A far cry from familiar. During his impressively long career, designer Pat Crawford has earned himself a handful of illustrious awards. And throughout it all, one unique knife has stood the test of time: the Offbeat™. Originally designed in 1979, Pat has honed and refined this out-of-the-ordinary pocket knife to perfection. This is ingenuity at its finest.


For anyone that considers themselves a part of the knife community, Pat Crawford is a household name. From his shop in West Memphis, Arkansas, he’s turned out customs that have set a seriously high precedent. That’s not to mention that they’re consistently some of the most popular at CRKT®. Now, he’s back at it with a design from the archives: the Offbeat™.


Before the CNC machine revolutionized the industry, Pat spent an inordinate amount of time cutting handles out of titanium and fitting folders together by hand. So, to expedite the process, he simplified his design. Inspired by a Boy Scout wire handle folder, he invented the Crawford Lockback—an innovation that has proven its worth and is the defining characteristic of the incredibly unique Offbeat™.


The handle is made of stainless steel and features a long, slender cutout along the back with a solid thumb stud at its terminus. As the blade is deployed with its own ambidextrous thumb stud, the cutout slides around the butt end of the blade until it reaches a notch along the backside. Then, the cutout seats snugly into place, effectively locking the blade in the open position. In this position, the harder you grip the handles, the more secure it becomes.


To disengage the Crawford Lockback and close the knife, push up on the thumb stud near the pivot area of the blade and fold it closed—a truly ‘offbeat’ way to unlock a folder. The classic drop point blade features a satin finish, matching the handles, and making for one sleek, sender everyday carry.


Conventional? Nope. Utilitarian? All the way.

    This is a super slim, lightweight and smooth looking knife. I removed the clip to make it even slimmer . Original and effective locking. A unique knife.
