CRKT Dogfish - 2370

Tom Krein is a young custom knifemaker who has created quite a stir with his Mid Tech Dogfish neck knife. It seemed like the perfect affordable CRKT production knife, so here it is. Tom has a great sense of style, so unlike many skeletonized flat blades, the Dogfish is graceful, gives a secure grip, and also has that dogfish face at the pommel which turns out to be a lanyard hole and bottle opener! It has a secure finger choil and friction grooves at the thumb spine and near the butt.

CRKT E.D.M. wire cut it from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, bevel grind the 2.25" modified Wharncliffe blade, give it a fine bead-blast finish and add a Razor-Sharp or Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge.

You also get a custom-fitted six-eyelet Kydex sheath that grips the knife securely for inverted carry with the neck chain included, or with the CRKT MercHarness. It's a useful, friendly minimal knife that's a great value.

Designer:  Tom Krein


Tom Krein Tom Krein is a full-time knifemaker with a shop in Gentry, Arkansas. He says, "By the time I was a teenager I knew I wanted to make my own knives. I read every book and magazine I could find on knives and knifemaking, but it wasn't until 1994 that I successfully completed my first knife. Twelve knives later I knew this was an occupation I wanted to pursue. My first taste of real knifemaking started with sweeping the floor in Bob Dozier's shop. The three years I spent with Bob was like getting a degree in knifemaking. This proved a valuable experience when I later worked for A.G. Russell in their custom shop. In my personal experience, both making and using knives, I have adopted the idea that form must follow function in a knife. My knives are characterized by simple clean lines, ergonomic handles and thinly ground blades. In my experience as a Registered Nurse and ER trauma nurse for 13 years I have learned a lot about anatomy, ergonomics and how the body works. This has had an influence on how I shape my handles and design my knives."
