Award-winning custom knifemaker and Knifemakers’ Guild member Ed Van Hoy has designed a number of hot sellers for CRKT, but this one is On Fire. No really, that’s its name, On Fire, and it has all the right equipment to be one of our most popular personal knives.
This time Ed’s torrid notion is a frame-lock folder that is not only a shapely form in stainless steel and aluminum, but incorporates our advanced CRKT technology.

For example, the patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have used the knurled thumb stud to open the blade approximately 30 degrees. Action is super slick, thanks to bronze and Teflon bearings at the adjustable blade pivot. Conventional non-assisted models are also available for those who prefer them or to meet jurisdictional requirements.

Also neatly incorporated at the pivot is the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS), which effectively converts your folder into a virtual fixed blade when actuated— and that makes the On Fire not only a fast folder, but a very safe one.

The On Fire’s 2.375” drop point blade is premium AUS 8 stainless steel in a contemporary bead-blast finish. A swedged top grind and four lightening holes add to its appeal.
Ed’s open build is an unusual combination of a 420J2 stainless steel frame-lock with a 6061 T6 black anodized aluminum side plate, both liberally slotted and drilled to save weight.

Finally, a removable custom bead-blast stainless steel pocket/gear clip gives all the carry options imaginable, in pocket, on belt, or in bags and briefcases.
Maybe most important, this is a knife that is easy on the eye. Every curve is in the right place; every motion fluid like those of a good dancer.
Ed Van Hoy continues to light our fire.
