CRKT Taps An Elite Special Forces Green Beret To Design Its Latest EDC Multi-Tool

Category: Gear

When it comes to designing tactically-focused EDC gear, few are as qualified as those with elite military and real-world survival and combat experience. So when the Colombia River Knife and Tool company recently set out to deliver a highly-utilitarian and tactical multi-tool, the Northwest knife maker called on ex-Special Forces Green Beret, Jeremy Valdez, a seasoned 14-year veteran that’s earned two Purple Hearts and half-a-dozen Bronze Stars.

Created as a more practical and utilitarian version of the existing Valdez-designed Septimo knife, the Septimo Multi-Tool features a liner-locking 2.86” (0.10” thick) oxide-finished 8Cr13MoV tanto blade with an extremely sharp Veff Serration for quickly cutting through paracords, seat-belts, ropes, or straps. The multi-tool’s 4.84” handle is made from rugged glass-reinforced nylon with 6061 aluminum inlays and features an integrated flathead and Phillips head screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a glass breaker, and an adjustable locking wrench. Measuring 7.63” when opened, this tool offers an impressive range of versatility and uses, while coming in a pocketable, 4.40oz package. Backed by a lifetime warranty, the CRKT Septimo Multi-Tool is available now for $60.
