Recent Reviews - CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool)

Very well made knife.... perfect for Backpacking.. The knife locks in place when put in the sheath so it don't slide off.

Love it ! It's part of my end of the world kit chopped through a 6 inch thick Oak tree in 13 chops

Good sturdy knife with quick action opening and lock. Would recommend purchase as blade has great steel, and so far is holding its' edge - though I bought it for collection purposes mostly; however, have used the blade for cutting in the kitchen a few times and seems to be holding up well overall. For the price you can't go wrong. Recommend - buy.

Just received this knife as a birthday present from my wife. A little smaller than I'd normally like but its a keeper. What a Beauty ! I have Kershaw, Gerber. Buck, ect all in the same price range but the Carson Burlwood stands out. Kind of on the stiff side hoping it free's up with use.Can't keep my hands off it. Happy it only says "Made in China" on box and not on knife.

Love it! It looks great, it's sharp, and it's sturdy. Great knife, especially for the price!

It's difficult to tell, given that I've only had the knife for a few weeks, whether or not it will stand the test of time & perform as needed. It is a very functional knife, appears well-made, is plenty sharp, and is a very nice size for carrying in / clipping to side of a pants pocket. The things I need in a knife are: holding an edge well (being hard enough), stainless steel handle as well as blade (for logo on outside), appealing to look at, very user-friendly & sturdy. This one fits the bill for all those.

Great product, super sharp and has a nice sheath. Can't wait to torture it.

Knife itself is good and useful in the kitchen and for butchering game. Don't chop wood with it. Blade takes and holds a good edge. sheath has a design flaw - security strap is too short and snap eventually fails. CRKT replaced sheath readily and cheerfully but replacement has the same problem. It may stretch if left snapped for long enough so I'm trying that.
