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 svelte 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.

Top Customer Reviews
My philosophy of use for this knife was as a CCW fixed blade as a backup to my sidearm. In that role, I do NOT use it for cutting boxes, opening mail, removing tags from clothes, etc. I use my Gerber multi-tool for that.
To carry, I took off the long piece of paracord that was included by the seller as a way of hanging around the neck. I then repositioned the belt clip so that the knife would be carried horizontally on my belt, on the right side of the buckle, blade edge facing down with the handle facing right. After some drills, including practice draws when right hand is not available (say, fighting to control the firearm), I’m able to draw it easily and engage with my left hand. I can also draw right handed if needed, though the knife is in then in an ‘icepick’ grip.
Quality of sheath:
While configuring how the knife would be carried I came across my major gripe with the sheath. The text says that you can move the belt clip into different configurations by swapping out where it’s screwed into the sheath itself. This is mostly true. However, on the top of the sheath, the closest two holes are NOT the same distance apart as all the other holes are. I’m fairly sure this is a manufacturing error. Because of this, when carrying horizontally you can’t, right out of the box, attach the clips closest to the mouth of the sheath. It still works, but it isn’t as close as I would like to the belt. I will be fixing this with a drill press. I’m dinging this one star for this.
Quality of blade:
Don’t have much here. I’m no expert and I can’t do long posts on types of steel, etc. However, what cutting I have done tells me that this blade is wicked sharp. I even managed to shave some of my whiskers.
My hands are bigger than the handle, as it will be for pretty much everyone. However the blade is very controllable and comfortable in my hands. The woven piece of thin cord at the end of the handle helps a lot with this, as well as helping with feeling when going to grip to draw.
Overall, it works well for me.
That fragile looking tip is the only reason for knocking off a star. I'd like too see this entire blade just a tad thicker. Still, I'm very much satisfied with this little gem. Inexpensive. Light. Easy to conceal. Surely a nasty little blade that I'd hate to be on the other end of. I call it a One Trick Pony but, a very good one. Well done CRKT and Mr Folts!
