The Elishewitz CRKT Pharaoh™ is a unique folding knife design that incorporates many of Allen Elishewitz’s striking and influential knife themes. First there is the unique blade grind, reminiscent of the traditional “long clip blade” of a century ago.
The tip is designed for penetration, with a swedged top edge. But the center of the blade is re-curved, with a high hollow grind, making it ideal for feeding material to the cutting edge— wood, cord, vegetation. The black-on-black features a titanium nitride blade coating that is non-reflective along with the plus black liners, bolsters, fasteners and clip for a tactical look. The frame is about the strongest around with dual stainless steel liners, black stainless steel bolsters, textured injection-molded Zytel® scales, and a solid Zytel back spacer at the spine. The Pharaoh has a button lock.
In addition, CRKT added their patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which engages when the blade is opened and locked. This combination makes just about the strongest and most secure lockup possible in a folding pocket knife.
