TTAG: CRKT’s Padawan Frame Lock Folding Knife Review

0

Columbia River Knife & Tool has always had a great partnership with custom knifemakers to bring practical and affordable to the people, straight from the muse of some of the world’s best designers and makers. The Padawan, designed by Pedro Buzetti, is a great example of that.

The Padawan is a framelock design that uses a 3.01 drop point or wharncliffe blade of 14C28N stainless steel. It has a flipper opening mechanism that’s fast and smooth. Which you’d expect being that it rides on an IKBS ball bearing pivot designed by Flavio Ikoma, who just happens to be whom Pedro studied under. Thus the Padawan name. Just in case you aren’t a Star Wars nerd fan, a padawan is an apprentice to a Jedi, and has come to mean in common usage an untrained or inexperienced person. Pedro may have started that way, but his designs show that he is far from inexperienced now.

Gotta love the Broomhandle Mauser/Blaster. TTAG has changed hands, but I still want to support Tim.
