2014 Burnley Obake Fixed Blade by CRKT

Custom knifemaker Lucas Burnley designed the Obake Fixed Blade knife for Columbia River (CRKT). It's a remarkably thin profile fixed blade Kwaiken style design that's easy to carry and conceal.
It includes a belt loop that can be attached to the sheath. The sturdy polymer sheath has a lanyard with a skull bead on it--a nice touch. The handle is cord wrapped over good looking ray skin for a secure solid grip that feels just right. 
The blade features an etched pattern that further enhances the handsome looks of this knife. Lucas produces similar knives on a custom basis but the CRKT Obake is a super deal! The Obake makes an excellent EDC fixed blade... it's thin, light, nicely made and priced for just about every budget. All of us at OsoGrandeKnives really dig this knife!


The Obake by Lucas Burnley is bold. It's a throwback to a classic Japanese Kwaiken design that's ready to throw down, if trouble turns up. The distinctive blade of this full tang fixed blade knife has a gray titanium nitride finish that is acid etched to give it a unique pattern that will be exclusive to each fortunate owner. The handle has a katana style nylon cord wrap over a black faux ray skin.


The sheath of the Obake is made from glass filled nylon that will give consistent retention even in hot environments. A paracord lanyard on the sheath is designed to attach to your belt loop and keep the sheath in place when you deploy the knife. A skull bead adds a not-so-subtle accent to the paracord lanyard.


This small fixed blade knife comes with a sturdy belt carry system and hardware that attaches to the grommets on the sheath.


The Obake isn't looking for work, but it shows up looking like a boss when it's time to get a job done. Check em' out!
