The CRKT Oxcart Is A Strong Folder That Can Be Your EDC and Do A Whole Lot More Too.
Designed by a Texan, Robert Carter, the new CRKT Oxcart is Lone Star tough. The assisted-opening folder is designed to be ambidextrous with a reversible pocket clip and can handle pretty much anything you throw at it.
The frame lock uses a thick lock bar to secure the blade in place once flipped open so you won’t have to worry about it coming back at you and nicking your fingers.
This is in no small part to the construction. The 3.05-inch blade is crafted from Japanese AUS-8 high-carbon stainless steel which is not only a strong metal, but it’s also exceptional at resisting rust too. The satin finish gives the OXcart a clean look too. The blade isn’t the only steel on this piece either. The handle is also made from stainless.
The strength of the Oxcart is remarkable considering that it weighs just under five ounces. When closed, the knife is just over four inches in length so it can easily tuck away on your belt line or into your pack.
