Recent Reviews - CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool)

Very well made, great looking knife.

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

I've had this knife for about 5 years now and still absolutely love it! The past couple months I've been trying out a couple different knives to replace it but I went right back to it. Its so smooth and sturdy. Takes and holds an edge very well and just looks aweosme. I also can't go without the flipper tab on it to open it. Its so smooth and feels natural to me now. Highly reccomended

Close, it appears to be a traditional working knife that wouldn't scare most people if laid on a table or handed to a person in need. Snapped open, it shows its teeth to have some seriously sharp and sturdy capability. Oh yes!

I really want to like this knife. Of all the CRKT knives I own this is my least favorite. The blade steel seems softer than usual from CRKT. The pivot screw needs constant adjusting to keep the blade centering and opening properly. I will have to locktite it to see if that will help. I do not care for the LAWKS system. MEH.

Very attractive and well made knife. I've received many compliments. Mainly carry this one on more dressed up occasions so haven't put its utility to the test but it seems very sharp and durable.

Arrived very sharp from the box. Looks cool. Sheath holds it tightly. Don't care for the cord for neck use. I plan on replacing it with ball chain like what is on military dog tags. Vertical belt carry works ok. Tried horizontal belt carry. That did not work for me. The knife bit me when I drew it from the sheath as I had to hold the sheath so it wouldn't slide on my belt. It drank my blood so now I truly own it. Like I wrote it is very sharp.

I am very pleased with this knife. It is a great deal for its price point. It is the sharpest of all of my EDC knives. The Outburst and Firesafe features work perfectly and the knife is very pleasing to my eye. Put one in to your EDC rotation.
