The CRKT Sting is a sudden, biting, and piercing self-defense tool that quietly waits in the wings until it's time for action.

The Sting is meticulously crafted from a single piece of forged 1050 carbon steel, which is treated for maximum durability and strength. The double-edged blade is 3.197 inches long and coated with a non-reflective powder finish to increase corrosion resistance and decrease visibility.

The nearly indestructible knife's hardiness makes it a reliable partner for all types of adventures, and you can carry it on your person or in a rucksack without fear of damage.

A.G. Russell, the designer of the Sting, is a legendary knifemaker with a long list of honors and credentials. Needless to say, the Sting reflects Russell's work ethics and eye for design.

This boot knife is versatile enough to act as a reliable throwing knife, self-defense tool, and hunting knife. Thanks to the highly adaptable nylon sheath, you can carry the knife everywhere you go.

Great little knife, It does come with a sheath that can strap to you ankle, The knife is 1 solid piece of steel handle and blade. Would love to have one that is a bit bigger though. A 5 or 6 inch blade would be nice

This is a good knife! It will serve its purpose which is for use by my wife in emergency situations. I like the double edge.

It's a good knife but too heavy for an old man like me to carry so I gave the knife to my son-in-law, who took it with him to Afghanistan for tactical duty there. He likes it!

This is a very strong and well made knife. It takes an edge very well and gives excellent service. I find it a bit heavy but its sturdiness makes up for it. I bought it and the Cold Steel Brave Heart and I prefer the Brave Heart due to the design which is lighter and more dagger like; however, the Brave Heart has a much thinner blade.

This is a great little knife and a good price! The only thing I wish this had was a boot clip instead of or along with the ankle straps. But all in all a good buy!

I'm typing this with a stick in my mouth because I sliced off all my fingers! The blade is very sharp and it's a great knife!
