With a design that is most advantageous for first responders, the CRKT Provoke features a quick blade deployment, via Kinematic innovation. The curved, talon-like blade is already shaped with a downward slant so the wrist doesn’t have to work nearly as hard.
Technical details include a titanium nitride finish that offers excellent resistance against corrosion and a D2 blade steel that easily takes and holds a sharp edge. The handle is made of 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, making it lightweight, yet extremely strong.
The Provoke could be the most innovative knife of 2019. It may have something to do with the fact that you can deploy the blade without ever having to move your fingers out of the way.
