Columbia River describes this item as follows:
It's about to blast off: our striking new design fully equipped with
OutBurst™ opening, Fire Safe™ actuation, and stainless steel scale
This sport and work folder series embodies everything that we look for
in a CRKT product: rugged construction, premium blade steel, good grip
and balance, striking design and superfast assisted opening. All these
qualities come together in a knife group that is also very competitively
priced. We think it's a line that's really going to take off, so we're
calling it the Lift Off™.
This is a knife for those who want a bit of style and shine in their
personal carry. At its core is our InterFrame build with stainless steel
liners, one locking, with textured black Zytel® scales. The left scale
features a stainless steel insert with a bright brushed finish and deep
arrow pattern. In addition, both liners feature fine friction grooves at
the finger contact zone.
The blade is a satin-finished modifed drop point design with a notched
and swedged top edge and a high hollow grind. Blade steel is our
favorite premium stainless steel alloy, AUS 8. The Lift Off is available
in both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated
To give instant one-hand opening, we have incorporated our patented (1)
OutBurst™ assisted opening with the patent-pending (2) Fire Safe™
mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin.
It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud
is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Just just
press and nudge for instant lift off. It is both very fast, and very
safe, because simply pressing the Fire Safe button does not open the
knife. You must both press down and nudge the blade outward deliberately
before the Lift Off will open.
Lift Off models include a removable polished stainless steel clip.
All in all, the Lift Off series is a remarkable package of engineering,
design, and precision manufacturing. We did the work; all you have to do
is count backward from ten and visit Knifecenter.
