Columbia River Knife and Tool: CRKT Provoke Compact Karambit Knife, CR-4045


The 4045 CRKT Provoke Compact Knife, designed by innovator Joe Caswell of Newbury Park, California, is a new addition to the popular Provoke lineup that features a 2.26 inch hawkbill blade made of D2 tool steel, .15 inches thick, with a non reflective stonewash finish and Kinematic® Actuation. The dark gray anodized 6061 aluminum handle, 4.54 inches closed, has a lever lock, a ring pommel and a recess mounted pocket clip (activated by thumb pressure). The Provoke Compact has an overall open length of 6.63 inches, and it weighs 4.40 ounces. Made in Taiwan.

From the CRKT site: Power in your pocket. The Provoke™ Compact is a classic reimagined, redesigned to be an ultra portable everyday carry. Wielding power in compact size, its sturdy aluminum handle adds to its superbly lightweight design, doubling in purpose as the perfect self-defense carry. Featuring Kinematic® technology, it stays neatly tucked away in transit, and comes to life when there's trouble afoot.

Around here, we think of Designer Joe Caswell as somewhat of a mad scientist. When we got an eyeful of the sketches that were to become the Provoke™ - designed in Newbury Park, California - we knew he was destined to become one of the most innovative designers the knife world has ever seen. Modeled after a traditional karambit, the hawkbill-style blade is forged of a premium D2 steel for high durability and excellent edge retention.

The opening mechanism is pulling the folder into the future whether it's ready or not. Thumb pressure on the upper crossbar sets the chain reaction in motion, causing the blade to lunge to action while you've got a firm grasp on the handle. It's crafted of aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum for supreme toughness. In true Joe fashion, the pocket clip is also a world's first - sitting almost completely flush with the handle and likewise activated with light thumb pressure.

The Provoke™ Compact comes up strong when it's called in for duty.

How Kinematic® Works
Nudge the upper crossbar with your thumb - while the rest of your fingers firmly grasp the handle - and the blade lunges to life and locks into place. Shift the discrete lever at the base of the finger loop and the blade retreats into its closed position.

Truly a unique knife. I appreciate the design, mechanics, ergos. Would recommend to people who are knife lovers and collect.

Also, knifesplus are legit. I found them recently, and I’m glad I did. Highly recommended as well. They are actually my go-to now for knife purchases.
