CRKT® Forged By War™ Program Supports Returning Veterans and Their Charities of Choice.
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT® with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
To help work through their challenges, they had been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wish they had available to them in the battlefield.
CRKT® cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016 we’re honored to announce the launch of the Forged By War™ program.
These are mission ready tools, designed by warriors, with 10% of the CRKT® net profits of the program donated to the veterans’ charity of choice.
Mission ready tools that are…Forged By War™.
The first three tools we are proud to announce include the new Clever Girl™, designed by Austin McGlaun of Columbus, Georgia. This fixed blade tactical knife features a black, powder coated upswept blade with a tough, injection molded, glass-reinforced nylon handle that sits comfortably in a sheath that’s MOLLE-compatible for multiple carry options. It aligns with Austin’s philosophy that in a fight you want something you can grab quickly, use if necessary, and then go home to your family. Austin’s charity is The Green Beret Foundation.
