This is a LOT of knife for the price!
I just got this knife, but I feel fine in submitting a review on it already because I am super impressed. $20 for this knife is an insane deal. First off, it's ridiculously sharp, both the edge and the point. It's also not a small knife. The blade is nearly 4" and the handle is oversized, making this a hefty at 6oz. Regarding the handle, it feels extremely good and secure in the hand, and I have somewhat large hands. I have no issues at all with the handle material, it gives a very good grip. I also really appreciate the knife safety, although the liner lock is much more secure all by itself (coming all the way to the very middle of the blade pivot) than the other knives in this price range that I own from a different manufacturer (Kershaw). I also like the paddle-style pocket clip, it shift in the pocket at all even with the chunky-sized handle and the overall weight. Opens one-handed just fine with the flipper (at least once I give it a flick) but closing definitely takes two hands. It's amazing that one can pick up a knife of this size with this many features for the price! Incredible job, CRKT!
