William W. from El Cajon, CA
A great looking knife with a good blade, but I sent mine back. It was too hard to open and close. I actually injured my thumb trying to open and close this knife. I think it's the LAWKS Safety System. It slides a small disk against the liner lock to prevent the lock from releasing, however I think it also makes the knife difficult to open and close. It seems to solve a problem that doesn't exist. I have another CRKT knife with the LAWKS and it has the same problem although not as bad as the M4-02W.

I have not yet used the knife but I like the feel and it will take and hold an edge, it should be an excellent skinning knife. 73 yrs and still looking for the ultimate knife for dressing game. I don't care about the fancy handles. I just want one that does the job year after year.

Knife is large for a pocket knife. Feels good in the hand and looks good. The pocket clip is wimpy for a large knife. First time I carried it, the clip bent like a paper clip when I sat down. I had to remove the clip and bend it back. CRKT sent me a new clip but it was just like the first one.

Beautiful and well made. It came out of the package razor sharp. Even though it's made overseas the quality is top notch. I bought three of them and gave two to my sons. They love them. If you want a well made different looking knife, this is it!

I have a collection approaching 50 knives and this is one of my most favourite folders. It is light, strong and holds its edge extremely well.

Quality seems ok so far. kind of disappointed that this is a product sold under the guise of being a US company, but is made in China. Can we make nothing anymore?
