Meet TRAK: A mini, ultra-lightweight titanium utility knife designed to be worn in the toughest environments the world over.
TRAK is a patent pending, titanium knife designed to be used by anyone, anywhere, regardless of conditions or environment. TRAK was originally created to be used as a back up dive knife for commercial divers entangled in fishing lines. TRAK has been adopted by runners due to it being lightweight, easy to carry, and rust proof. The new TRAK was born. At less than 1/2 oz, TRAK is the perfect choice for individuals with an active lifestyle that need an ultra lightweight knife. TRAK is the perfect knife for those running alone, biking, hiking, camping or just walking your dog. Regardless of the environment, TRAK can handle it! We found that TRAK not only came in handy in a marine environment, but found ourselves wearing it on our daily runs. With TRAK, you're never alone.
What makes TRAK unique is that you place your index finger in the retention hole and wrap you thumb and middle finger around it. This makes dropping or having TRAK slip out of your hands virtually impossible. Easy to wear around your neck with our neck sheath set-up, carry it on your keys, or zip tie it to your gear, purse, or backpack.
TRAK is made from military grade titanium (6AL4V), which is the same material used in professional touring bikes, aviation, race cars, and even the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The benefit of titanium is it's ultra-light weight, twice as strong as its equivalent in steel, rust proof, corrosion proof, and non ferrous (no iron). Titanium is even used in surgical implants for its harmonizing factor with the human body.
TRAK is 100% hand crafted in the USA. The titanium is sourced in California and then sent to Texas where the blanks are cut out on a waterjet machine. The raw TRAK cut-outs are then sent to our shop in Boston, MA where the cutting edge is hand ground. From there we apply the following finishing treatments: stonewashing, bead blasting, color anodizing, final edge sharpening, tungsten carbide welded to edges, and hand stamped logos. TRAK will be offered in two different sizes. We understand that one tool cannot fit everyone so we're offering two sizes: Medium and Large.
We then move on to the Kydex thermoplastic retention sheaths, which are also made one at a time, by hand. TRAK comes with a thermoplastic Kydex sheath. This material is heated until soft and pliable and then press formed around TRAK. Once cooled, Kydex will fit your knife like a custom made glove. Kydex is waterproof, lightweight, retains its shape better than leather, and can last a lifetime. The retention sheath has two eyelets at top, which allows you to attach a neck lanyard or key ring. You can also attach TRAK to a backpack, runner's arm band, belt, or anywhere you need it handy.
TRAK is designed to fit your hand like a glove. When you insert your index finger into the retention hole, the remaining fingers wrap around TRAK comfortably in their own finger holds. This gives you a very secure, no slip grip. As long as you keep your hand closed, TRAK will not fall out!
