Futuristic Folder

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 side 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. There's a deep pocket clip for concealed, tip-up carry. The knife is available in three unique colors, two of which have been made exclusively for Massdrop. 

At checkout, choose Blue (base price), Black (+ $3), or Bronze (+ $3).
