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-ofthe-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 our most popular at CRKT®. Now, he’s back at it with a design from the archives: the Offbeat.
Before the CNC machine revolutionized our 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.
