Russ Kommer is a bright young custom knife maker who was based in Anchorage, Alaska, for many years. Conditions there are rugged, either from the climate or the work folks are doing. He thought a knife that was easy to grip and hard to lose would be a big hit, and since he made the first Bear Claw, he hasn't been able to meet the demand. It seems that every parachutist, bush pilot and commercial fisherman who sees one, wants one.
As a result, Russ and CRKT teamed up to make the production Bear Claw, a cutting machine that, thanks to the generous size finger hole, acts just like an extension of your hand. It is the perfect emergency cutting tool for anyone who needs to quickly cut rope, webbing or netting, especially if their life is going to depend on it.
The Bear Claw 2510ER is a professional model which has a blunt tip and serrated edge, making it perfect for seat belt removal during emergency rescues and extrication from lines or nets in the water. The blade is full-tang, taper-ground AUS 4 stainless steel with a polished finish to resist corrosion. Friction grooves are placed on the blade spine, coil and near the tip for maximum blade control and safety. The contoured high visibility orange Zytel handle fills the hand neatly. The Bear Claw weighs in at a lightweight but stout 3.4 oz.
We developed one of our CRKT trademark high-tech sheaths for the Bear Claw that's only 1.1 oz. of tough, durable, injection-moulded Zytel. It allows efficient quick release of the knifeâ€”just thumb push against the sheath to release smoothly and quietlyâ€”or give a sharp pull.
It features moulded-in threaded fittings for attachment of the wide black stainless steel Teflon-plated pocket clip at either end, using the Torx tool and screws provided. The sheath also has a total of seven lanyard holes and belting slots to permit a variety of carry positions, and a lanyard is provided.
