CRKT Incendor Assist Knife Review — Quick Review

CRKT Incendor Assist Knife
CRKT Incendor Assist Knife

Ken Steigerwalt designed the CRKT Incendor.  This assist open knife uses the Outburst™ mechanism to fire out the traditional drop point blade.  The blade features a bead blast finish and a grey titanium nitride coat.  The nearly 3″ blade has a slight hollow grind that makes it an ideal blade for everday cutting chores.  The blade also has the Fire Safe™ thumbstud opening system.  The thumbstud actually has a spring inside that allows you to depress it slightly.  Without pressing the thumbstud down, the blade actually won’t fire.  It is a secondary safety to keep the blade from misfiring.

The handle scales on the Incendor are  milled G10 with several curved steps that give additional grip to a very ergonomic handle.  The handle measures 3.97″.  It has a deep carry tip down pocket clip.  A true deep carry, the only part that shows out of your pocket is a thin strip of pocket clip.

The Incendor from CRKT is an ideal every day carry knife for anyone looking.  Let me know what you think of yours below.
