Nestled within the picturesque Canadian Monashee Mountains, where nature thrives and big game roams freely, CRKT’s Hunt & Fish collaboration with renowned custom knife maker Russ Kommer takes its name and inspiration. This outdoorsman’s companion is equipped with a substantial, big-bellied blade, ergonomically designed molded TPR handles, and the innovative Field Strip technology for effortless maintenance, making it an indispensable addition to any outdoor enthusiast’s gear.
Blade: The Monashee’s blade features a time-tested Skinner profile, favored by generations of hunters for its ample belly. Designed for smooth, reliable deployment, it operates on nylon washers that provide maximum resistance to corrosion. A generously textured thumb stud ensures effortless one-handed opening, even in challenging conditions or when wearing gloves. A pronounced thumb ramp, working in harmony with the handle, delivers enhanced control and security during use.
Handle: Crafted from a lightweight yet durable Double Injection Molded Thermoplastic Rubber, the Monashee’s handles offer exceptional grip and security due to the deep finger grooves. Disassembling the knife is a breeze with the Field Strip system: flip the tab at the pivot and rotate the gear wheel at the pommel end, enabling easy cleaning and reassembly by reversing the process. An inset stainless steel liner ensures a reliable lock-up and facilitates smooth, straightforward operation.
For practical utility type usage, the Monashee comes with a right-hand, tip-up stainless steel pocket clip.
8Cr13MoV Stainless Steel: This highly corrosion-resistant stainless steel combines decent toughness with reliable edge retention, placing it in the same class as 440B and AUS-8.
