CRKT Provoke CompactGET IT
When it comes to EDC, many people are ultra-particular about the items they pack with them on a daily basis. Utility blades, specifically, are a very nit-picky segment for any person that finds comfort in being prepared with a tool that can (and will) come in clutch in a variety of situations. And we think that the Provoke Compact is the latest mind-blowing blade that we’ve seen from the brilliant crew over at CRKT.
First and foremost, the design of the original Provoke is unlike anything we’d ever seen before, and to take that same design and produce it in a slightly smaller package is sheer genius. Designed by Joe Caswell in Newbury Park, CA, the Provoke Compact features a 2.26-inch plain-edge blade with a stonewash finish, and an ultra-rugged aluminum handle for optimal lightweight feel without compromising durability.
This knife fits very neatly on your person, and the blade is deployed with one click flick of your thumb, utilizing CRKT’s Kinematic technology. This knife is just such a cool piece of gear, and for all of our outdoor summer excursions, this is our trusty tool that performs on all levels. If you’re looking for something different in your EDC kit this season, then look no further. This will get the job done, especially when that job is vital.—Jon Perino, senior editor
