Russ Kommer is a custom knifemaker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years.
Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, hence the CRKT Bear Claw fixed blade knife design. A cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts just like an extension of your hand. It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, especially if their life is going to depend on it. The CRKT Bear Claw also comes with a versatile, gear compatible sheath for carry options. Blunt tip with triple point serrations and an emergency orange glass reinforced nylon handle round out this handy rescue tool.
