Limited Edition CRKT Blade Arrives For National Knife Day


This New Release From CRKT Is Timed In Conjunction With National Knife Day. The Newest Entrant In the Squid Line Has New Features And High-Quality Steel

It’s National Knife Day, and CRKT has released a limited-edition knife to celebrate the day. The all new Squid II OD Green, which was made in Italy, debuts today and combines everything knife fans love about CRKT with the craftsmanship of a custom knife. Only 500 units of this model are being sold. 

The blade is made from stonewashed Böhler M390 steel which merges excellent edge retention and wear resistance. Ground to a plain edge, the blade is 2.68 inches in length and has a 58-61 HRC.

In a first for the Squid line, the knife features a liner lock to secure the blade in place, and the IKBS ball bearing pivot system allows for fast, smooth deployment. The handle is made from green Micarta for a rugged look, and a lanyard hole allows you to take the knife anywhere you are.

“The Squid™ II is far and away one of the finest knives we’ve ever produced,” said Doug Flagg, VP of Marketing & Innovation for CRKT. “This knife combines decades of design experience with the aspirations of what we’re trying to achieve as a brand and we’re confident it’s a knife that will stand the test of time.”

The knife goes on sale today and has an MSRP of $185
