Great tactical EDC.... The thing disappears in the pocket. Has a nice flipping action for an in assisted knife once you break it in....I carried this religiously for just over a year and handed it off to a buddy who was going on a hiking trip and had no knives at all he was happy but I immediately went out and bought a new one so I would go without...
Design by Kit Carson who passed in 2014, but CRKT still uses his name and video. File under L for Loyalty. Nice design, so-so quality control. Opening needs extra push using flipper. Frame lock looks sturdy but a bit rough unlocking, may smooth with use. Extra detent slows closing, good safety feature. Like double guard, watch it doesn't open in pocket. Blade very sharp, chisel ground, okay steel.
