Recent Reviews - Columbia River (CRKT) Knife & Tool
Nice Knife but the thumb stud needs to be re-designed. The stud should be angled like the Kershaw Ken Onion.
I purchased this as a gift for my husband for Father's Day. Our poodles gave it to him. He loves it. It is made well, very sturdy, and the tools all perform well the purposes for which they are intended. My husband is a "gadget guy," so he enjoyed sitting down and learning about the Guppie's different uses then showing me what it is capable of doing. My husband has decided he is going to keep it in his glove box. That way he will have it for emergencies or incidents that arise when he's away from the house. He'll also know exactly where it is when he's looking for it, provided he puts it back where it belongs, of course. The Guppie makes a great gift for anyone who likes gadgets and for anyone who, should the need arise, likes the idea of having a few extra tools around in a convenient, small size.
I'd like to give this item five stars, but the truth is, I have yet to use it. I bought two, one for me and one for my husband. My main reason for purchasing them was for the seat belt cutter. My husband loves his Key Ring Emergency Tool, and although he has not had an opportunity to use the cutter on his seat belt (thank God) he has used a couple of the other tools, so it has come in handy. If my husband was doing this review, he'd probably give the Key Ring Emergency Tool five stars. It is made well, and it's a nice size. We both have them dangling from our key rings, and the tool blends in with our keys, so it's not a nuisance or an inconvenience. Personally, I hope neither one of us ever finds ourselves having to use the seat belt cutter, whether for ourselves or someone else, but it's nice knowing we have them on our person, just in case. I'd recommend this product. It's a great "anytime" gift as it's not expensive, and it would also make a nice stocking stuffer at Christmas.
To big for my taste.
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.
