The CRKT Goken Uses Multiple Inspirations to Create a Solid Tool

Designed by revered martial artist Jame Williams, the CRKT Goken blends elements of tactical and military design for a piece of gear built to handle any experience. Inspired by traditional Japanese knife design, this tactical blade utilizes a heavily modified tanto blade built to be a better all-around tool, when compared to traditional tanto silhouettes. The blade measures in at 3.7" and features an EDP coating to protect it from wear. The opening action of the knife is handled by a flipper tab, and the locking mechanism is a liner lock hidden in the G10 scales of the CRKT Goken.

While the design of the CRKT Goken is impressive and incredibly functional, its standout feature is the use of CRKT's latest Field Strip Technology. This clever new feature allows users to completely strip and clean the knife without any tools while being easy to reassemble in a solid manner.
