Order Details

When A.G. handled the prototype of the original Provoke, he was impressed with the functionality. It is modeled after a traditional Karambit with an oxide coated hawksbill-style blade forged of premium D2 steel for durability and excellent edge retention.

The opening mechanism is innovative and futuristic. Nudge the upper crossbar with your thumb while the rest of your fingers firmly grasp the handle, and the blade slides open and locks in place. Shift the discrete lever at the base of the finger loop and the blade retreats into its closed position. (CRKT's video is available on our product page at The pocket clip is also a first, sitting almost completely flush with the handle and likewise activated with light thumb pressure. You will love the challenge and the practice it takes to operate the knife smoothly. Once practiced, it is impressive.

These two versions of the Provoke have a 2-3/8" Karambit style blade of D2 high carbon steel at 60-61 Rc. with a black titanium nitride coating or a earth color Cerakote® coating. The handle is aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum for supreme toughness. Measures 4-7/8" closed and 7" open. Weighs about 6.0 oz. Made in Taiwan.
