Columbia River Knife and Tool: CRKT Onion Skinner, CR-K700KXP


The illustrated CRKT knife is the CRKT Onion Skinner, designed by Hawaiian knifemaker Ken Onion, that features a 3.75" modified drop point fixed blade made of Bohler K110 stainless steel, .142" thick, with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60. The blade of this CRKT knife has a satin polished finish and a high hollow grind. The Onion Skinner has three quarter tang construction; Twin-Fused injection molded handle with a Zytel core, a soft textured black TPR surface for secure grip and a lanyard. A custom friction fit leather sheath with ambidextrous carry option is included with this CRKT Knife. The CRKT Onion Skinner has an overall length of 8.00", and it weighs 5.8 ounces with the sheath.

From the CRKT website regarding the features of the Onion Skinner:

First, the knife has a thin tip, with a slightly convex grind near the tip that minimizes drag. No caping knife is needed for detail work.

Second, the top of the blade has a pronounced "camel hump". This allows the hunter to insert the tip under the skin and rock the hand back, which raises the tip up and away from the paunch.

Third, the tip has a straight section at an offset angle. This makes the knife a useful utility and cooking tool around camp.

Fourth, is the short 3.75" blade length. This is just the length of the average finger, which has proven perfect for the pencil grip favored by many hunters.

Finally, the Onion Skinner features a handle which has a deep finger choil, which greatly improves grip in slippery conditions. The thin cross section allows for less obtrusive carry while still locking in the fitted sheath.
