CRKT Snap-On Relay Pocketknife
Article first appeared at Shooting Illustrated.
Most people are familiar with the Snap-On brand of tools. The choice of mechanics, do-it-yourselfers and craftsmen, Snap-On’s tools and equipment are known for being rugged and long-lasting. You know, the kind of reputation you want in a pocketknife.
Using that mindset, CRKT introduced the Snap-On branded Relay for those that favor Snap-On tools and appreciate a well-made, useful knife. The Relay itself is a Ken Onion design with a 3.16-inch, drop-point blade. It’s got a liner lock and uses CRKT’s IKBS ball-bearing opening system for seamless, one-handed opening.
A “tire tread” scale pattern keeps the Relay firmly anchored for any cutting task, while the pocket clip is cleverly recessed to assist in operation. Slim, light (4.7 ounces) and functional, the Relay has numerous finishing touches (like a rounded blade spine to reduce catching on pockets) that make it ideal for every day carry.
MSRP: $95.95. Also available with a black finish with serrations ($99.95).v
