Columbia River CRKT 6860 Ignitor T Assisted Folding Knife 3.38" Gray Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles
CR6860: 6860 Ignitor T
This series is ready to start a big bang, with OutBurst opening, Fire Safe actuation, layered G10 scales, and optional Veff Serrations.
CRKT hopes to ignite your passion for high-tech folders with this knife series. That's why they 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 their special serrations. CRKT challenges you to find a knife of this quality for the money. Consider these features:
First the blade. It's a modified drop point design with a high hollow grind. CRKT uses premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel. You have your choice of a Razor-Sharp edge or combination Razor-Sharp edge with their patented (1) Veff Serrations, which are superior for fast cutting of cord, netting and vegetation.
The frame uses their 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 their ability to combine their 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 stainless steel clip.
Ignitor T. This Ignitor is offered in a tactical color scheme. The blade receives a non-reflective dark gray titanium nitride coating, which provides maximum corrosion protection. The "T" models feature black G10 scales.
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.
