The CRKT Directive is a tactically inspired everyday carry folder that turns to-dos into have-done. Where it lacks in frills, it makes up in capability. Initially trained as a watchmaker, Sussex, Wisconsin designer Matthew Lerch understands the intersection of simplicity and performance. His designs are inspired by everything from functional performance in nature to a well-built race engine, and the Directive is no exception. The tanto blade features a sleek black oxide finish and is deployed from black two-tone glass-reinforced nylon handles by a straightforward flipper. A locking liner keeps you safe while the blade is deployed. Call on the Directive for your everyday tasks and it'll answer with sharp precision and impressive force.
