Recent Reviews - CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool)

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.

Love this knife!! Super shop right out of the box

The knife is well made, looks great, and the blade is holding its edge. I really like this knife and carry it daily. For the price, you can not beat this knife.

This is the best machete if you're are interested in cutting through thick brush. I've used it all across South Carolina: mostly through the swamps and lowcounty areas. It rocks.

This is a great knife, in fact it's my second one. I unfortunately lost my first one when it came out of my pocket while I was in the woods. This time I removed the pocket clip and bought a leather belt case for it. It's a fantastic knife!

My CRKT Carson knife has become my favorite, carry-it-all-the-time pocket pet. I sort of collect knives - within the limits of a retirement budget. I cannot shell out a couple of hundred bucks for a new toy. But the Carson has the design, the heft, and the build quality of a much more expensive knife. It is out of the box super sharp, for openers, with a nicely designed, ground and finished blade. Opening, however, is a problem: the construction it is so tight it took two hands to open the knife enough to trigger the opening assist. It took an email to Columbia River, the purchase of a number six torx wrench and a lot of flexing with knife oil to open with one hand. After practice I can now open it efficiently most of the time. The struggle is worth it - love this knife.

Should have read closer, it isn't spring assisted. Very small knife, not what I expected at all.
