CR2784: Crawford 2784 Desta


Two simple components make up this knife designed to take on every last task. 

This compact everyday carry folder is as sleek and simple as they come but features an ahead-of-the-curve forward lockback folding mechanism — the tighter you grip it, the tighter it locks into place. Leave no daily duty left undone with the Desta. 

You'd expect nothing short of innovation from West Memphis, Arkansas designer Pat Crawford. He's renowned as a pioneer in the combat folder genre and has clearly demonstrated his expertise with the Desta. 

This unique everyday carry folder was originally designed as a compact self-defense knife but evolved to be an easy-to-carry everyday companion. Both the blade and the handle feature a black stonewash finish as does the low-profile one-position pocket clip. A covert thumb slot blade deployment activates the smooth action and the forward lockback mechanism secures the blade in place. To close the blade, push up the spine of the handle near the pivot screw to disengage the lock. 

Desta translates to joy and happiness — take down daily tasks with delight with this compact EDC.
