If you were a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in Philadephia
in 1787, you would feel right at home with CRKT's new line of gentleman's
folders, so they named it the Delegate™
line. Classic knifemaking tradition comes through in their understated design and use of natural materials.
But like the Founding Fathers, there is a revolutionary aspect to this line. We have incorporated our OutBurst®
assist with our patent-pending* Fire Safe™
release mechanism which is built into the thumb stud.
When the blade is closed, it is securely held in place by the OutBurst
spring bias, and is also locked in place by the Fire Safe pin in the
locking liner, which engages the blade.
To open the blade, simply press in on the Fire Safe thumb stud, and
rotate it forward to begin blade opening. Once the blade is open
approximately 30 degrees, the OutBurst assist takes over and instantly
completes the opening action. In practice, one-handed opening is a fast,
single movement of the thumb.
This system provides exceptional safety because it is very difficult, if
not impossible, to open the blade accidentally. Bumping or pressing the
thumb stud does nothing. The user must know the secret rotating action
to open the blade.
