CRKT Unveils A More Pocketable & EDC-Friendly Provoke Morphing Karambit

Jun 1, 2021

Category: Gear

Originally introduced through a Kickstarter campaign before later entering production under the banner of Columbia River Knife and Tool, the Provoke is unequivocally one of the most unique and innovative knife designs in recent years with its clever three-piece construction and morphing karambit configuration. And while CRKT has since introduced the Joe Caswell-designed karambit in a myriad of new color variants, the company has now revealed that it will be adding a more compact version of the hawkbill-bladed folder to its lineup for 2021 with the Provoke Compact.

Approximately 10% smaller than the original, the more pocketable and EDC-friendly Compact-spec Provoke now measures 6.63” overall when open, though maintains practically all of the full-size item’s utility, with the blade only being 0.15” shorter. The actual design of the knife and its Kinematic deployment system also go entirely unchanged save for the smaller size, as do the Provoke Compact’s 6061 T6 aluminum handles/crossbar and D2 blade steel constructions. One minor difference worth noting, however, is the full-size Provoke’s 2.41” titanium-nitride-coated blade has been replaced with a 2.26” item that now sports a stonewashed finish. Expected to be released in additional color options over the coming months, the CRKT Provoke Compact will be priced at $150.
