Customer Reviews

Ummm, pretty dang nice.
Kevin H. on Jan 4, 2021

Nice knife! This is my third version of this knife (standard silver, jade G10) and now this one. The micarta is much better than I thought and I like it alot. Looks much better in person and I highly recommend it.

My Favorite Squid
Antonio M. on Jan 14, 2021

I am a fan of the Squid. I have the basic steel model, the Jade G10 version, and now this version. This one is both the nicest looking and best one of the three. It's a smooth opener, and the Micarta scale is very nice. I love it. Good job.

my first squid, first bhq exclusive, and first crkt in a year.
Andre m. on Jan 15, 2021

I never really liked crkt for their material choice but loved their designs. this changes everything. beautiful micarta show side, d2 smoke washed blade and lock side, and a really nice deep carry pocket clip. And a cherry on top? they switched out the crappy Teflon washers for some bronze of some sort, greatly improving the action of this little guy. the spear point blade came with a nice mirror edge which was decently sharp. the gimping along the beginning of the spine is widely spaced, but still functional. I can get all 4 fingers on there if I squeeze. this is (this particular one) an amazing urban EDC option and fixes all the flaws of the original squid.

The Squid to get!
Ryan F. on Mar 24, 2021

I typically carry a small knife in the fifth pocket of my jeans. Usually a Spyderco Dragonfly or similar. The CRKT Squid has similar dimensions as the Spyderco Dragonfly but its weight prevented me from purchasing. Until this exclusive came along, which nailed it. This version drops a full ounce over the standard Squid with a micarta show scale. And adds an excellent D2 steel blade. The smokewash finish is great looking, will likely hide scratches, and potentially prevent corrosion. Fit, finish, and action are great. Very minor complaints: the micarta is more slick than I expected and I am not used to the feel of a thumb stud in said fifth pocket. Please make a D2 micarta Squid flipper next!

My first Squid

This knife is beautiful. Compact, love the micarta scale and light weight. Feels great in the hand. Becoming a big fan of CRKT.

Nice little knife
Larry S. on Jan 13, 2021

Came super sharp. The size is perfect for carrying in your fith pocket. It will make a great secondary or even primary carry. The only thing that disappointed me a little is that the miicarta isn't as textured as I would like. However, it still looks great

hard to open
todd a. on Mar 20, 2021

nice looking knife but thumb studs too hard to open easily. have to sharpen before first use.
