I imagine Arthur Curry’s go-to weapon is his shining trident, but sometimes a small pocket-knife is all you need to get the job done. Launched as a highly limited edition run, the Hirin is designed by Dew Hara, son of eminent blade designer Koji Hara in partnership with CRKT.
Limited to just 500 pieces, the Hirin comes with a drop-point blade made from Böhler M390 stainless steel that folds right into its exquisitely styled 6AL4V titanium handle. The Hirin measures 5.2 inches when closed, opening up to become an 8.6-inch pocket-knife that’s really ideal for most outdoor tasks The blade opens in an ambidextrous fashion, allowing it to open or close either through the left or the right with a comfortable flick, thanks to CRKT’s IKBS ball bearing system. Each knife comes manufactured to perfection in Maniago, Italy, along with an exclusive leather case, designed by Hara too. And while the Hirin may look like something out of Aquaman’s arsenal, CRKT explicitly states that it doesn’t have any superpowers… unless looking spectacular is a superpower.
