CRKT Lake 111

The CRKT Lake 111 is designed by Ron Lake, who has been called "the father of the modern folding knife" and literally co-authored the book on them in 1988. In this case, we believe he has perfected the lockback folder. Ron's breakthrough is his patented Lock Back Safety (L.B.S.) which allows the user to slide the small button forward to lock the blade both in the open and closed positions. When locked open, it is virtually impossible to accidentally release the blade even during vigorous cutting tasks.
