CR2010N: Crawford/Kasper Dragon
Columbia River

Bob Kasper, the late writer and combat instructor, designed the basic outline of the C/K Dragon after ten years of study into the principles of extreme in-close fighting developed by Dr. Gordon Eric Perrigard over fifty years ago. These techniques use automatic conditioned reflexes with minimal body movement. The knife is considered as part of the hand.

Bob sent his sketch to award-winning custom knifemakers Pat and Wes Crawford of Crawford Knives in West Memphis, Arkansas, who developed the handle scales. As Pat Crawford says, "This knife is all business. I hope it will become a part of Bob's legacy to the professional martial arts community."

Like its namesake, the C/K Dragon bites (with the tapered tip), claws (with the long Wharncliffe cutting edge), and strikes (with the pommel) its adversary. We at CRKT have engineered our production model to be as close as possible to the Crawford custom Dragon, which has proven popular with law enforcement and military operators.

The 4.50" full tang blade has a tapered Wharncliffe grind for great penetrating power. It is made of exceptionally tough 9Cr18MoV high-chromium stainless steel to stand up to the worst abuse.

The handle features a deep finger choil and textured zytel scales with deep diagonal grooves for optimum grip with gloved hands and under wet conditions, aided by deep friction grooves at the thumb. At the pommel, a pointed metal hammer tip is useful for window breaking and other tactical impact needs.

True to Bob Kasper's concept, this is a knife with perfect balance that truly feels like part of your hand. Mass is centered at the palm, and the tapered blade tip makes the Dragon feel like a much smaller knife.

Despite its tactical intentions, we have found that thanks to its weight, balance, grip and long precision cutting edge, the Dragon makes a very functional and versatile knife in the shop, too. Enter the C/K Dragon.

Nice Knife/Questionable Sheath
I enjoy the knife itself, however...The Kydex Scabbord leave a lot to be desired. The knife literally "rattles" around when sheathed- VERY loose fitting (and annoying). I suppose that the Kydex slabs are heat-molded to a die, so there should be a snug fit to the knife-NOT the case...I would hesitate to purchase another one for this reason.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Sheath Sux
The knife is a great self defense blade I'd rate 4 stars for the price, the handle is about 1 finger width too short to be 5 stars... but the sheath totally sux and is useless without strapping it to something. Would a beltclip be too much to ask for?

Excellent item
I haven't had a chance yet to use this knife but it came well packaged. It has a very nice balance to it and a firm locking into the kydex sheath. Out of the box, it is razor sharp and fits my hand perfectly (medium size hands). It will be a frequent companion for me.
