Ruger by CRKT

Designed by Matthew Lerch, the Follow-Through Compact is a solid and functional EDC folding knife. The 3.25" blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. The handles are made from glass-reinforced nylon with a classic diamond checkered pattern, inspired by the Ruger American Pistol. The pocket clip can be positioned for both right hand and left hand carry.

great value & quality
I read a lot of mixed reviews of the Follow-Through prior to my purchase however I felt confident in my purchase. And my decision was spot on for this EDC, the ergonomics of this CRKT/Ruger knife is great and light. I have never owned a flipper before and I found this flipper to be very smooth and quick just after a few minutes of use. The blade was sharp, not the best but a few swipes on my strop and it was good to go. The only negative the blade wasn't centered, definitely "NOT" a deal breaker. That's why #6 & #8 torx bits were invented, for people who like to tinker and improve stuff that is just not quite right. Bottom line, if your on the fence about this knife jump on this deal. PS: if you are a Ruger fan you won't be disappointed.
