CRKT F.T.W.S. - 2060

If you look at the web site of custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz, you'll see that he is a wide-ranging designer, offering not only exquisite custom folders, but also timepieces and writing instruments. But Allen is also a serious martial artist, hence his interest in designing a superior fixed blade.

This new knife/sheath system is the culmination of two years of work, and the finest tactical fixed blade CRKT has ever manufactured. Because it is designed For Those Who Serve, CRKT is calling it the Elishewitz F.T.W.S.

Allen has carefully considered every facet of the full-tang 6.30" blade. SK 5 carbon steel was chosen for its strength and hardness. The tip is a modified spear point with full width near the tip for penetrating strength. The top of the blade features a four-inch-long flat grind with a chisel ground edge for heavy hacking and chopping tasks. The blade is black powder coated to resist corrosion and minimize reflectivity.

Likewise, the handle is carefully thought out to provide best grip under all conditions. There is a semi-hilt, plus four finger choils and a parrot beak at the end for maximum security. The injection-molded glass filled nylon scales feature an aggressive pyramid texture. The blade tang is taper ground to allow the handle to swell at the palm and become narrower at the end. A lanyard hole is provided.

Tactical Sheath. CRKT's battle-proven custom black high-strength nylon fabric/glass filled nylon sheath has an injection-molded liner. Dual belt loops are Velcro adjustable. For maximum versatility, there are ample grommets with a length of 550 paracord included, an adjustable leg strap, plus a slotted sheath back that can mount on MOLLE gear. Two removable security handle straps with snaps give access and security, and qualify the system as jump and water operation accepted. A utility pocket with a Fastex buckle will carry a variety of folding knives, multipurpose tools or sharpeners.

The operator today has many fixed blades to choose from. Allen has combined their most successful elements in a fixed blade that is strong, well-balanced, secure to grip, and competitively priced. Best of all, it's a true Elishewitz.
