CR2490KS: 2490KS Squid Blackwash
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 blackwashed 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 blackwashed 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 stonewashed 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.

This was an impulse buy, but it turned out to be my new EDC. I like everything about it; it's small but hefty, feels good in the hand, and after adjusting the pivot screw, it opens with little effort and no blade play. I'm thinking of putting a lanyard on it but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.

Leaves a bit to be desired
While I like the design of this knife on the aesthetic side, functionally, it leaves me wanting a bit more. I like the overall shape of the blade and handle, and the stonewashed finish offset by the black hardware and back spacer looks great. In the hand however, it starts to lose me. The thumb stud, while visually interesting, ends up being a bit too smooth, and I find my thumb slipping on it every other time I attempt to open the knife. The location finger choil in the scales makes the knife sit oddly in my hand, as if its sitting too far from the blade. The steel scales add a nice weight to this knife without overdoing it, and the frame lock is quite good. For the price, this isn't a bad knife, but it's not something I would EDC.
