CRKT Ritual Compact


Designed for daily use, the CRKT Ritual Compact is an assisted folding knife inspired by old-world Persian fixed blades.

This everyday carry knife features a shorter blade at just over three inches and is crafted from 12C27 steel for edge retention. An assisted opening mechanism and IKBS bearings ensure quick and easy opening and closing.

The micarta handle has a stainless-steel bolster that combines strength with visual appeal.

The Ritual Compact was designed by Alan Folts, a master craftsman and an acclaimed designer with over two dozen CRKT models to his credit.
