This Snap Lock model has a bead blast finished blade with a plain cutting edge. The CRKT Snap Lock folder took the knife world by storm when it won the Most Innovative Knife Award at the 2004 Blade Show. CRKT and designer Ed Van Hoy are excited to revive this popular design and bring back the 180 swing opener. Take your EDC game up a notch with the tried and true CRKT Snap Lock.

The Snap Lock was designed by custom knife maker Ed Van Hoy for comfortable everyday carry. The Rotating Snap Lock (RSL) has a cam locking system with two thumb wheels for ambidextrous use. Just press down on a thumb wheel and rotate the blade. The blade can rotate a full 360 degrees with the clip removed, or 180 degrees in either direction with the clip in place. The RSL Snap Lock knife offers stainless steel construction with a durable bead blast finish.

  • Ultra-slim skeletonized design offers comfortable everyday carry.
  • Removable stainless steel clip doubles as a pocket or money clip.
  • 180 swing opening blade offers quick blade deployment and solid lock up.

Very unique
Tae S.
Cool EDC, Came sharp.

Very unique knife that deploys by folding open or closed on itself. The lock up system is reliable and easy to manipulate.

Overall very cool, unique knife that is good for every day tasks.

Interesting Knife
Katelyn G.
It's a given that this knife is not the best knife for EDC. I do love the design of it though. It's not the most comfortable thing to hold because it is so thin. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to someone who has larger hands. It is a great knife though if you're looking to collect unique knives. Overall, it's a good quality knife.
Super cool

Great novelty, but not good for carry,
Jack S.
It's a very interesting knife on regards to function, but not great for legitimate carry
