Another popular knife from CRKT is the CEO. Designed by Richard Rogers in Magdalena, New Mexico - this knife is a gentlemens carry made to be worn with a suit and tie. The CEO embodies the working spirit of everyday carry with a supremely low profile and no corners cut on usability and ergonomics. At first glance, it could be mistaken for a pen tucked into a shirt pocket, and that's the way Richard Rogers envisioned.

3. CRKT Tuna

With a profile that suggests strong forward momentum and a blade shape that looks like a deep-sea carnivore, the Tuna everyday carry folding knife slices through packages and boxes faster than a Bluefin slices through the swell on a taut line. Designed by Lucas Burnley in Bend, Oregon - this blade features a 3.22" blade and is made from 8Cr14MoV steel with a stonewash finish. Get the power of one of the world’s largest, fastest fish in your pocket.
