Description
CR6120: Jettison Folding Knife, Designed by Robert Carter
CRKT
 
This compact knife had some big shoes to fill. The designer of the Jettison comes from a long line of knife craftsmen. But with a razor-sharp blade and frame lock, this everyday carry knife is anything but junior when it comes to cutting tasks. 

Robert Carter is an up-and-coming knife designer from Hillister, Texas. He spent years learning the knife making traditions of his father, Joe Pardue and grandfather, Mel Pardue. Later, he wanted to design a folder for tasks where bigger blades got in the way. So, he created the compact, but mighty, Jettison. 

This compact folder acts bigger than its size with a cool looking 2.028" wharncliffe blade that's ideal for everyday tasks in the shop, home or wherever a job calls out for you. Just reach into your pocket, grab the smooth titanium handle and put the Jettison to work. Its frame lock will have your back and keep you safe. 

When you've got a big job to do, the Jettison is up for the challenge.

Flawed but Usable
I was primarily attracted to this knife because of the small Wharncliffe blade. Wharncliffes are very useful for daily errand type tasks and this one promised to nestle almost invisibly in the pocket - which it does.The blade is fine - it is adequately sharp. There are two problems with it - the flipper mechanism is very difficult to make work, even after adding drops of gun oil and working it open and closed a zillion times. At least half the time when you flip, nothing happens at all, or the blade half opens.Actually, you can't say that "nothing happens at all". Because the rear part of the scale is so diminutive, and because the scale surface is smooth, it is very easy to simply launch the little knife across the room.I think it is a stretch to classify this knife as a "flipper", and it would actually be friendlier to use without the flipper protruberance. You just have to accept that you have to open it with two hands, and close it with two hands, and make VERY sure you've got it locked open before cutting anything.It looks like this knife may have been discontinued, which is no great loss. Even at a discount $32 is steep for something like this - other than the Wharncliffe option, looking at the little Brownings at half the price may be a better choice.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use
Likable
I really love the design of this knife. The titanium handles are a big plus especially in this price range. The blade shape just begs to be put to work. At 1.3 ounces you wont know you are even carrying it. It is very small so those with large hands may fumble around with it. My particular example does not flip open fully no matter how hard I try. I suspect the pivot will need adjustment. The big drawback to me with this knife is the frame lock. I cannot disengage it without digging my thumbnail into it. The blade grind is mostly even, decently sharp, and the centering is virtually spot on.
