Automatic conversion of the popular and long discontinued Lake PAL from CRKT. With a simple push of the button, the blade is deployed and ready for use.

Button locks arenít new. They have been a puzzle that kept knifemakers awake at night. Typically, they have required a complex mix of liner-type springs, top spring bars and a separate pin stop. Then Ron Lake solved the riddle. His patent pending Piston Activated Lock (P.A.L.ô) has just one hardened piston which acts as a stop pin and locking and release mechanism. Study it. At first itís an enigma, then you realize itís the most user-friendly folder imaginable.

The P.A.L.ís open build frame of 420J2 stainless steel has a satin finish, with threaded stainless steel spacers and jigged bone inlays, a first for CRKT. It offers supreme strength and rigidity, with the warmth of traditional materials.

The blade is AUS 8 stainless steel, in a modified clip point shape with a satin finish. It is available with a Razor-Sharp or Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Pointô Serrated edges.

Quiet and Very Smooth
Stuart W.
This knife is tight when open. The spring is string enough to do the job and just a little bit more. If you want a knife with very fast opening and a noisy lock-up (such as a Pro-Tech Godson) this is not the knife you are looking for. Relative to such a knife, this knife's opening is understated. It's smooth action gives reliable lock-up with hardly a sound.
