We take a look at the CRKT Tuition knife with Veff™ Serrations combination edge. The knife was designed by Gerry McGinnis who has been making knives since his was 15. The now 20 something McGinnis has brought a nice offering to those who need a good working knife for outdoors.

The Tuition is not just any knife; it is well design and has excellent attention to detail. First the handle has a nice black and green pattern that is hard to see in photos but in person pop out at you. The front part of knife has rainbow effect while the back has two shades of green.

The 2.88" blade is made of stainless steel and has a high hollow grind for fast cutting. The Tuition can be open one handed using the flipper. Simply push down on the back metal piece and the blade flips out. Once the blade is out the metal piece will also act a blade guard preventing from accidental closing. The knife comes in two blade types, either Razor Edge or Combination Edge. The Combination Edge or Veff™ Serrations provides faster cutting of rope, twine, netting, and vegetation.

The CRKT Tuition by Gerry McGinnis is definitely worth the price. Out of the entire knife collections of CRKT offers this one immediately pop out at me. And I'm glad I chose this knife. It has tons of features and design that you will want in a knife.
