If you like knives, you're probably going to want to take a look at CRKT's newest everyday carry knife, designed by Ken Onion. It's called the Relay. This is apparently a Snap-on Exclusive.

Here's the lowdown.

The compact size hides a beefy 3.16” drop point blade with a satin finish, or a black finish with Triple Point serrations. When it comes to jobs around the shop, it’s like you’re holding a hand full of dynamite. But you’ll be safe with a locking liner and an IKBS™ ball bearing system that deploys the blade smoothly and effortlessly. Whether you’re at work scraping a gasket or in the field gutting a moose, the Relay™ finishes strong.

A textured, glass-filled nylon handle with tire tread grip has a universal design to accommodate various hand shapes. When you’re around the oil of the garage, this knife will stick with you during a hard day’s work.

With several awards under his belt, Onion creates blades that are as functional at chores as they are at turning heads. The Relay™ is sure to be another knife to add to your list of must-haves.

If you’re looking for an everyday carry that can work hard at the shop and clean up well for a night out, the Relay™ is the one to grab from your Snap-on® Franchisee’s truck.

The Relay Black knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.95
