Description

Description

Based on Lucas Burnley's popular compact custom knife, the Squid is bound to be a hit, not just because of its accessibility, but also for the value and performance factors that CRKT brings to the table. This model has a black stonewash finished handle and blade. The stainless steel handle sports a strong frame lock and a low profile pocket clip. Thumb studs are utilized to deploy the spear point blade, which has jimping/grooves for added grip.

This knife is awesome. I donít have any hot spots while holding it as all the corners are nice and smoothed. Probably one of the best knives to come out of CRKT
Great EDC knife, especially for non-knife people

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. She likes the knife because it's slim, unobtrusive and looks non-threatening. It cuts well and has a solid lockup. It can be deployed one-handed, however due to it's size, some folks may have issues doing so but that may vary person to person. I liked the squid so much that I may buy one for myself as a backup to my main edc knife. For the price, I highly recommend it.
A good one

This knife is pretty great. It's nice and solid an feels good in my small hands. I keep it on me when I go jogging since it's so small. My only complaint is how hard it is to flip the blade out. It's not a pain but it would be nice to be able to flick it out easily. Other than that I think this is a rad knife.

Thereís not much I can say about the CRKT Squid that hasnít already been said. Despite some minor fit and finish blemishes that can be expected at this price point, you are getting a great knife for the money. My particular blade was asymmetrically ground, but the 8Cr13MoV steel came razor sharp and was easy to touch up between use. The knife fits very well in the hand for such a small handle and feels incredibly solid. The frame lock continues to provide a secure lockup after about 1 yearís use, and the action has improved considerably over time. A great little knife you can throw in your pocket and forget you are carrying until you need it.

Great knife. Thumb tab and lock are rough on the thumb, but still fun to open and close. The blade shape is very sturdy, perfect for opening boxes and breaking them down. Very nice little knife.
Great little beginner knife

I love this thing. Best $20 I ever spent. The little screws towards the lanyard hole get loose sometimes but that's no real problem. This knife deploys so incredibly fast once it's broken in. Small and unassuming, but functional and very comfortable in hand. You won't regret this purchase, even if you're used to spending 10◊ this amount on knives.
Great EDC!

I've been carrying this every day for a few months, and it's been a perfect fit for me. I don't use a knife for any heavy duty tasks (though this can handle some harder work admirably), and it did take a bit to break in so that it can be flipped open and closed more quickly. It's light enough that you can almost forget you're carrying out as it disappears in your pocket. Love that something so affordable is also high quality.
One of the Best sub $20 EDC Blades

The Squid is an excellent choice for a sub $20 budget knife. The black stonewash looks really classy, almost like a gentleman's folder. Blade is thick enough to handle some tougher tasks, but small enough to legally carry almost anywhere (US). Nice deeper carry pocket clip. Fairly smooth for having teflon washers. They could easily sell it for $10-$15 more with bronze washers and I'd buy it. 8cr13mov holds a decent edge and is easily resharpened. Again if they ever come out with an upgraded steel version (in conjunction with the washers) It'd definitely be worth it. Overall excellent folder.
Good edc knife

Some people don't like this knife but I think it's better than others in same price range. It feels solid not flimsy and that's a win in my book. Simple design, but that's what makes it great. Can't go wrong with this one. Perfect for people starting to collect or as a gift.
Great EDC!

Great EDC for a starter knife. I've started carrying an EDC, mostly for safety cuz I walk in downtown at night and to and from work. But this knife works great opening boxes at work and other daily tasks.

It works great for people w/ smaller hands. I added a short paracord lanyard for convenience to get the knife out of your pocket.

My reason for 1 star short, the blade doesn't stay sharp very long. After opening a few boxes heavily tapped, the edge can get dull. But it isn't something that should stop you from getting the knife. Just keep a sharpener on hand and it should be razor sharp in no time!
Awesome

You could not buy a more solid knife for this price. The locking mechanism works great, I love the titanium body (which also has plenty of space for engraving), and the overall sharpness/point of the knife is just marvelous. One of my favorite knifes, easy.
Squid Knife-- Awesome!

I must say, having owned a Spyderco Techno and now this knife, it is INCREDIBLE value. Very, VERY solid, great sharpness, carries nice and deep--a new favorite knife. dollar for dollar, this is hard to beat. Very stout and reliable.
