Knife is great, I have 3 others for emergency kits. Knife is solid, came fairly sharp out of the box (I reprofiled the edge though - personal preference), no play side to side or front to back. My only complaint is that you cannot loosen the blade screw. It was assembled so tight that I would have to strip the screw to try and remove it. My other three were not like that. For $20 bucks you can't complain though. Will toss it in a BOB but could not use it in a tactical situation due to blade deployment is not fast. If this knife is used and starts to get blade play it could not be tightened for reduce it. I almost returned it due to this, but like I said, for $20 I can't complain. CRKT builds great knives at a good price point. Would recommend this knife to others.
A good solid EDC knife. For someone like me, who thinks bigger is better this knife is perfect. Holds an edge and sharpens easily. A real good work knife.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is my favorite daily carry bust out of the car if necessary or otherwise defend yourself if required purchase. Do not hesitate to pick one of these brilliantly thought-out pocket knifes.
Mine cost $35.00 several years ago. My second favorite daily carry is a Spyderco Military, $200.00 and also an excellent knife. Would not try to break out of a car with one though.
The Crawford Kasper CRKT incorporates generations of thought about design and construction. Never seen any to equal it.
This is one of the best folders for any amount of money! I've had mine for four years now and it has been great. I work construction and have used (abused) this blade for every task imaginable. It is still as solid as the day I bought it. I sharpen it probably about twice a month (super easy). Lock this thing open and it feels as solid as a fixed blade. I recommend this knife to anyone who may be looking for a good blade for actual tasksnot just looking cool and pretty.
