Clean, stout, and ready for any task, the CRKT Avant is the latest from Oregon-based knifemaker Eric Ochs. Though the Avant may seem simple at first glance, simplicity is the mark of top-notch design. Crafted with a 3.2-inch drop-point, the knife can be opened multiple ways. There’s the flipper or a thumb disc if you prefer a manual opening style. Whatever you choose, it’s smooth as single malt scotch thanks to the IKBS opening system. The handle on this gentlemanly knife is comprised of a steel liner lock with carbon fiber scales. Bronze accents on the pivot collar and thumb disc help elevate the look. To match them, the bronzed pocket clip can be positioned on either side.

“If you don’t have a good handle, you don’t have a good knife. If you can't hold on to a knife, you can't cut very well." Growing up in Oregon against a backdrop of rivers, valleys, and forests, Eric Ochs understood this from an early age. In fact, that age was six, when his father gave him his first pocket knife. A year later, Ochs got his first Swiss Army Knife, and today he can’t remember a day without a folder by his side. A self-taught talent, Eric started making knives in 2007. His designs have become known for their blend of simplicity, balance, and function. He’s also an avid hunter, fisherman, and kayaker, so he has ample opportunity to field test his knives—which is testament to why they’re so useful.
