Customer Reviews

Sleek and Smooth
NATHAN P. on Jan 31, 2022

I have been wanting a CEO for awhile and when I saw this D2 exclusive version I bought it on impulse. The finish is clean and the action is so smooth that it feels like an automatic. The scales have a good feel to them. It's a wee bit heavier than I expected but still very light. This is the perfect sleek EDC for light duty work. I am pleased with mine and thinking about picking up the compact later. Also, got it in 3 days to KY.

An amazing knife overall
Jake S. on Feb 13, 2022

This thing really blew me away. The action is incredibly smooth. Almost drop shut which is very impressive for a budget liner lock. The liner is easy to get to. The handle isn't cut away but the liner has a cut out that makes it easy to get your thumb onto. the flipper tab is perfect for push button or light switching. the carry clip carries deep and you barely notice it in when gripping the knife. The grip is comfortable even if it's basically just a big rectangle. The factory edge is fine but I gave it an 18 degree edge with a 15 degree micro bevel as I feel something like this should be extra slicey. Finally, it just looks classy. Any time I bring it out people are always interested. Overall, it's one of my favorite knives in my collection. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of a classier slimmer knife.

I like this version of the CEO
TK K. on Feb 11, 2022

What I like about the knife. Slim. Lightweight. D2 steel. Blacked out handles and blade. What I dont like. I have bought 2 and there was a noticable difference between the two knives. One had a stiffer lock bar than the other. It's not too stiff to where it cause issues when flipping the knife open. Which was an issue with the first CEO flipper model when it was first released.
