CR7097: Richard Rogers 7097 CEO Flipper

Columbia River (CRKT)

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 Flipper 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 Flipper 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 prominent flipper sets IKBS in motion, smoothly 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.

Should've bought the thumb stud version
I really wanted to like this knife. I just can't. I own somewhere around 70 knives. Most of them are flippers: ZT, Benchmade, Kizer, Artisan, all the big American and foreign brands. I'm saying that to let you know I'm not a novice. I'm quite fluid with them, all kinds of them. But man o man this CEO is hard to open!!! Sometimes the lock is a little tough to open too.It's a pretty thing, but beware your poor index finger! Mine already had heavy callouses: I'm in front of a desk all day and I flip knifes between Zoom calls with strangers and during calls with friendly, male clients.People love this thing and you probably will too, but I sure don't. I'm glad it's just a $40 knife or it would be going back.

Little Changes Make BIG Improvement
I have the original CEO and bought the Flipper as soon as I heard about it. Not sure why anyone is saying it is difficult to flip; I find that it flips easily and reliably. The material of the handle is an improvement to the grip of the knife. The pocket clip is smaller and no longer has a CRKT logo, calling far less attention t it when carried in a pocket. The steel has been upgraded to AUS 8. And, there is more room for the thumb on the liner lock, allowing easier closing. This is a great executive knife!

Improved CEO
Have the original, which is fairly discrete, sans the CRKT on the pocket clip. Now tip up, fully covert pocket clip, and a flipper, making it ambidextrous. Improved steel too. Only downside is the stiff action to engage; not a deal breaker.
