The Argus Black edition is a new model for 2015. It is everything you love about the regular Argus folder and adds an oxide blasted, then anodized black handle along with a black finsihed blade. It's crowd-pleasing stealth version from the guys at CRKT.

There's a lot of variety when it comes to knives, but for those who are looking to purchase an attractive everyday carry knife, the Matthew Lerch designed Argus folder is a worthy choice. It's an assisted opening knife equipped with CRKT's patented Outburst spring assisted mechanism along with the Fire Safe mechanism to prevent accidental blade deployment. The knife is easy to use, just press down and out on the thumb disk to open, but be sure to hang on tight. The Argus has a 6061 aluminum handle with an elegant groove that is both graceful and practical.

Very nice looking knife
Scott W.
This is another knife that I donít use as an EDC and it just sits in a different part of the house to have a knife around in different places. I initially was going to use this as an EDC but there were a few things I didnít really care for on it. Maybe it was just me but using that disk as an opener had a learning curve that caused a blister. Now that it has loosened up, it opens extremely fast. I donít care for the curve of the pocket clip. It hits my small hand right in a bad spot to make it something that I think I could hold onto if it came to a real battle (really I probably would be so adrenalized I wouldnít even notice til afterwards) but it is uncomfortable in my hand. I also think that close this knife it just sort of wilts if you hold it blade down. As soon as you push the lock to the side the blade just falls down. Looking at it, I might be able to tighten that up a little bit. I like the feel of the grip except for the clip and I feel like the lock is not very sturdy. Itís still a nice knife and looks good. Could be the right knife for the right sized handed person (mine are pretty small).
