This knife is beast! By far the best value knife I've owned in years. Don't think about it. Just buy it!
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.
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.
