Whether you're tackling a technical ascent on a remote peak or working on a project in the garage, this precision-crafted Crater Series knife is packed with design elements that help you get important jobs done.
Simple, Lightweight, and Reliable
Sometimes, you don't need a toothpick, a pair of tin snips, or toenail scissor--you just need a strong, sharp, reliable cutting blade. The Crater c33 is a streamlined, folding knife with a sturdy, locking blade. Its durable, 60-percent glass-filled nylon handle is shaped and balanced to sit comfortably in your hand. And weighing in at just 2.36 ounces, the c33 will rest snugly in your pocket or pack.
The in-handle storage system means you won't have to carry a sheath, and the knife's folding carabiner clip makes it easy to attach your knife to a belt loop or the side of your pack, so it's always on hand when you need it. Mariners who keep their tools on lines will have a special appreciation for this clip. And it does double-duty as a bottle-opener. You can also opt to secure your knife with the included removable pocket clip. In short, this knife was designed to meet the practical needs of active outdoorsmen, and it delivers.
Premium, US-Made Steel for Performance
A sharp knife is not only more useful than a dull knife, it's also safer and easier to control. A blade with a durable precision edge lets you make the cuts you want safely and quickly.
Crater Series knives are crafted out of US-made 420HC steel from Crucible Metals. This steel was selected by Leatherman because it provides excellent edge retention, which means your knife stays sharp longer. Plus 420HC is tough, not brittle, and it is corrosion resistant.
Crater Series knives are finished with a hollow grind, the same "premium" grind found on straight razors and some high-end kitchen cutlery. This grind technique creates a natural release when cutting, so materials don't stick to the knife, giving you a better cutting edge. The knife's full 2.6-inch blade provides plenty of versatility for cooking up backcountry meals, cutting rope to build the perfect bear hang, or even breaking down boxes to toss in the recycling.
Locking, Drop-Style Blade for Safety
A liner lock lets you secure the blade of your c33 in the open position, so you don't have to worry about it closing on your hand while you cut. This safety feature is especially important when slicing through tough materials like braided nylon rope. Having a liner lock instead of a traditional lockback system makes the c33 easier to open with one hand. It also ensures that it's easy to unlock the blade and close the knife. A conveniently placed thumb stud contributes to the ease of one-handed operation, too.
Leatherman uses blades shaped in a drop-style for all their c33 knives because they fit nicely in the handle of your knife when not in use. Plus, a drop-style blade is stronger than a clip point blade, which you might see on other pocket knives.
When it is time to sharpen your knife, you'll appreciate that Leatherman knives can be re-sharpened using standard methods. There are many ways to maintain a sharp blade, so you should be able to find one that works well for you. Sharpening stones, round files, and special kits (not included) can help ensure long-lasting performance.
