CRKT brought in combat Veteran of the 101st Airborne and police officer Austin McGlaun to build another tactical defender from the Forged by War series, the Clever Girl. This is one mean Girl you wouldn't want to be at the other end of. Its main feature is its big sweeping Persian blade designed to use instinctively and quickly.
The Blade: This is a full tang of hardcore SK5 high carbon steel with a Black as night powder coat finish. Right around 4.5 inches of slicing, piercing power hollow ground to a razor's edge. 0.158 inches thick to take a beating.
The Handle: Grooved, contoured black G-10 handle scales are attached to the tang via three hollow tubes. The ergonomics are excellent with a palm-filling swell in the middle. Comfortable forward and reverse grips. A lanyard hole is cut out of the extended tang.
For an overall length of over 10 inches, the Clever Girl is well-balanced and lightweight. The grooved textures all around the handle look and feel custom. Includes a black glass-reinforced Nylon sheath with MOLLE compatible gear clip.About SK5 Steel: There are many forms of steel that knives and tools are made with.
