Great Gentlemen's Knife
Jeff S.
The shape is long and thin so it goes in the pocket without taking up a bunch of space. It opens very nicely to where you would almost think it was a spring assist. I enjoy carrying this almost every day. It comes very sharp out of the box. My son-in-law got one too.
Good to look at
Anthony G.
This knife is absolutely beautiful but in my opinion that's where the story ends. The knife is too light for it's size, it feels almost dainty and cheap. Also I've had previous experience with aus 8 steel and have always been able to achieve a hair splitting edge but not on this knife. Lastly the ball bearings arent as smooth as im used to, takes a slight flick of the wrist to get that satisfying pop like on my other flippers, I believe it's had plenty of "break in" time I've carried this for six months or so. It's a shame because of all my knives that include spydecos, zt, and Chris Reeves this is one of my favorite to look at.
Almost Perfect
Anthony M.
This is the gentlemanís folder i have been looking for at a reasonable price! Even though the blade shape leads you to believe it is a natural slicer it isnít. It comes sharp but cuts like a 20 degree edge. I think it would be perfect if it were between 15 - 17 degrees.
Solid EDC
Ryan W.
As my title suggests, this is a solid option for everyday carry. I liken this knife to a folding fillet knife. Its got a long slender and curved blade. As for carry the clip is deep carry. The flipper tab and the handle texture makes this an attractive knife. I just wish CRKT would upgrade its steel choices. Why is CRKT still sticking to AUS 8. Everyone else seems to have upgraded from VG10 to S30V or AUS 8 to D2. Whats the deal CRKT? Regardless of my 2 cents on the blade steel, this is a compelling knife to get. So get it!
I want another !
Christian C.
Seriously, I want another. I bought one, loved it, needed a birthday gift for someone and gave it away. I will be buying one again soon.
Great knife
Jacob M.
This is an amazing knife to carry for special occasions. It has a small discrete pocket clip and is very lightweight. Depending on your occupation I don't believe that is is a reliable edc due to its very thin blade and handle but it's personal preference. Only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the thin handle but that is me being picky. Still a great sleek knife
Absolutely wonder!
Andrew B.
I don't know how many videos I watched or articles I read featuring this knife, but I just had to have it! I finally pulled the trigger and am so glad I did! It feels great in the hand and the deep carry almost disappears in my pocket. Came sharp enough to shave and holds the edge like a champ. A definite must own for any knife collector or as your go to EDC.
Perfect for the pocket and the wallet.
What a great knife! Mr. Park and CRKT have hit a homerun with this one. The knife is easy to carry, it's lightweight and slim. This makes allows this knife to be carried in light shortd with zero sagging or an uncomfortable heavy feeling in the pocket. The flipper is very positive and quick. The blade detent allows the finger to preload the blade before the detent releases allowing a very quick action. The IKBS bearings are very smooth and seem to keep most of the pivot friction at bay. The pocket clip allows for a deep carry, which is nice. The materials and machining are very good. The only two minus marks I have noted are a slightly gritty bearing (fixed by cleaning) and an unequal edge grind (easy to re-profile). Again, this knife is great!
Excellent EDC/gentleman's folder
Nick D.
This is my very first CRKT knife. I knew I had to have it when I saw it's debut at ShotShow. My Crossbones came scary sharp out of the box. Deployment is a bit rough, but I expect it to loosen up with more use. Blade came centered and locks up tight. Zero blade play. It's very light weight and takes up very little pocket room. If Crkt decides to make a premium model in the future ill definitely be picking one up. All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase. I was so impressed with crkt I ended up ordering a Crkt Homefront edc as a work knife.
Liner lock
Kyle T.
I recently received this knife and have carried it on my person every day since. There are a multitude of aspects that I love about this knife, including the pivot speed, its incredible light weight, blade retention for its quality level, and overall sexy look and feel. However, this knife can't climb above a 4 star review for me due to the stubborn liner lock. Perhaps it was the knife I received, but even after a week of daily use the locking mechanism continues to frustrate my thumb. It locks up incredibly tightly and causes issues when I go to close it single handedly. The jimping on the liner lock has started to rough up the tip of my thumb due to the pressure I must use to unlock the blade to safely close it. Overall, this is an absolute knockout knife for the price point and versatility it provides, however, the lock annoyance would cause me to think twice about gifting or purchasing a second.
