Customer Reviews

Crkt sketch desert warrior
Brian H. on Jun 19, 2021

I was skeptical ordering a knife made in china. But it was on sale and the right size to edc. I am very impressed with the quality of this knife. No movement in lock position. Sturdy lock. Very sharp. Edge retention is very good. I think i found my favorite knife for under 50 bucks. Well done CRKT.

Solid EDC (that looks good too)

CRKT continues to bring great knives to market in 2020. My latest purchase is the Sketch Desert Warrior. It came super sharp out of the box. Combine that with good fit/finish, a weight under 3 ounces and you have an easy to carry blade to take on most daily cutting tasks.

Sharp, very sharp!
Rene d. on Sep 10, 2020

Perfect small sized folder. The ergo will fit a smaller to medium size hands which I fit in that category. The deployment is a simple thumb opening via the blade hole. The fit and finish are good and the blade lines up nicely in the center. The best thing about this affordable knife is how sharp it is. The thin blade and grind make this such an excellent slicer!

Nice configuration
Daniel H. on Sep 3, 2020

Knife came centered and razor sharp out of the box with a smooth opening action and a “one wiggle” close. Ergos are okay but not great, although the build quality is really good with just one down side, you can spydie-flick open with your left hand but that’s about it. There’s very little access to open frame side up so lefties be ware.

Looks great, but falls short overall
Todd M. on Aug 5, 2021

I wanted to love this knife. Aesthetically, it is very pleasing with green G-10 scales with copper blade and accents. The knife shipped with D2 steel that was razor sharp and that is not an exaggeration, I mean insanely sharp. The knife is made in China, but the blade came centered and the action is nice. The Wharncliffe blade is great for a multitude of tasks and in my opinion makes a great everyday carry blade type. Ergonomically it fits in the hand just perfect for me with no interference from the pocket clip, but the jimping on the back of the blade would be better if it was just slightly longer. For me the biggest downfall is the thumb hole. To keep the profile of the blade and not cut out any more of the scales they made the thumb hole impossible to access reliably. I by no means have large hands and I must really dig my thumb in, which is both uncomfortable and annoying. In fact, the only way I can deploy the blade reliably is by digging my thumb in and pinching the spine with my middle finger, which is just okay. If you plan on buying for looks then sure, but if you are looking for a 50$ knife that is great for everyday carry, I suggest looking elsewhere.

Hard to open
Louie D. on Sep 11, 2020

I like the look of this knife and it cuts really well, but I can't say that I'm a fan of the action. It has ball bearings, but is still pretty stiff to open. I think that will improve over time and it seems to have gotten a little better already. However, the real issue for me is the small, oval shaped opening. Unlike Spyderco's thumb holes, this one is a bit too small and difficult for my thumb to get purchase, which makes it very hard to open with one hand. I'll give it a little more time, but this one may need to go back.

james O. on Sep 3, 2021

Looks nice but the deployment sucks because it is too hard to open because the hole is too small and not placed far enough out. The action also sucks due to gritty Teflon washer. Truly disappointed.
