Integral knife guru Peter Rassenti and Custom Knife Factory are joining forces for the third time to bring us the SNAFU 3.0. The latest in CKF’s ultra-premium production line keeps the look of its immediate predecessor, but changes up the dimensions.
If you’ve seen the previous CKF SNAFU, the appropriately named SNAFU 2.0, you’ll notice the 3.0 has the same blade shape as that knife. It is a broad drop point, with an intricate grind that brings together a bold tip, big swedge, and a long fuller without coming across as too complicated. But the overall length is scaled back somewhat here; the SNAFU 3.0’s blade length of 3.46 inches is almost half an inch shorter than that on the 2.0. It’s still more than enough blade length to qualify the SNAFU 3.0 for the “mid-sized EDC” designation, however, and the deployment method remains the same: you can flick it out with the thumb stud, or flip it open with the flipper tab.
I checked out CKF Knives at Blade Show this year. Solid stuff.View Linked Article
