Pros: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Materials
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
I bought this knife to wear in the horizontal position on my left side for a right hand draw. When I opened the box I knew immediately the belt loop was too narrow for any of my belts. Yes, it is tall enough to fit most any belt, but unless the belt is as flat as a sheet of notebook paper, then it's useless. Nevertheless, I went online and bought a universal belt clip, and some matte finish black ball chain for use in neck carrying, and now all's right with the world. Why did I go through this much hassle? Simply put, the CRKT Folts Minimalist TRULY IS A GREAT LITTLE KNIFE! It fits snugly in its Kydex sheath, and wont fall out. Its steel isn't as hard as some people might want so it will eventually have to be sharpened, but I've done some pretty severe cutting and even some light skinning with mine, and its still as sharp as when it came out of the box, and the gimping on top provides great control. The one thing I really would change about it is the Grip. I have medium-small hands and the grip finger cut-outs are much too close together. Also, the handle should include space for the fourth finger instead of the little paracord dingleberry hangin out there. So, would I buy it again after all that? YouBETCHA! As I said, it's a GREAT knife!
