Since we introduced the Folding Sting in 2004, there have been so many requests to bring back the original that we went searching for a company that could follow the original design at an affordable price. Columbia River was the perfect choice.

Originally designed in the 1970's, in reaction to the poorly designed boot knives available then, the Sting was intended as a boot knife for hunting and personal defense. It was a tough knife from the beginning. It's even tougher now, and hot forging is the reason. The Sting begins life as an ordinary blank of 1050 carbon steel, similar to the alloy used in traditional Samurai swords, which is first hot forged and then precision ground into final shape. After heat treating and normalizing to improve the grain structure, the Sting is then heat treated and quenched to achieve hardness, and tempered to arrive at an optimum hardness with excellent strength. While they are very tough, low alloy steels do not have the rust resistance imparted by the chromium and nickel in stainless steels, so CRKT applies a black non-reflective powder coat finish to impede corrosion.

The 3-1/8" spear point blade features two Razor-sharp cutting edges and the integral handle is contoured to fit the bare or gloved hand nicely with thumb detents for grip. Comes complete with a Cordura® multi carry sheath with a Zytel® insert. Weighs 3.9 oz. Measures 6-7/8" overall. Made in China.

We reccommend Rust Free to protect this blade.

Suggested retail $89.99.
