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.
We 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.
