Young knifemaker Gerry McGinnis is not well known yet in the cutlery world. But he will be when the word gets out about his new production CRKT Summa knife designs. These locking liner folders offer the materials and quality usually found only in custom knives costing many times as much.
As an engineering student in college, Gerry thought these CRKT designs should be named after words that are foremost on his mind right now.
The Summa T 1166K is a sleek, full-size folder with a 3.75" drop point blade of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a very high hollow grind and tactical black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. For fast either-hand opening, just press the flipper.
The knife comes with our exclusive combination patented* Veff Serrations for fastest cutting through rope, twine, netting, and vegetation.
Summa models feature an open InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, hand-shaped black and blue layered polished Micarta scales, and a rigid Zytel® back spacer. The liners and custom removable stainless steel clip receive a blue titanium nitride coating, for an effect that is cool and understated.
At CRKT, we have never produced a knife based on eye-appeal alone, but the Summa's graceful and sinuous shape, almost uninterrupted by studs or hardware, is one of the most attractive we have ever manufactured. Everything is just right: look, feel, balance and grip.
