I got this for a friend's birthday. He uses it often and claims it to hold it's edge very well and always performs greatly. I always knew CRKT would not be a wrong choice for an affordable gift.
Good for EDC

I own the 12GD FDE variant of this knife. I use it as a smaller alternative to the much larger M16-14D. It is pretty much the perfect size for casual EDC as it isn't too "imposing", it's lightweight thanks to the G-10 handles and also fairly slim. The blade is fairly tough and sharpens well. I'm on the fence about this style of serrations. They work well, but I haven't had to attempt to sharpen them. Their geometry is broad but aggressive. I am personally a fan of CRKT's locking system, it's intuitive and secure. Also, the flipper is smooth and reliable.
Great CRKT classic
Anderson S.
Very cool & stylish EDC w/ good materials and a super-sharp edge and serrations. The LAWKS system is pretty handy also. Love this knife and all the other models in its family.
