    This is my second CRKT and I love them both. Very sharp and the assisted opening on this one is a nice addition. A little bigger then I was hoping as it's mostly for opening boxes and mail for me, but other then that...

    Easy opening and closing with one hand and very secure lock. Well made.

    This is a very good knife for the price I paid for it.

    I wanted to like this knife. It sure looks cool in the pictures, but it's just not right. The knife is light and feels like good quality, it may appeal to others, but it has a certain unfinished feel to it. I have used other CRKT knives and am generally fond of the brand, but this one is more gadget and less knife.

    The Outburst opening mechanism is less smooth than other knives, making one handed operation difficult. But the real objection is just the feel of the knife in the hand. The carbon fiber provides some rigidity, but it does not feel solid. Perhaps someone, like a climber, looking for ultra light weight, would like this knife. But as an every day carry knife, it is a bit of a high tech mousetrap. The open construction just feels uncomfortable in the hand, and in the pocket. The knife works well enough and is of good enough quality if the design appeals to you, but it did not appeal to me. Luckily, with STP's return policy, returns are a breeze. I sent mine back.

    Beautiful design, great feel, but....
    Bought 3, 1 locked open positively. Returned all 3. (one that failed was a tanto blade.)
    One that did lock open wasn't too reassuring. Surprised, I've never returned a CRKT knife before and I have plenty.

    CRKT makes some of the best knives that are really nice values. I have several models, all purchased at STP. This model is ingeniously designed, making it easy to open and close with one hand. The spring-assisted OutBurst feature works really well in getting the blade out quickly, and the locking mechanism provides sure positioning of the blade in both the open and closed position. This provides excellent security to prevent accidental opening or closure, which is very important as the blade is very sharp right out of the box. I also bought the tanto blade version.

    Interesting design. Had a little difficulty in manipulation when first handled but am comfortable with the knife now. Very sharp. Button to open knife is a little sharp and catches my knuckle when I reach for something

    I didn't realize that one side of the blade was not encased in the cover. That gave me an uncomfortable feeling. Don't quite know the purpose of this style. I never actually tested the knife blade. Returned product.

    I concur with the other comments. Light knife, well-made. When you get the hang of it, it opens beautifully with one hand. It's an easy knife to have in your pocket, and well worth its remarkable price

    My new favorite pocket knife, with quality as good, or I think better, then a S.O.G. You won't go wrong ordering this knife.
