Columbia River Pocket Classic Series
Columbia River Knife and Tool usually comes up with the unusual. They decided to offer this series of classic pocketknives and we like them. They’re low priced and high quality.
Here is a word from their manufacturer:
You can stop asking. At last, we are offering a line of classic pocket knives in traditional configurations and blade shapes, made with premium materials.
People have asked us at Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) for years, “Where are your classic pocket knives?” And we were slightly embarrassed to explain that we didn’t make them. So this year we went to work to create a premium line of traditional pocket knives made with the best materials, fit, and finish possible.
We call them the CRKT Pocket Classics, and they’re available in seven of the most commonly requested styles. They feature high-carbon stainless steel blades with Razor-Sharp cutting edges, brass liners, polished nickel silver bolsters and pins, stainless steel springs, and special “burnt amber” jig bone covers.
The traditional patterns include:
Congress. This four-blader has a reverse curve Congress handle with squared ends and 2.125” (54 mm) sheepsfoot plus coping, small pen, and large pen blades.
Whittler. Our three-blader has a swell-center handle with fully rounded ends and 2.25” (57 mm) large clip point blade, plus small clip point, and pen blades.
Stockman. This three-blade model has a subtle “S” curved handle with fully rounded ends and a 2.625” (67 mm) long clip point blade, plus spey, and sheepsfoot blades.
Big Trapper. Our larger two-bladed Trapper has a gently swelling handle with Trapper style ends, a 3.25” (83 mm) classic “A” clip point blade plus a spey point blade.
Trapper. Our smaller two-bladed Trapper is similar in design to its big brother, with a 2.75” (70 mm) long clip point blade and a spey blade.
Texas Toothpick. The larger version of this single-blade classic design has a graceful down-curve at the butt, and a slender 2.75” (70 mm) California clip point blade, so-named because of its resemblance to a map of the State.
