Here’s a quiet new release from CRKT: a variant of the Clever Girl fixed blade with a new handle material and a partially serrated blade.
The Clever Girl is a signature design of Austin McGlaun, longtime friend of KnifeNews and a key talent in CRKT’s corral. It first released in 2016, one of three inaugural knives in CRKT’s Forged by War line, a series of veteran-designed knives, a portion of whose sales contribute to various veteran-oriented charities. It made a major impression with its sweeping Persian-style trailing point, full tang ruggedness, and hard use-ready SK-5 steel. In 2019 the Clever Girl line grew with the addition of a folder, and now the original fixed blade gets a second variation.
It isn’t much news, but those Veff serrations look wicked on this knife.
