Browsing SureFire’s website, you’ll notice they specialize in combat knives, but they do make at least one utilitarian knife: the Crank. Their reputation must precede them, though. You can’t find it on their website, but one magazine advertisement for this knife claimed you could make a spear out of the knife by using the frame holes for lashing the knife to a stick.
The compact and lightweight knife flips open to reveal a 3″ stainless steel blade. To achieve its sparse 3.2 oz. weight, SureFire makes the frame from aluminum. At the bottom of the frame, a 1/2″ hexagonal cutout serves as a wrench, and slots cut in the cutout hold coins so you can use the knife as a makeshift screwdriver. Rounding out the tools on the knife are a cord cutter and bottle opener on the blade that’s exposed when the knife is closed.
You’ll part with $180 to own the Crank, but a good knife can be worth its weight in gold.
