Description
CR7096: Richard Rogers 7096 CEO
CRKT
 
The CEO is a knife that’s dressed for success. At first glance, it could be mistaken for a pen tucked into a shirt pocket. And that’s exactly the way the CEO folding knife was designed. With a supremely low profile and no corners cut on usability and ergonomics, it embodies the working spirit of everyday carry.

Known for his clean, simple, highly-usable designs, Richard Rogers releases another formidable knife from his shop in the scrubby hills of Magdalena, New Mexico. Created with dress shirt pockets and v-neck scrubs in mind, the slim, low-profile CEO poses as a pen until a sealed letter needs opening or a suit needs a finishing touch. With lubed ball bearings in the pivot to reduce friction, a slim thumb stud sets IKBS in motion, quickly deploying the satin-finished stainless steel blade. A locking liner keeps it securely in place between the sleek and strong glass-reinforced nylon handle.

The CEO: pairs best with an extra dark roast and a long to-do list.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
I'd give it a 4+
This is a very elegant looking knife. The handle also has a nice grippy texture which is good, since it is not very ergonomic. In fact, it looks more like a (very sharp) letter opener when open, and doesn't scream knife when closed and clipped in a shirt or jacket pocket. Like others, I initially had some trouble opening it smoothly, fearing I might cut my thumb on the blade, but after some practice, I can now flip it open without problem. As others noted, the pocket clip has an asymmetric profile with a rather sharp point; would have preferred a simple, rounded off end.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, None
So Close!
I bought this knife as an EDC. Recycling, kitchen prep, picnics, repairs, general light work. Pros: -Elegant. -Great feel in my big hands. -Useful blade shape. -Useful blade length. -sturdy construction (for it's intended use)Cons: -Opening it one handed is very difficult. There's just not enough handle for my fingers to grip while I engage the thumb stud. It's a design flaw that keeps this knife from being a 5.-The pocket clip has a sharp(ish) corner that can be uncomfortable.
