Product Description

Custom knife maker and metalworker Alan Folts really knows how to get the most into a small fixed blade knife design. The S.P.E.W. (Small Pocket Everyday Wharncliffe), is a slimmed down design for easy carry and all around blade utility. It is tough to argue against the value of having a knife along with you, especially one as versatile and comfortable as the S.P.E.W. The key to any great user knife is control. These small fixed blade designs from Alan Folts offer a few of the best that we have ever seen.

About the Designer

When it comes to knives, Alan Folts of Melbourne, FL knows all about giving back to the people. He climbed the ranks in college by entering knives in art shows. Since then he’s been adamant about teaching and passing on the skills of custom knife making to others. He specializes in one-of-a-kind fixed blades that have great ergonomics and sleek futuristic designs such as the top selling CRKT Minimalist Series. Alan Folts has been designing knives for over 20 years.

CRKT S.P.E.W 2388

In Depth Look

Specifically Built for Anything that Needs to be Cut.

A compact fixed blade neck knife with a Wharncliffe-style blade and tough G10 handle, it feels equally at home in the woods or around the house.

The S.P.E.W. (Small Pocket Everyday Wharncliffe) is designed by Alan Folts of Melbourne, FL. A designer and dedicated custom knife instructor with over 20 years’ experience, he cares deeply about helping folks learn about knives as tools, and passing along the skills of custom knife making to others.

This svelt dynamo packs a lot into its compact fixed blade knife design. A plain edge Wharncliffe-style blade rips through a variety of cutting tasks better than most knives of comparable size. You owe it to yourself to see how something so compact can come up so big with such great control.

Let your first two fingers take hold of the G10 handle. Wrap the last two around the cord fob for extra grip. Then see where you can go with it from there. You’ll find it’s tough to argue against the value of having a knife along with you, especially one as versatile and comfortable as the S.P.E.W. It’s slim in design only, not features.

The S.P.E.W. comes with a versatile carry sheath. Not that you’ll be keeping it in there for long.

Take it with you for when you might need it most—all of the time.

I wanted a lightweight, easy to carry, comfortable, and concealable knife. If you're looking for the same, this is it. The blade steel metallurgy isn't top notch, but for under $30 you shouldn't expect it to be. Mine was nice and sharp right out of the box and sports the attractive dull gray of the CRKT line on a Warncliffe blade. It has thumb serations on the spine for a positive grip and well placed logos on the blade. The handle is a nice black/brown checkered G10 and looks great. Mine was flawless as was the handle and sheath. No chips, no scratches, no marks. It fits snug in the lightweight kydex sheath and isn't cumbersome at all when used with the included lanyard. I attached the belt slide but haven't used it yet since I wanted it for neck carry. The blade tip is thin & long so only time will tell how well it holds up to abuse, but that's the downside to this blade design. I'm very satisfied with this little SPEW and highly recommend it if you're looking for a similar style knife.

This is a terrific design that easily slips into your pocket, or it has a belt clip that can be installed on the sheath. This feels really good in your hand and you can get a real solid grip. The knife fits the sheath like a glove, when you push it off it shoots right off the end of the knife and clears the blade with no problem.. If you like cool knives with great designs, then you need one of these!!

I already did own a CRKT MINIMALIST WHARNCLIFFE, which costs much less than this S.P.E.W. and is almost as good ... maybe better.

So ... The Minimalist has better handle ergonomics, with DEEP choils, in the grip ... THIS SPEW sibling has a "prettier" grip and a LONGER BLADE, which does come in way more handy when it comes to sectionning an apple or a pear or performing other food-related chores.

I do imagine that the SPEW might be a more effective defensive weapon, due strictly to it's increased length, over the Minimalist.

I would have to (reluctantly) recommend the SPEW over the Minimalist, due (ONLY) to the extra blade length which ... yeah ... COULD save your life and will allow a broader range of useful tasks. The price and the grip of the Minimalist ARE superior, tho.

I'll just say it ... It should be obvious that it would NOT take much to break the tip off of the SPEW ... BUT ... cutlerylover said that he did a bit of torture testing, on this tip, and that he was surprised that the tip did NOT break ... see his video review, on YT.

I should also mention that, as with the Minimalist, the sheath and the included accessories (lanyard, neck-cord, belt-loop) are useful and are excellent (first rate!).

I am going to dock this fine blade ONE STAR, for a total rating of FOUR STARS, STRICTLY BECAUSE OF THE UNDULY HIGH PRICE-TAG ... This knife WOULD be a fair value at $29, delivered.

It would be a steal at anything under $25 delivered. The Minimalist is a GREAT VALUE but the SPEW IS OVER-PRICED, by $10, (IMO).

I did buy it anyway, but I am not as happy, with the pricing, as I was with the Mnimalist. Despite the stiff pricing, the SPEW really does provide a very high degree of utility, in a small and lightweight system that can be worn as a neck-knife, a boot-knife, or on a belt or strap, using the included sheath and accessories. Easily, one of the top-ten neck-knives.

I love the knife because of its size and its razor sharp edge. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the scabbard doesn't function well. I would rather it clip to my belt in a vertical position with a clip.

Extremely sharp and durable. Stays in its case effectively and is easily hidden under any type of shirt. Bought this one for my friend he liked it so much.

Generally in the blade world, what you pay for is what you get. Shell out ten bucks and you'll get a dull, somewhat flimsy blade. In this case though, the CRKT S.P.E.W. far exceeds in quality what the price would seemingly indicate. I carry this as my new everyday carry primary for fixed blades. It's small enough to easily conceal, but you won't feel underprepared in most situations and places. If you need to carry a blade and this simply doesn't measure up, you're in a very hostile environment and I'm glad to not be in your shoes.

I am a collector of edged weapons (swords/knives/spears/axes etc.), one of my favorite brands is C.R.K.T. (soon I hope to start adding custom pieces vs manufactured ones!), I currently own 17 CRKT items, one of which is the "Dragon" kneck knife, when I saw that the S.P.E.W. model was available I had to get one, one of the important attribute of the Wharncliffe style of blade is it's needle sharp point, my "Dragon" tip is so sharp that if you are not fully paying attention it will rick your finger tip! When I received my new knife, I was very exited to see how well it was made & how it felt in the hand! As usual the quality was there, as to handling it was ok for my large hands (6'4 & 270lbs) but I did prefer the "Dragon" model, the S.P.E.W. is quite smaller & lighter. After looking it over for 10 minutes and having both side by side, I finally noticed that the tip on my new knife was not as sharp as it should be! I brought out my jewellery loupe and sure enough the tip had been broken, not by much, maybe 1/32nd of an inch, but enough to be noticed. I have dealt with Amazon for several years and I have not had many issues but those that I did have they took care of them very promptly and always with the attitude to "Make the customer happy", in this instance I decided to keep the knife since it is only going to reside in my collection and I will not be using it, yet they gave me a very nice discount, all within 48hours! Outstanding customer service AND due to their great prices this is where I buy the majority of my blades, I am now ordering a couple more blades (Ka-Bar & CRKT & a Cold Steel spear LOL).
