CRKT Squid XM Brown

about this product

Item #: CL-2495BN


Order Details


Bigger and better than ever, the Squid™ folder is back. Years ago knife designer Lucas Burnley brought the iconic Squid to life. Skyrocketing in popularity as a compact carry, the folding knife became a top choice for those looking to strike the right balance of simplicity, performance, and functionality. In 2022 Lucas took a stab at reimagining this time-honored design with the larger SQUID™ XM.  Still checking the box of being a versatile everyday carry, the longer blade length handles tasks both big and small—and is now recognized as a bit more "extra medium" in size.

Keeping the blade width at nearly one inch and using the drop-point style, Burnley was able to give it a good balance of tip strength and point geometry for utility tasks, packing all the functionality of a full-size tactical folder, into an easy to carry, compact design. It comes with a frame lock for safety and Assisted Opening for super fast deployment. For 2024 CRKT® has released a new version of the Squid XM with earth brown G10 handle scales.

The 3" blade is made of D2 steel and has hardness of 60-62 Rc. The front handle scale is made of earth brown G-10 with a back scale of black stonewashed stainless steel. Frame lock with a tip up carry low profile pocket clip. Closed length is 4". Weighs 3.6 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $79.99.
