CRKT Rakkasan (1520)
This tactical fixed blade was designed by a war vet for his brothers and sisters who are still abroad. It’s got the capability of a utility knife, and the powerful force of a last-resort defense tool. When you only have room for one, the Rakkasan™ delivers.
As a part of the Forged By War® program, war veteran Austin McGlaun designed the Rakkasan™ in his Columbus, Georgia shop. The name, reminiscent of the WWII paratroopers from the 187th infantry regiment, is the Japanese translation of “umbrella for falling,” because they were completely unfamiliar with the American combat tactic.
