CR2490: 2490 Squid
The Squid is a compact folding design from Lucas Burnley that is built to stay with you at all times and handle any task. The compact 2.14" blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a stonewashed finish and hollow ground spear point shape. It's a wonderful design that fills the hand, maximizes blade length as much as possible, and provides you with stout cutting power in a minuscule package. The handle is 2.19", made from 2Cr13 stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. It's a frame lock design you will have a hard time finding a flaw in, especially at this price. Also available in a blackwashed finish.

This Lucas Burnley-designed everyday carry knife is compact in stature but packs some heat in the features department. It comes with a frame lock for safety, and friction grooves on the drop-point blade for a secure grip. Be careful where you point it.

The Squid is an everyday carry folding knife from designer Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Based on the concept of a compact pistol, it's small in size and big on ability. Don't let the 2.14" blade fool you; this is a full-on, tactically inspired knife that's ready to take on your largest cutting challenges. By keeping it wide at nearly one inch and using the drop-point style, Burnley was able to give the blade a good balance of tip strength and point geometry for utility tasks, packing all the functionality of a full-size tactical folder, into an easy to carry, compact design.

Just like any good gun, you want something that'll keep you safe. That's why the Squid comes with an internal frame lock and deep pocket clip for a secure carry. When you're ready for this knife to see some action, use the thumb stud to deploy the blade.

So go ahead and bring this sidearm with you wherever you go. It's a pistol of a knife - it obliterates tasks.

Best knife ever
I work in HVAC and many times my knives ends up being used a a tool so they are always dull with a broken tip, the Squid is a tool for me as well so it gets used as a screw driver, pry bar, hammer, etc. Just today I used it as a philips screw driver then cut up some cardboard with it.I bought my 1st Squid 3 years ago and it has held up to my abuse. I find it is easy to open with 1 hand, wet/greasy hands and with winter gloves on. The pocket clip keeps it in place and has never come loose even laying under houses on my side crawling around the knife stays where it belongs, The weight of the knife is good- it feels like a big knife in my hands. The handle in a nice size- fits the hand good. The stainless finish is easy to clean and so far nothing sticks to it- even paint. And the blade stays sharp and when it does get dull I can sharpen it fast with just a few licks on the stoneI bought a 2nd Squid just as a backup when I do loose my 1st bladeBuy it you won't be disappointed don;t be scared of the low price CKRT makes good stuff

One of the Greats
This is a folder that can disappear in your pocket when you need it to, but be all business when you need it to as well. The handle is a three finger one for sure, so I put a small black snake knot paracord lanyard on it for a full purchase on the knife, and it also allows for the knife to be easier pulled out of pocket, as the lanyard hole sticks out of the pocket. All in all, I would've paid double for this knife and still just as happy. Buy it.

Its a little heavier and smaller than expected (DaMn YouZ iNteRnEt PiCtUrEs!!!!11!!)Anyway, Its a solid and well crafted piece of metal, you can tell its made too last (and in that respect the weight is reassuring reminder of its strong stainless steel construction)I value durability in my knives (a broken knife is worthless after all)This tough little folder was Einstein sharp out of the box, Very Happy
