Simple, Lightweight, and Reliable
Sometimes, you don’t need a toothpick, a pair of tin snips, or toenail scissor–you just need a strong, sharp, reliable cutting blade. The Crater c33T is a streamlined, folding knife with a sturdy, locking blade. Also offering Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, this knife is a true multi-tool. Its durable, 60-percent glass-filled nylon handle is shaped and balanced to sit down comfortably in your hand. And weighing in at just 3.19 ounces, the c33T will rest snugly in your pocket or pack.
The in-handle storage system means you won’t have to carry a sheath, and the knife’s folding carabiner clip makes it easy to attach your knife to a belt loop or the side of your pack, so it’s all the time on hand when you wish to have it. Mariners who keep their tools on lines will have a special appreciation for this clip. And it does double-duty as a bottle-opener. You’ll also opt to secure your knife with the included removable pocket clip. In short, this knife was designed to meet the practical needs of active outdoorsmen, and it delivers.
Premium, US-Made Steel for Performance
A sharp knife is not only more useful than a dull knife, it’s also safer and easier to control. A blade with a durable precision edge lets you make the cuts you wish to have safely and quickly.
Crater Series knives are crafted out of US-made 420HC steel from Crucible Metals. This steel was selected by Leatherman because it provides excellent edge retention, which means your knife stays sharp longer. Plus 420HC is tough, not brittle, and it is corrosion resistant.
Crater Series knives are finished with a hollow grind, the same “premium” grind found on straight razors and some high-end kitchen cutlery. This grind technique creates a natural release when cutting, so materials don’t stick to the knife, giving you a better cutting edge. The knife’s full 2.6-inch blade provides plenty of versatility for cooking up backcountry meals, cutting rope to build the perfect bear hang, or even breaking down boxes to toss in the recycling.
Locking, Drop-Style Blade for Safety
A liner lock lets you secure the blade of your c33T in the open position, so you don’t have to worry about it closing on your hand Even as you cut. This safety feature is especially important when slicing through tough materials like braided nylon rope. Having a liner lock instead of a traditional lockback system makes the c33T easier to open with one hand. It also ensures that it’s easy to unlock the blade and close the knife.
Leatherman’s registered Blade Launcher technology makes opening this Crater Series knife even easier. With the Blade Launcher, you simply engage a conveniently placed mechanism to open your knife. A standard thumb stud contributes to the simplicity of one-handed operation, too.
Leatherman uses blades shaped in a drop-style for all their c33 knives because they fit nicely in the handle of your knife when not in use. Plus, a drop-style blade is stronger than a clip point blade, which you might see on other pocket knives.
When it is time to sharpen your knife, you can appreciate that Leatherman knives can be re-sharpened using standard methods. There are lots of ways to maintain a sharp blade, so you should be able to find one that works well for you. Sharpening stones, round files, and special kits (not included) can help ensure long-lasting performance.
About Leatherman: Time-Tested Survival Tools
The original Pocket Survival Tool, devised by mechanical engineer Tim Leatherman, hit the market in 1983. By 1993, Leatherman was selling more than one million tools a year. In the blockbuster movie “Speed,” Keanu Reeves used a Leatherman to save the passengers on a doomed bus. Even MacGyver has been seen with one of these trusty tools. But their best reviews come from everyday people. The Leatherman survival tool is a mainstay of travelers, sailors, fishermen, hunters, backpackers, and scouts.
The simple, lightweight Crater Series knives draw on Leatherman’s legacy. Even as the c33T knife doesn’t feature the signature Leatherman pliers design, it is available in several multi-tool variations. If you work with rope or clean fish steadily, you might enjoy the versatility offered by the c33Tx, which has a combination straight and serrated blade. Similarly, Leatherman offers the c33 for those who prefer a knife without a blade launcher, and the c33B, a multi-knife with an integrated bit driver.
All Leatherman tools, including the c33T Straight Blade Knife, are backed by a 25-year warranty.

What’s in the Box
c33T Straight blade knife
FEATURING 4 TOOLS: 420HC Blade, Carabiner/Bottle Opener, Phillips Screwdriver, 1/4″ Flat Screwdriver.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: The Crater C33T features a blade crafted from 420HC, a high-carbon stainless steel that is corrosion resistant and can be easily maintained. The handle is constructed from glass filled nylon which allows for excellent durability without adding significant weight. The glass-filled nylon handle is so strong that an inner steel frame is not required, thereby reducing weight for a lighter every day carry.
LOCKING BLADE WITH LOCKING LINER MECHANISM: The knife blade on the Crater C33 features a locking liner mechanism that holds it safely in place when fully deployed. The blade must be manually unlocked to fold it away which allows for a much safer user experience.
BLADE LAUNCHER TECHNOLOGY: The Blade Launcher is a finger placement pad located at the pivot point on the spine of the knife. By placing an index finger on the pad and pulling down sharply, the user can quickly and safely deploy the knife for use. There are no springs in this operation, so it is not classified as “assisted opening.”
