Recent Reviews - Columbia River (CRKT) Knife & Tool

The M16 14SFG can handle it's own against any knife with common attributes. I have now purchased the entire line of M16 knifes. Excellent knife .

This knife is impressive in looks and quality. That said, the knife is almost impossible to open with one hand using the thumb stub. If it was a little longer I think it would work much better it's almost the same height as the handle and in an awkward place. I will keep the knife because I like its looks and it's very quality made. Maybe I can replace the thumb stud if I can find a longer one.

First of all I am very happy with my purchase. The (CRKT) M4-02 with the white bone handles is one of the best looking knives I have ever purchased, but it reaches much further than cosmetics. The assisted opening mechanism works perfectly. It's super easy to open with one hand and it locks securely into place, ready for any of your toughest cutting needs safely. The blade itself is made from a high carbon steel which is going to make it sharpen well and hard enough to hold a sharp edge longer. I was so impressed with this knife I ordered 2 more so I have one whit bone handle, one with stag handles, and one with Burl wooden handles. This is one of the higher quality of knives you will find with the low price the a Knife Depot sells it for. For quality and price your just not going to find a better deal, believe me I checked the same knife from the CRKT web site and it was priced almost 25% lower at the Knife Depot than the manufacturers web store. If your looking for a quality knife at its lowest price you can't do any better than The Knife Depot. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent EDC. Perfect size, functionality, and weight. Very easy to open & close unless your a moron! Use the flipper to open. The so-called thumb studs are actually the blade stop. Their not suppose to be used to open the knife! Easy to sharpen. Well built knife. Worth every penny.

This knife is both rugged and beautiful. The blade is so sharp it surprised me. It's my new favorite that I carry often.

Straightforward and very functional fillet knife with very sharp blade. Would buy again.

Great overall build quality, just the right size for trail blazers.
