I’m a big CRKT fan, and while I had interest in getting this knife when it came out, I purchased a few others from their new line that I thought I’d like more. I was wrong to wait.
This knife is gorgeous and has a lot of good things going for it. Here’s a quick breakdown:
Blade: Came razor sharp, including the flat top Veff Serrations. High quality Sandvik steel and the retention has been excellent so far. Medium hollow grind on the blade which comes to a very sharp, almost spear point tip. The serrations aren’t as good as the original Veff’s, but they’ll be way easier to sharpen, so there’s that.
Deploy/lockup: IKBS works great here. No thumbstuds, just the flipper. Liner lock is very thin but lockup is perfectly secure. Zero blade play in any direction, even after a moderate amount of use. Liners run entire length of the knife.
Ergos: Great for me, but my hands are medium to small. The G10 is grippy, and the milled out scales give additional support and are really comfortable. There’s a little bit of decent jimping on the spine, but they really could have extended it further. Bigger hands will need to choke up or use a lanyard.
Clip/carry: Clip is a small downer. Not a low carry at all, so a good amount of the knife will be exposed. Also, the clip is really tight, and I can see the G10 shredding some pockets. Clip is one position only, but it is for tip up carry. Unusual for CRKT.
All in all, I love this knife. Wish I had purchased it earlier. I would put it right up there with the new Ripple as my favorite CRKT offerings this year.
