In 2023 CJRB lifted their game massively and have became a leader in the budget knife scene. We've decided to do a bit of a write up about what CJRB knives got us excited last year and we have a sneak peek of a yet to be released model.
The CJRB Pyrite Wharncliffe, an evolution of the original Pyrite, emerges as a top-tier EDC. Boasting a modified Wharncliffe blade with a stone-washed finish, it excels in diverse tasks. Crafted from high-chromium AR-RPM9 steel, it guarantees durability and corrosion resistance. The 3.11" blade, featuring a flat grind, operates with a smooth button lock mechanism. The steel handle, combining lightweight design and strength, enhances overall usability. The knife, measuring 7.3" open and 4.2" closed, accommodates various situations.

The CJRB Mica epitomises compact excellence in EDC knives. Boasting a 2.36" drop-point blade with sand polish and black PVD coating, it marries style with functionality.

The CJRB Frack commands attention with its robust 3.9" drop-point blade, combining functionality and style with a stone wash and black PVD coating. Crafted from durable AR-RPM9 steel, the blade features a flat grind and button lock mechanism for enhanced utility. The steel handle, steel clip, and ceramic ball bearing pivot ensure reliability. Weighing 140g and measuring 8.9" open and 5" closed, the Frack is a substantial yet manageable everyday carry. CJRB's commitment to quality shines through, delivering a versatile and dependable tool for those seeking a powerful companion in their daily adventures.
Coming soon is the Ray Laconico designed CJRB Prado. This new knife has just entered production (Jan 2024) and should be available early this year.
It has a 3.76" AR-RPM9 drop point blade in either black PVD or sandwashed. Not sure if the final version will be button lock or crossbar lock. I'm betting on it being a crossbar lock.
The initial release looks to be in G10 with black, grey, green and yellow available but you can be sure if it sells ok they will soon after release it in carbon fibre and/or titanium.
