A drifter is someone who travels around from place to place without a home, looking for work to get by. CRKT applies the ethos of a hard-working traveler always looking for his next job to the latest Badass Knife of the Week.

The CRKT Drifter is a no-nonsense knife that will get the job done with no questions asked. The knife has been called the best pocket knife for the everyday man because it is inexpensive, functional, and the perfect size for EDC.

The 2.875-inch blade has a versatile drop point design that works well in all types of situations. The blade engages quickly and smoothly with dual thumb studs for ambidextrous opening. Budget 8Cr14Mov stainless steel is easy to maintain and resists corrosion like it’s no one’s business.

It’s also available in a serrated blade.

And thanks to its under 3-inch size, it is legal to carry in most places.

This version of the knife boasts a comfortably sized stainless steel handle. This not only makes it exceptionally durable but also allows for a strong frame lock mechanism to keep the blade firmly engaged.

A single position right hand carry pocket clip is simple and effective.
