Automatic conversion of the popular and long discontinued Lake PAL from CRKT. With a simple push of the button, the blade is deployed and ready for use.

Button locks arenít new. They have been a puzzle that kept knifemakers awake at night. Typically, they have required a complex mix of liner-type springs, top spring bars and a separate pin stop. Then Ron Lake solved the riddle. His patent pending Piston Activated Lock (P.A.L.ô) has just one hardened piston which acts as a stop pin and locking and release mechanism. Study it. At first itís an enigma, then you realize itís the most user-friendly folder imaginable.

The P.A.L.ís open build frame of 420J2 stainless steel has a satin finish, with threaded stainless steel spacers and jigged bone inlays, a first for CRKT. It offers supreme strength and rigidity, with the warmth of traditional materials.

The blade is AUS 8 stainless steel, in a modified clip point shape with a satin finish. It is available with a Razor-Sharp or Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Pointô Serrated edges.

Love this knife

Great knife for the price!
Quiet and Very Smooth
Stuart W.
This knife is tight when open. The spring is string enough to do the job and just a little bit more. If you want a knife with very fast opening and a noisy lock-up (such as a Pro-Tech Godson) this is not the knife you are looking for. Relative to such a knife, this knife's opening is understated. It's smooth action gives reliable lock-up with hardly a sound.
