CR2052: 2052 MAK-1 and Extrik-8-R Combo Pack
James McGowan is a professional firefighter in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Due to his passion for the outdoors, he started making "hard working knives" and joined the Canadian Knifemakers' Guild in 1998. Drawing from his extensive real-life fire and rescue experiences, he has designed the CRKT production M.A.K.-1™ and Extrik-8-R™ emergency rescue tools, based on the day-to-day needs of professional firefighters, rescue workers, EMTs, police Special Response Teams, and military operators. 

The M.A.K.-1™ System includes the M.A.K.-1 2050 tool, high-strength nylon fabric sheath, and a satin finish Extrik-8-R™ 2051, described in detail below. It makes the perfect rescue combination for anyone responding to an emergency scene. 

The M.A.K.-1™ (Multiple Access Knife) is a rescue and rapid entry knife, made of tough 3Cr13 stainless steel. It has a blunt chisel pry-bar tip for opening doors and windows and a Razor-Sharp knife edge suitable for heavy cutting or hacking tasks. The heavily textured and grooved G10 scales offer an aggressive grip and allow control when wearing gloves. They can be removed for cleaning. 

The M.A.K.-1 gives two window-breaking options. A twist breaker groove allows controlled breaking of automobile side windows, while a carbide tip butt breaker allows smashing of building windows or automotive back glass. An 8mm groove functions as a wrench for disconnecting GM-style side terminal batteries. A reflective orange paracord lanyard is included. 

The satin finish M.A.K.-1 2050 comes complete with a custom high-strength nylon fabric sheath which will hold a shove knife and an Extrik-8-R™ tool. 

The Extrik-8-R™ 2050 is a lightweight satin-finished seat belt cutter and multi-tool. It has finger holes and grip grooves allowing use even with the heaviest gloves. It also has a rectangular relief which is sized to be an oxygen bottle wrench. James has added a simple blade screwdriver tip to one end, and Phillips screwdriver tip to the other end. The Extrik-8-R also has a hand-tied reflective orange paracord fob. A fitted Kydex® sheath is included which allows easy carry on belts or webbing.

Cons: Weight, None
Well made but too big
The knife is well made and a good practical design. But it's so much longer than the pocket on my bunker pants that I can't carry it without fear of losing it. Putit in my bug out bag instead and bought the small Channel lock rescue tool for my bunker gear.

CRKT MAK-1 Extrik-8-R Combo Pack
It's a backup that rides in my vehicle... used for what it's designed purpose - to help either break out of my own vehicle or to help others if I'm at the scene of an accident.

I got this for my wife after she broke the tip off of her (formerly my) old Ka-Bar trying to pry a hinge out of a doorway. I had to grind a new point onto the Ka-Bar for the second time. She has used the MAK-1 multiple times since we got it and she loves how many odd tasks it can be used for. It is tough and has enough mass to do some fairly heavy work. And it cuts when it needs to. The belt cutter is a good box opener too. It's just what she needed. I'll probably have fewer of my tools broken now that she has it. Get one for your wife.
