Recent Reviews - CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool)

I got carried away processing wood and broke our family tool. Didn't want the std K-bar, so after some research, I chose the Mah-chete. Day after UPS dropped it off, I went back to the same wood that broke my previous tool. I chopped, hacked, made kindling. It was excellent in every way. Chopped like my Estwing. Batoned my way through several 5-7" pieces of maple with ease. Wood just flies apart. My only complaint is that I would have had a rougher texture on the handel. Maybe cryton/zytel. After a day of hacking, just had to touch-up the edge a little.

Bought this as a gift. Recipient is extrodinarily pleased. Nice balance, easy to use in kitchen or camp. Personalization was neat and attractive.

I got this knife ,and immediately loved it. It is a very sturdy ,handsome knife. I especially like the assisted open,very smooth action.It was super sharp,and holds a fine edge readily. The belt clip is a bit stiff, but that is a good thing,I don't want this one to get away.

seems to be a pretty good little knife, been carried it for over a month . have only used it for cutting tape on boxes sharped it this morning seems to hold an edge .

I've always liked CRKT and had a smaller pocket knife made by them. Once I got this one I realized I REALLY loved the quality of CRKT knives. I love this knife!!! I carry it in my pocket, and despite it being larger, it fits very well in all of my jeans. I do purchase jeans w/longer pockets though because I carry 2 knives on me at all times. One in each pocket. This knife is by far my favorite out of the ones I use. It really does hold a nice sharp edge for a long time, and I do use it a lot. I don't have to sharpen it as much as I do w/some of my other knives. The blade flips out with such ease, doesn't take much pressure at all. I love the "click" it makes; you can hear the quality in the sound. Overall, this is truly a WONDERFUL knife and is stunning to look at. The texture on the G10 handle is very unique! It's a looker for sure--pure beauty in it's design. I would highly suggest this knife for anyone wanting a larger pocket knife to carry and use. I've had mine forever and nothing has gone wrong with it!! I do take good care of it but needless to say, it TRULY is WELL MADE!!!

I bought this knife because it looked really nice in the picture. I`ve had it a few months now and it looks even better.It came razor sharp out of the box.It fjust feels real good in my hand. The assisted opening system on this folder is awesome. Just one little flip of the thumb and the blade exits it`s folded position inside the handle with lightning speed.The safety feature on this knife will not allow the blade to close up on you while using it.I like to put a different E.D.C in my pocket every day and this awesome CRKT folder is one of them.

Very well made, great looking knife.

Very well made and easy to hold on to, holds an edge very good.
