Recent Reviews - CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool)

This is good sturdy knife. Because of it being new it's a little stiff when opening. I used a little metal oil to work in and it's getting smoother. So far I'm liking this knife.

Great knife. The engraving was faint and hard to read, not like on previous knives we've bought.

I picked this out at the SMKW in Sevierville,Tennessee for my Sweetheart to give me. I was just looking for a knife with single sided handle slim enough to carry every day to the office. They only had the serrated version, which I prefer, as it is more useful. And I prefer a tanto blade. I didn't know I was getting such a famous knife by such a respected designer. I still have it and now that I am retired, I only need to carry it when I don't want a lot of bulk in my front pocket. It could have been a half inch longer and still be OK. But I wouldn't take it anywhere that it might be confiscated.

I've been carrying one of the original M-16's for about 10 years and love it. Bought one of them a couple of years ago with the new Lawks lock, Hate it. It now just sits on the shelf. My original is still in my pocket.

nice knife for the office! non knife people do not freak out when i use it to open a box or a letter!

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.
