Opening is just "press down, pull up" in one continuous motion, thanks to the designer Russ Kommer and Fulcrum Action* inventor Charles Kain.
Just when we thought we had seen every way possible to open a folding knife, a prototype arrived from knifemaker and inventor Charles Kain of Indianapolis, Indiana, that demonstrated his Fulcrum™ Action (patent pending). It didn’t take us long to purchase the rights to this surprising new lock for use in CRKT production folders.
We felt the Fulcrum Action* was perfect for a sleek design proposed by knifemaker Russ Kommer, and so we put Russ to work integrating it into his folder, which we call the Fulcrum™.
The knife world enthusiastically embraced the Fulcrum. It was voted the Imported Knife of the Year at the 2008 Blade Show in Atlanta, and was given a Special Innovation award at the 2008 International IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany.
To open the Fulcrum, simply press the left side of the frame down with your thumb. The blade swings out to the 90-degree position. Then pull the left side of the frame back, gripping with your index finger at the choil, and the blade continues to rotate open and lock in the open position. After a few openings, you can do it naturally in one continuous, fluid action, or “fulcrumation."
To close the Fulcrum, simply release the stainless steel locking liner. One-hand closing is also fast and easy.
The build uses our high-carbon steel InterFrame with a steel pivot at the back spacer. The stainless steel bolsters have a diamond pattern. All models come with a removable stainless steel pocket/gear clip.

Russ Kommer of Fargo, North Dakota, has been a commercial hunting guide since 1980. He started making knives when one of his hunter clients brought a custom knife and dressed an entire moose without sharpening it. He began working with noted Alaskan knifemaker John Shore, who took Russ into his shop and showed him how to grind. He began making his own line of knives in 1997, and his custom catalog shows a range of fixed blade knives, including Bowie and Camp Knives, Fillet Knives, Hunters, Fighters and Boot Knives, all available with a variety of exotic handles and with engraving. He is the designer of the CRKT Bear Claw, Big Eddy, a growing number of hunting knives including our Pro and Signature Hunters and the assisted opening Full Throttle. He says, “I set out to make a quality knife that would perform and be comfortable to handle. I have found knifemaking to be my calling, and would like to thank all the people who have helped me along the way!"
A very widely used EDC steel, AUS-8 can take a very nice edge while also maintaining moderate edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
