Forged to look its best when things get ugly. When you’re in a combat situation in dark, CQB environments you don’t want something pretty. You want something you can draw fast and use instinctively. Enter the Clever Girl™ fixed blade tactical knife with an upswept blade. As part of the Forged By War™ program, Austin McGlaun of Columbus, Georgia, designed the Clever Girl™. It aligns with his philosophy that a knife is more than a tool. It’s a psychological deterrent that is very different from a gun. It tells your attacker very quickly that you mean business. The Clever Girl™ was created so you can grab it, use it if necessary, and then go home to your family. With a black, powder coated upswept blade, this is a knife that is all about function. It’s here to protect you and bring a soldier home at the end of his watch – be it in the field, on a mission, or in high stress environments. Just grab hold of the tough injection molded glass- reinforced nylon handle. Draw it from a sheath that’s MOLLE compatible for multiple carry options. Then let your body go on autopilot. In the fight for your life, you don’t want a pretty girl watching your back. You want a Clever Girl™. About the Forged By War™ program – In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them in the battlefield. CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War™ program. These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans’ charity of choice. Mission ready tools that are, Forged By War™.
