CR2395: SpareTool
Columbia River

Introducing the CRKT SpareTool: A rugged and useful multitool that’s a lot more sophisticated than it first appears.

Raleigh Tabor is a bit of a perfectionist and has a “feel for the steel.” After a long career as an autobody man, he became a custom knifemaker. He says, “I became interested in gadgets. I tried to incorporate several tools into one slim and trim tool that would be easily accessible and useful.” The result is the SpareTool, a simple and honest new offering from Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT).

Starting with a Razor-Sharp Wharncliffe fixed blade from 5Cr15MoV stainless steel bar stock, Raleigh has also incorporated a pry bar/nail puller, bottle opener, ruler scales in inches and millimeters, a file edge, and a 6 mm wrench which also serves to drive the included double-ended flat and Phillips screwdriver hex bit. The bit is stored in the molded Zytel retainer.

The injection-molded Zytel sheath has a detent which locks it securely to the finger choil so the blade is fully protected when using the other tool functions. The detent also allows inverted carry with a lanyard. A removable belt clip allows carry on belts, webbing and straps.

All in all, it’s a handy and useful precision-built gadget that will appeal to every craftsman and outdoorsman. It’s just a few ounces in the pocket or pack, but it makes an ideal utility and survival tool, especially for the price.

  • Just insert the hex bit into the 6 mm wrench to use the SpareTool as a T-driver for flat and Phillips head screws.

About the Knife Designer
Raleigh Tabor says, “As the son of an AirForce Lt. Col., I traveled most of my life.In Wyoming, where we were stationed during my teens, I learned to enjoy the outdoors and the challenge of hunting and fishing. When my father retired in the’70s we moved back to our home state of Georgia, where I am still an avid hunter and fisherman. I began working in the autobody industry and owned several businesses before retiring. I decided to try my hand at knifemaking and discovered I had a ‘feel for the steel.’ As time went on I felt I had come upon a challenge I could actually enjoy. I began designing and making folders and straight knives by hand, plus leather sheaths to fit each one. As enjoyable as my hobby was, I soon found that by word of mouth it had turned into a success. I have always been a perfectionist and would not offer a product to anyone unless it met my approval. The SpareTool originated through my interest in gadgets. I incorporated several tools into one slim and trim tool that is easily accessible and useful.”

Pros: None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Included Tools
prybar useless
I bought the spare tool to use while painting to open paint pails and small duty stuff. As others said the belt clip needs to be a clip on not fed through the belt because you are continuously needing to use the knife with the sheath on. But my main problem is I tried to pry a nail out using the method the instr. sheet said and the pry bar broke across the hex hole where the screwdriver goes this is a very week spot making the prybar useless for anything other than paint buckets.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Included Tools
Great concept,poorly realized.
I had intended to use it at work. The belt attachment isn't so good with 5 other things on the belt. If the belt loop is used and a function other than cutting is required, the tool must be removed from the belt with the sheath on. Pocket carry or neck lanyard are other options that don't sit well. The bottle opener and the pry-bar end are both sort of sharp for that to safe.The screwdriver bit is not magnetized and falls out under use.
