The CRKT Compano Sheepsfoot Is The Next Evolution Of The Compano Line And Follows In The Original’s Footsteps While Also Standing On Its Own.
Designed by Mike Bond, the Compano Sheepsfoot builds off of the original CRKT Compano with a new style of blade and flashier design. The original knife featured a slipjoint with a carabiner to connect to your keychain or belt loop, and that’s carried over to the newer model. The Sheepsfoot blade on the newer version is excellent for precise cutting when needed.
Yes, it’s small at only 1.44 inches in length, but when you’re looking for a good keychain knife the name of the game is ease of use and being good in tight spaces. The Compano Sheepsfoot checks both of those boxes.
The blade is made from satin-finished high-carbon stainless steel, and the handle & carabiner clip is also made from stainless. The stonewashed black finished with blue titanium nitride accents make this model visually pop when you first see it.
The slipjoint ring doubles as a great place to rest your index finger to get leverage when manipulating the blade or opening & closing it. Overall, this is a fun piece that will look great on your keychain or belt loop.
