Winner of the Massdrop community’s CRKT knives poll, the Deviation is a futuristic folder designed by knifemaker Terry Renner. With a 3.1-inch modified tanto blade made from 8Cr14MoV stainless steel, the Deviation looks striking and delivers impressive performance. The blade features a satin-finish on the flat and a polished, mirror-finish on the bevels and swedge, giving the knife an icy, almost robotic aesthetic. For deployment, simply press down on the flipper tab and the IKBS pivot system delivers the blade with ease. The handle is composed of stainless steel with milled accents that are finished with a blue ti-nitride coating. The Deviation also comes with a deep pocket clip for concealed, tip-up carry.
Note: This drop is limited to 100 units. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
