Update: We originally wrote this post way back in January, but CRKT recently unveiled a few more 2015 mid-year years at the BLADE Show in Atlanta. You can find the new ones at the bottom.
It’s January and you know what that means… it’s time to take a look at the new knives coming your way. The SHOT Show (where companies are showcasing new knives) is currently underway, but many companies have already released the new catalogs.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at the new knives across various brands. We’re kicking things off with the 22 new knives from CRKT.
BT-70 (Designed by Bob Terzuola)
If you’re not familiar with Bob Terzuola, the new BT-70 is the perfect way to get acquainted. Terzuola is one of the fathers of tactical knives and this collector’s piece showcases his feel for the tactical folder. It has a stonewash finish, G-10 handle scales with his dragon logo, and a blade length of 4.03 inches.
The Argus is a spring-assisted knife with the Outburst assisted opening mechanism. Designed by Matthew Lerch, the Argus Black has an aluminum handle and a 3.55-inch blade with black corrosion resistant coating.
No Time Off
Designed by Flavio Ikoma, the No Time Off is a burly folder that’s aimed at heavy-duty tasks. It has a waffle iron traction grip handle and a 2.99-inch blade that locks into place using the Ikoma Locking System.
The Saker is an interesting bushcraft knife by Abe Elias, with its scandi grind and 1075 carbon steel blade that’s about 4.5 inches. The handle is made from Walnut.
G.S.D. (Get S**t Done)
With a name like G.S.D. (which stands for Get S**t Done), you’d better expect a knife that’s tough, reliable, and functional. Check, check, and check. It has a classic industrial look and can handle heavy-duty tasks.
We’re starting to get to the puns. The Hunt’N Fisch plays off designer Larry Fischer’s name and is a fixed blade hunting knife with tons of jimping and some interesting grooves on the spine.
It’s designed to be an all-around hunting and fishing knife with a blade of 2.99 inches made of 8Cr13MoV steel. It has G-10 scales on the handle.
