The CRKT Raikiri is a cool EDC pocket knife, designed by Dew Hara. This Japanese designer pulled out all the stops for this cool design. The name Raikiri comes from a legendary Japanese sword with the same name. According to legend this sword was able to cut through lightning. The futuristic design of the CRKT Raikiri at least looks like lightning has got something to worry about...
Not only aesthetically speaking the CRKT Raikiri is exceptional. It is namely also enhanced with a special mechanism to make sure you can easily take it apart. This, by Ken Onion, patented Field Strip Technology is so simple it is hard to imagine that it didn't exist yet. Turn a latch, loosen the wheel: open. You clean it and repeat the process, but then reversed. Within thirty seconds it will be fully assembled again. Perfect when you work in surroundings where dirt is a problem. Think of soldiers, mechanics and hunters.
The handle of the CRKT Raikiri is also remarkable. It is namely made from cast aluminium. Light-weight and stunning due to the cut-out shapes. The blade is made from 4116 German steel. A stainless type of steel that is easy to sharpen.
