CRKT Drifter 6450K

In Depth Look

A basic pocket knife, because really, what more do you need? The CRKT Drifter is an affordable, no-nonsense, folding pocket knife that exists for one reason: to get the job done.

A simple knife that is easy to open and use, the Drifter features black G10 handle scales with a textured grip. A stainless steel drop point blade in gray titanium nitride finish and a low profile pocket clip round out the offering. The knife features an InterFrame build with stainless steel liners and a locking liner for safety.

If you are looking for an everyday carry knife that performs day in and day out that you don’t need have to feel guilty about beating up a bit, the CRKT Drifter is for you.

The Drifter also makes a great logo knife. Affordability and large flat areas on the blade and frame are suitable for logo imprinting. High-quality knives that are priced low enough to purchase in quantity, and have flat areas that are perfect for a 'Company Billboard' imprinting by laser or silk screen. You could also take it to your local trophy house for personalized engraving.

The CRKT Drifter is available in plain edge (6450K) and Triple-Point Serration edge (6460K) versions.

Also Available in the Drifter series:

CRKT Drifter w/Triple Point Serrations (6460K)

This Chinese knife has both well-fit parts and quality materials.

The steel liners are actually sunk into the inner side of the fiberglass (G10) handle slabs, compared to the simple sandwiched construction of many similar knives which leaves the liner visible all around and tends to make the handle thicker than necessary.

The spacers between the handle halves and the blade+washers are both well-matched to each other's thickness. I occasionally see knives, sometimes even from expensive brands, with handles, washers, and spacers which just aren't the right thickness, causing the blade to wiggle or push off-center. This knife's blade is perfectly straight and solid in both the opened and closed positions.

The parts are all shaped with great accuracy. The internal cutouts inside the G10 handle slabs are perfectly ground for the thickness of the steel liners. The blade is beveled neatly on both sides, with a sharp edge right out of the box. No lop-sided grinds.

The steel is a newer Chinese "mystery steel" which is actually really good. The hardness rating (as per the manufacturer) is 58-59 HRC, which is the same as many higher-priced Japanese or US knives, and performance so far is backing that up.

The blade has an interesting gray Titanium Nitride finish. This is an actual coating of a durable substance, NOT just a sand-blasted texture used by many other knives. Sand-blasted (or "bead blasted") textures actually increase the possibility of rust, while a titanium nitride coating reduces it (though it probably isn't necessary).

The thumb stud works very well. It has layered concentric ridges, which results in both smoother rotation under your thumb and a good grip.

I would just like to start off by saying that this knife shipped and arrived very fast! I ordered it on Feb 4, 2014 and it arrived at the post office on Feb 6, 2014. WOW! Amazon prime's not kidding when they say two day shipping. Keep in mind that this package shipped all the way from Delaware to my home in Hawaii, that is completely across the country, in two days! Kudos to Amazon for the amazing shipping speed.

I bought this knife as an EDC. For a few years now, I've been carrying an Ontario RAT I. The RAT is literally the best 30 bucks i've ever spent in my life. If you want a larger utility knife of great quality I suggest checking out the RAT. It is an excellent blade for the price and one that has served me well (unfortunately, I can't find it). I figured the RAT may be a little too big for EDC and I ought to get something a little smaller. Chances are that if you are reading this review you are in the market for an affordable EDC and are considering other options. Some other products to consider that are about the same size and price are: Ontario RAT model II, Kershaw Skyline, and ESEE Zancudo. This range of knives tends to be tricky waters to navigate through. You have the possibility of receiving an excellent knife that is worth more than what you payed for or you could possibly receive absolute crap. This knife definitely falls into the former category!

Blade: the blade is very attractive. It is simple and elegant. As is evident in the pictures, you can see that the blade has a small recurve in it towards the rear. It is very slight and barely noticeable. It arrived paper-shredding sharp. Some of the other reviewers complained about theirs being dull. I think it is really a matter of luck. If you're lucky, you'll receive a sharp one.

For around $20 this knife was a good purchase. It's no Benchmade, but I'm personally not big into spending over $100 on a knife. They tend to get lost, broken, etc. There are a lot of positive features on the Drifter, including nice thumb studs, an attractive grey finish on the blade, and a lightweight G10 composite handle. The liner lock is simple but adequate. Personally I don't like CRKT's auto LAWKS mechanism anyways, it works about half the time, and the Drifter doesn't need it. Blade also has a nice thickness to it, although mine wasn't very sharp when I first received it. I'm not very pleased with the pocket clip, it's too tight and short, unlike the nice one on the M16 series. Overall it's a good multipurpose knife, with a (limited) capacity as a defensive tool.

The CRKT drifter is a great little knife that provides a low cost option for a locking EDC blade.
The Good: It has a keen edge and holds it fairly well. It is quite light and unobtrusive. The drifter has a 3 inch blade which is large enough for most daily tasks and small enough to be legal in most areas. The pocket clip is sturdy and holds the knife well.
The Bad: The blade steel is prone to rusting if it is exposed to sweat or other moisture. The pocket clip is not adjustable and you are stuck with tip down carry. The slight recurve blade can make sharpening a bit more challenging.

This is my first crkt blade, I typically stick to ka-bar and sog products, but this has opened my eyes to crkt. This knife has been awesome. Put a nice razor edge on it and it holds nicely. The G-10 handle is outstanding. It is so lightweight which is perfect for EDC. The straight edge blade is awesome and the color of it is neat as well, very attractive. Additionally no blade play. The size is just perfect for stashing in your back pocket with it's awesomely tight clip. I could not be happier. I gave up an expensive kershaw assisted opening for this and it was worth it. I recently bought another crkt blade, the m-1610z which is also a small EDC knife because I wanted another EDC equipped with a tanto blade and serrations. Both of these knives are under $20 so just buy them, don't waste any more time! Plus, a knife collection is a great thing to have!
