While the CRKT Raikiri may not be able to slice a lightning bolt in two like the Japanese sword of legend, this modern namesake has the powerful cutting performance that Wharncliffe blades are known. Pair that with interesting lines and Field Strip Technology and you’ve got an excellent blend of modern aesthetics and construction with a classic design sensibility.
Brand new product directly from Columbia River Knife & Tool.
The Blade: The modified Wharncliffe blade features a satin finish and a low-profile flipper for powerful cutting performance and smooth, fast deployment when seconds count.
The Handle: Cold forged aluminum scales have a modern texture and sleek, ergonomic design. An inset liner lock mechanism keeps the blade secure during use while a black backspacer completes construction. Over-sized black finished pivot with field strip lever allows the user to disassemble the knife. Slide the lever to the right, then spin the “gear” spacer at the end of the handle to complete disassembly. Reverse the process to re-assemble.
