CRKT Humdinger Knife

New fixed blade hunting knife inspired by Alaskan bear hunts

CRKT has released the [Humdinger]( humdinger.html) fixed blade hunting knife. Designed by Ken Onion of Kaneohe, Hawaii, its big-belly blade design, beefy handle, and all-black aesthetic is as rugged as the Alaskan backcountry it was built for.

Several years ago, Ken Onion ventured north for a bear hunt on America’s last frontier. The Humdinger is the one he wished would have existed when he was elbow-deep field dressing the grizzly his team took down. And with a strong black oxide finish, this 6” blade, designed for long, sweeping motions, will break down your big game and get it straight to your freezer.

A grippy thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) handle provides a firm grip even if you find yourself gutting your game in the pouring rain. Once the job is done, a quick wipe will do, then securely back into the polypropylene sheath it goes.

The Humdinger is built with an extremely simple design. Fewer components directly translate to a stronger, more efficient knife. There’s no need for frills or aesthetics when you’re hundreds of miles from anywhere. The Humdinger manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $89.99.
