bluntly, i scoff at the 3 star reviews. as i have been writing this review, i keep picking up this knife and am marveling at such aesthetic, and functional greatness for a sawbuck!
i give KUDOS to the designer for nailing exactly what, what it is.
-Very light, yet still sturdy.
-Even without a locking mechanism the blade seems secure enough to handle all the light tasks you'll need it for.
-Lovely looking design. Nice finish on the metal and handle.
-Sharp blade out of the box. Had successful paper tests and shaving tests.
Not so good:
-Almost no grip to speak of. One small groove for the forefinger, but don't expect to be able to do anything more than boxes and paper, etc.
-When closed the blade is very exposed, with about a half inch of the edge exposed at the back end. Not really ideal for upkeep and edge retention.
-Despite being light, there are many smaller knives around. I got this imagining it would slide into my wallet as a backup, but the knife is a bit too wide. Also, no lanyard hole or clip so stick it in a bag or pocket I guess?
-Just can't find a good use for this knife. I like it, but there seems to be a better option for everything I can imagine needing it for.
All that being said, this knife was designed to accommodate British laws, and it does this well. It will be a good knife to have if you want something that looks pretty, does light work, and has well functioning parts. It's a cool thing to have and the price is right, but there are many good looking small knives out there that could be a better choice. For my purposes, I won't need it until I'm in England.

CRKT makes great knives with the sharpest blades you can find. They also make a good tomahawk. I carry an M16-01Z for EDC & am very satisfied with the quality of its construction. Read morePublished on May 27, 2013 by greg
