CRKT has released the Amicus folding outdoor knife. Designed by Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark, it was tested in some of the toughest environments he could find—the fjords and forests in his own backyard. It’s now ready for whatever harsh, brutal conditions nature dishes out for you.
The word amicus means friend or comrade. And with a strong full-flat grind, this 3.4-inch drop point blade, available in plain edge or with Triple Point serrations, is there when you need it. This beefy folder cuts through everything—big jobs, fine tasks, and anything in between.
An ergonomically-designed handle provides a firm, secure grip in any position. The sturdy frame lock provides confidence while the blade is open and in use. Protruding back spacers and deep grooves make it easy to get a solid hold on the knife even when you’re wearing gloves which, on raging waters or in the rainy outdoors, is often.
Voxnaes set out to create the perfect “field-folder”— one that would feel equally at home on his sailing vessels as in the mountains and woods. While normally a fixed blade would be his ideal choice, the Amicus has now become his number one pick every time he leaves for the wild.
