CR6855: Ignitor™ Sport - Polished Blade and Frame, Green & Black Scales, Combined Razor-Sharp & Veff Serrated Cutting Edge
Columbia River


CRKT describes this item as follows:

This series is ready to start a big bang, with OutBurst™ opening, Fire Safe™ actuation, layered G10 scales, and optional Veff™ Serrations.


We hope to ignite your passion for high-tech folders with this new knife series. That’s why we call it the Ignitor™. It raises the bar for all value-priced folders, by using premium blade steel, layered G10 scales, and patented features including assisted opening, a unique knife safety and our special serrations. We challenge you to find a knife of this quality for the money. Consider these features:

First the blade. It’s a modifed drop point design with a high hollow grind. We use premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel. You have your choice of a Razor-Sharp edge or combination Razor-Sharp edge with our patented(1) Veff™ Serrations, which are superior for fast cutting of cord, netting and vegetation.

The frame uses our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and layered G10 scales, textured and CNC machined to aid grip. The deep finger choil and pommel fit the hand nicely. The flat cross-section makes for comfortable in-pocket carry.

The true breakthrough is our ability to combine our patented(2) OutBurst™ assisted opening with the patent-pending(3) Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in a sport and work folder.

All models include a removable stainess steel clip.

Ignitor™ Sport. The standard Ignitor models have a polished blade and frame, with green and black G10 scales. It’s a contemporary and sophisticated look that exudes custom-knife quality.

So that’s the Ignitor story. Did you feel a spark? If not, get down to your favorite retailer and put one in your hand.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Awesome serrations
Cost versus fit and finish is excellant. Veff serrations are awesome. Not an every day carry knife, but a special purpose knife for the boat or in your survival kit bsg. The opener needs breaking in. I am using a penetrating synethic oil.

ignitor
Worked great, quick release with little or no excess play when open. It took a few times to figure how open correctly

Ignitor is number one
It is a beautiful knife in form and function; in design and color scheme it is most appealing. The blade takes an edge like a razor blade and keeps it - it slits things open like nobody's business. However, after the first couple of days of opening and closing it repeatedly, it stopped opening readily. My thumb got sore from trying to get it open and I finally gave up and put it away for a day or two. When I picked it up again, it opened sometimes, but sometimes not. It is very frustrating and, as I said, my thumb has a sore spot on it, because I haven't found the magic placement on the button where it will open every time. Any suggestions? Or should I try a replacement. It seems to work VERY well right after I oil it or put graphite on it, but that's only for a little while. I can't carry a bottle of oil around with me and oil it every 20 minutes, can I? That seems to be the only workable solution at the present. Perhaps I SHOULD try a replacement after all - maybe this one is a lemon.
