CR1050K: Fire Spark

Columbia River Knife & Tool

The CRKT Fire Spark combines everything we know about folders, including Fire Safe and OutBurst assisted opening, and the LAWKS safety.

At Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT), our goal in producing this folder is to combine all of our recent technological advances in one heavy-duty tactical folder. We call it the Fire Spark, and it is primarily intended for law enforcement and military professionals, although it also makes a fine general-purpose sport and work folder for those who want to carry a large knife.

The innovative construction starts with our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking. We add 6061 aluminum scales, which are CNC machined to receive black textured G10 inlays. The handle is a full 4.75” long to be comfortable for those with large hands, or when wearing gloves, and features four finger choils to give optimum grip. The cross section is flat enough for in-pocket carry. Finally, there is a strong stainless steel back spacer that extends to the butt, which culminates in a “skull cracker” pointed tip. The back spacer is relieved to allow a double lanyard loop to be cut in the stainless steel liners.

The blade on the Fire Spark is a modified tactical spear point design with a Razor-Sharp edge, high hollow grind and swedged top edge for penetration. Blade steel is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel.

Two models are available. The Tactical 1050K is finished in nonreflective black oxide on blade, frame, three-position stainless steel clip, and hardware. We also offer the Sport 1050, which has a high satin blade finish, silver anodized frames, and polished three-position stainless steel clip.

We have combined our patented OutBurst assisted opening with our patent-pending1 Fire Safe mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the thumb stud is pressed and nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. The system assures fast opening action even in cold weather and when wearing gloves.

Finally, to maintain lockup in high-stress situations, we’ve incorporated the patented2 LAWKS safety, which effectively converts the folder into a virtual fixed blade when the LAWKS lever is pressed forward.

The Fire Spark is the most fully featured tactical folder we have ever offered, and it is also a great value.


  • The OutBurst assisted opening mechanism cannot be actuated until you rotate the Fire Safe disk and nudge it.
  • The butt features a lanyard loop and stainless steel back spacer ending in a pointed “skull cracker” tip.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Great build quality. Can be difficult to open
It is much harder to open than any other auto or assisted opening knife that I have had. There is a small safety that needs to be pushed at the right angle until you feel or hear a faint click then you keep pushing in and out for the blade to open. If not the right angle and if no ‘click’ you can push forever and the knife won’t open. If the safety was a little bigger it would be easier to open and you wouldn’t end up with a divot in your thumb. Aside from that, good blade shape and good handle feel. Like the liner lock. After about 200 tries and about 100 openings I can open it most of the time somewhat quickly. I bought it because of the apparent construction quality. A safety on a knife seems silly. I don’t buy sidearms with safety’s either
