge
Columbia River

CRKT describes this item as follows:

This series is ready to start a big bang, with OutBurst™ opening, Fire Safe™ actuation, layered G10 scales, and optional Veff™ Serrations.

We hope to ignite your passion for high-tech folders with this new knife series. That’s why we call it the Ignitor™. It raises the bar for all value-priced folders, by using premium blade steel, layered G10 scales, and patented features including assisted opening, a unique knife safety and our special serrations. We challenge you to find a knife of this quality for the money. Consider these features:

First the blade. It’s a modifed drop point design with a high hollow grind. We use premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel. You have your choice of a Razor-Sharp edge or combination Razor-Sharp edge with our patented(1) Veff™ Serrations, which are superior for fast cutting of cord, netting and vegetation.

The frame uses our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and layered G10 scales, textured and CNC machined to aid grip. The deep finger choil and pommel fit the hand nicely. The flat cross-section makes for comfortable in-pocket carry.

The true breakthrough is our ability to combine our patented(2) OutBurst™ assisted opening with the patent-pending(3) Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in a sport and work folder.

All models include a removable stainess steel clip.

Ignitor™ Sport. The standard Ignitor models have a polished blade and frame, with green and black G10 scales. It’s a contemporary and sophisticated look that exudes custom-knife quality.

So that’s the Ignitor story. Did you feel a spark? If not, get down to your favorite retailer and put one in your hand.

Cons: None
What a great knife
Let me start by saying that I carry a knife every where I go. This is the first CRKT knife I have ever owned and the only CRKT knife I have ever owned. I bought it first of all because of the size. The size is perfect, not to big, but not to slow. Perfect for EDC. the blade is sharp out of the box and stays that way for a good while, even being used heavily for every day tasks (opening boxes, cutting rope, etc...). When it came time to sharpen the blade i did it myself with a simple diamond sharpener from Lowes. I am no expert knife sharpener but this blade made it easy! The assisted open took a while to get use to, but now that I am use to it, I really don't think I can do without it! the handle material feels great in the hand and still delivers grip in wet situations. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this blade, especially for the price.

Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Anything but fast
I just could not get to open (it requires far too much pressure). I had to take it apart and remove this silly locking pin. It works just fine now. In every other respect it's a winner.
