Plain Blade Alaska Bwana Folding Knife -
The Alaska Bwana is the folding skinner Russ Kommer designed and made for himself, translated into CRKT production models. He won't embellish a knife if it doesn't improve the function, so the knife includes only the features Russ Kommer wanted for himself in a clean, purposeful design.

This is a supremely comfortable knife to grip, with a curved handle and finger scallops which make it feel like shaking hands with an old friend. There are no sharp angles or pressure points to cause fatigue.

It is also comfortable to carry, thanks to a flat profile and through drilled lightening holes. The custom stainless steel clothing and gear clip is removable, partly because Russ prefers pocket carry, and doesn't use one.

The full bellied skinning blade features a high, hollow grind. Blade material is tough AUS 6M stainless steel in a bright satin finish. Friction grooves at the top of the blade and near the tip increase feel and control in slippery skinning conditions. The patented* Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS) effectively makes the knife a fixed blade when actuated with a push of the thumb, a comforting thing to know when y ou are working under adverse conditions.

The strong InterFrame build is ideal for this knife, with dual stainless steel 420J2 liners, one locking, and black textured injection molded Zytel scales. Add a Zytel back spacer and Torx fasteners and you have exceptional rigidity.

420J2 -
420J2 is a low carbon stainless steel and also the lowest grade of cutlery class stainless steel that is available. It is quite tough and resistant to corrosion. It has low wear resistance and edge holding ability making it a poor choice for a blade steel.

Many CRKT folders feature the patented Lake and Walker Knife Safety system. This system converts folders into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked, and when the LAWKS lever is slid forward. To fold the knife, simply slide the lever back, and release the liner.
