PROVOKE Compact knife - CRKT
The CRKT Provoke Compact is a revolutionary karambit pocket knife designed by Joe Caswell. With the Provoke, he changes our view of things on pocket knives. The Kinematic mechanism allows you to open this karambit in the blink of an eye.
This is the Provoke Compact: a little smaller than the classic Provoke. The materials used and the design remain the same.
Place your index finger in the karambit ring then use your thumb to open the blade. This is then held in place by a solid locking mechanism. With your hand still placed around the handle, the blade won't fold no matter what. Unlock the blade thanks to the almost hidden lever in the construction. A difficult movement to perform but which, once the technique has been mastered, makes it possible to open and close the karambit quickly and easily.
Apart from this unique mechanism, the Provoke is a very good pocket knife. The blade is made of D2 steel and is only sharpened on one side. A perfect hollow grind for a very effective cutting action. The handle is made of very strong 6061 T6 aluminium. A very robust material also used for space travel.
The CRKT Provoke is very discreet in the pocket of your pants. The pocket clip is special because it requires you to press on it to be accessible. What always have a knife discreetly hidden in the pocket.
