The Companion was born out of a request from the DOD special missions community for a smaller and more concealable version of Bob Kasper's renowned KSK utility/fighter hybrid. Originally produced for Bob by custom knifemaker Al Polkowski and later by Pat and Wes Crawford, the Companion remains the concealed carry knife of choice for discerning users worldwide.
Designed to provide superb control both during the draw and in use, the Companion's 3D sculpted handle is an ergonomic work of art. Control during the draw means proper indexing from the initial grip, through unsheathing, to guard or contact. The low-profile handle features a single finger groove, palm swell, pommel flare, and a pinkie hook which locks the knife into the hand and eliminates indexing problems.
A modified Persian-style S30V blade featuring a large-bellied, recurved primary edge and an unsharpened swedge, the Companion's wide, aggressive blade profile provides excellent tip alignment in both forward and reverse grip.
A perfect companion to AIWB (appendix inside-the-waistband) pistol carry, the Companion is designed to be carried inside the waistband with a rearward cant along the pelvic crease. It disappears against your body and is comfortable and ambidextrously accessible even when seated.
Pat has been building knives since 1972. He became a member of the Knifemakers Guild in 1973 and never looked back. Pat was of the first to create skeletonized handles and further elevate his work with the use of titanium. He raised his son Wes to also build knives and continue the work Pat has so tirelessly championed.
