Designed by Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, the CRKT Buku is a small and handy version of the legendary Nepalese Kukri blade.
Lucas wanted the Buku to have the same powerful disposition as its larger cousin but make it available in a more compact size.
At first glance the CRKT Buku appears to be light and thin. But once open, this folder is ready to pick on jobs more than twice its size with a wide and strong 3.75" oversized 8Cr13Mov steel blade.
This is made possible by a frame lock mechanism with heavy contouring made even beefier by the addition of a steel over-travel tab. Blade grind is flat with plain edge and satin finish. The CRKT Buku comes with a 2Cr13 Stainless Steel handle, satin finished and equipped with a deep carry pocket clip (tip up carry). Overall lenght is 8.3 inches, weight is 7.7 ounces, suggested retail price is 69.99 USD.
