Wes Crawford, the custom knife maker and a friend of Cold Steel for years, comes out on the creation of an inexpensive version of one of his pricey custom “flippers” which is the new Crawford Model 1.
Featuring a wide saber grind and a strong, sharp point blade with plenty of belly for cutting and slashing. Built with Japanese 4034 Stainless and is hollow ground to a thin, razor edge that will cut at the slightest touch. Due to Wes’s “flipper” is integrated into the tang, it can be opened lightning fast! The handle of the Crawford Model 1 mimics Wes’s original’s profile and silhouette but is made from a strong (yet economical), glass reinforced nylon that includes traction rubber inlays, and a low-profile pocket clip. To ensure your safety, the Crawford 1 is equipped with our leaf spring lock and a (patent pending) secondary safety mechanism that, when engaged is extremely resistant to shock and impact.
