An Every Day Carry (EDC) knife is a matter of personal choice. The right knife to have with you at all times must combine durability and practicality with design quality and attention to detail. The SNAG SM from Krudo Knives delivers in every area that an EDC should.

As with all Krudo Knives, the SNAG SM folder is designed by Louis Krudo, who has made a name for himself in the knife industry for designing unique knives that draw on his artistic talent and skills in the martial arts. The SNAG SM is the latest addition to the SNAG line of knives that started in 2008 with the original SNAG.

It brings everything a person wants in an EDC knife, all in one ergonomic, sleek package. Krudo Knives expects to have the new blade ready for sale in May 2023.

Louis Krudo oversees every aspect of Krudo Knives from Cave Creek, Arizona. He is relentless in his pursuit of perfection with his knives – he even says he is “verging on OCD” – and the result are one-of-a-kind knives. The SNAG SM is no exception.

SNAG SM Features

The SNAG SM is a legacy design that remains true to Louis Krudo’s original SNAG folder that he designed more than two decades ago. The original SNAG folder, which went into production in 2008, remains a popular selection in the Krudo Knives product lineup.

Louis Krudo designed the knife during the turbulent times after 2020. He called this time of transition an era that has shown people need to remain more vigilant than ever. The SNAG SM evokes that approach to life.

The knife features a lightning fast out of pocket deployment no matter what hand you use. It’s a self-defense tool as well as a practical blade for jobs that need to get done on a daily basis. It evokes the early designs of the original SNAG folder, but with new features born of the years of experience Louis Krudo has acquired in the years since he first put the SNAG idea down on paper.

SNAG SM offers a unique EDC that will meet the needs of anyone looking for a one-of-of-kind blade to carry. The new SNAG SM carries on the tradition of Krudo Knives SNAG line of blades, but with a look and features all its own.
