The Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) Pangolin fixed blade knife is a very nice combination of craftsmanship, materials, and purpose-built design. The Pangolin could make a perfect back-up knife for patrol or SWAT work, or just a very nice off-duty knife as well. Designed by Ryan Johnson, of RMJ Tactical in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Pangolin not only looks good, it feels great and should perform well too.
The Chromium, Molybdenum blended steel of the Pangolin increases hardness and durability, as well as improving tensile strength, wear and abrasion resistance, and corrosion resistance. The glass-reinforced nylon handle, with unique textured grip, provides significant grip without being too aggressive to be comfortable.
