Tailbone™ | CRKT®
Designed by T.J. Schwarz.
Canada's source for CRKT Knives and Tools.
TThe Tailbone™ Skeleton knife may look like your average neck knife; until you hold it. The machine chain handle with paracord wrap comes alive and moves for optimal ergonomics. When cutting; the flexible handle is unnoticeable.
In our world biomimicry—designs inspired by the natural world—are everywhere. T.J. Schwarz of Boise, Idaho borrowed the concept when he designed a fixed blade knife handle after a fish’s spine. Never one to shy away from a bold new idea, T.J. created the Tailbone™ with a simple stonewashed drop point blade and a handle that blows convention out of the water.
The flexible handle moves vertically, conforming to your grip, or to your chest when it’s worn as a neck knife without allowing any horizontal play. It’s wrapped in paracord for improved grip with a sizeable finger hole and jimping for control. A strong, injection-molded sheath lashes easily to a pack or quickly becomes a neck knife.
The Tailbone™ is everything you expected and everything Mother Nature didn’t. Now do we put this knife in folding or fixed section?
