Tom Krein is a young custom knifemaker who has created quite a stir with
his Mid Tech Dogfish neck knife. It seemed like the perfect affordable
CRKT production knife, so here it is. Tom has a great sense of style, so
unlike many skeletonized flat blades, the Dogfish is graceful, gives a
secure grip, and also has that dogfish face at the pommel which turns
out to be—a lanyard hole and bottle opener! It has a secure finger choil
and friction grooves at the thumb spine and near the butt.
E.D.M. wire cut it from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel,
bevel grind the 2.25” modified Wharncliffe blade, give it a fine
bead-blast finish and add a Razor-Sharp edge.
You also get a custom-fitted six-eyelet Kydex sheath that grips the
knife securely for inverted carry with the neck chain included. It’s a
useful, friendly minimal knife that’s a great value.
