CR6914: Partially Serrated Cutting Edg CASCADE LOCKBACK
Columbia River's goal: to translate Jim Hammond’s custom design into the most comfortable, useful and affordable lockback possible. Jim Hammond’s Cruiser series of customs seemed like an ideal starting point in our development of a high quality affordable lockback work folder. As the first custom knifemaker and Knifemakers’ Guild member to work with CRKT, he understood the translation necessary to arrive at our new production Cascade Lockback. The blade is a Hammond modified clip point shape, hollow ground from AUS 6M stainless steel with a bead blast finish, and available with a Razor-Sharp or Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge. For maximum comfort, we used our Twin-Fused™ handle technology using a rigid, injection molded high-impact polycabonate frame with a soft, comfortable diamond patterned injection molded Kraton® grip for a firm, safe hold. This build, combined with the rounded handle cross section, deep finger choil with guard, pronounced butt pommel and blade thumb ramp with friction grooves, results in one of the most secure and comfortable grips in any folder, at any price. This is a truly ambidextrous knife. Dual thumb studs allow fast either-hand opening.
We designed the lockback mechanism with a mid-lock on the spine, at a point difficult to accidentally release. To make closing safer, and to allow one-handed closing, we added a “hitch” at the 90 degree point. When the lock bar is released with the blade up, the blade swings down 90 degrees and stops, reducing accidental cuts. You can then shift the Cascade to your palm and press the blade closed. A custom, removable stainless steel pocket/gear clip allows secure carry in pocket, on webbing, and on tool aprons. And for those who prefer a traditional belt carry, a molded closed cell foam cordura fabric bidirectional carry scabbard is included. We think the Cascade is ideal for anyone who has daily, lengthy carving or cutting tasks. In our testing, we cannot find the annoying little pressure points that often cause blisters with repetitive use. So if your present work knife is less than a perfect fit, you can really afford to give the Cascade a test grip
