Say “A.G. Russell,” and you have to immediately say “first,” because this living legend was one of the inventors of the modern knife industry. But despite all his awards and achievements, A.G. is first of all a knifemaker. The CRKT production Sting™, complete with a custom Cordura®/Zytel® sheath, is a multipurpose one-piece utility knife that is just about indestructible.

Hot forging is the reason the Sting is so tough. It begins life as an ordinary blank of 1050 carbon steel, similar to the alloy used in traditional Samurai swords, which is first hot forged and then precision ground into final shape. We apply a black non-reflective powder coat finish to resist corrosion.

The spear point blade features two Razor-Sharp cutting edges. The integral handle is contoured to fit the bare or gloved hand nicely and provides heft and balance, with thumb detents for grip. A large lanyard hole is provided, allowing the use of a wrist lanyard, or carry as a neck knife.

Like A.G. Russell himself, the Sting is a tough character that has earned its respect

CRKT Sting Fixed bde knife December 7, 2009
Reviewer: Lary Fusco from Brandon, VT United States  
I wanted a knife that was instantly ready for use.

Folders were obviously slow.

Spring assist models only a bit faster.

Automatics were fast, but only if they were tiny, with short blades.(you need a big spring in a small knife to be fast).

Then it hit me......why not use a knife whose blade is already deployed? A no-brainer. It is a good value, rugged, and comes with a handy sheath, which I love.

Also, this sheath comes with a bunch of straps of various sizes and lengths.

I guess I'm not smart enough to figure out how they can be used! Anyone wanna shed some light on this?
