Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Perfect handle feel, ergonomics, and weight. Always liked the CRKT quality. Used to own 2 "Bwanas" CRKT and I lost them !!! They are discontinued now. Why ??? This will not replace the Bwana, but it is an acceptable substitute for EDC in my line of work, horse and mule packing, where cutting ropes in emergency is to be considered. Good size too. Some of these folders are too small! For me anyway… Also glad it came in the tan color, and I didn't have to put up with the usual black handle.

Great everyday knife
I've had one of these for years , rode rough , field tested in every way . Saw this one for sale and bought it just so I'd have back up . Both are very sharp and tough .

Heavy and strong. Hard to adjust.
I bought this (from another vendor) with the intention of using it as an EDC blade. It's heavy, which doesn't bother me because it can probably stand up to a bit of abuse. My main issues with the knife are that you need three different torx bits to adjust it (t6 for clip screws and thumb stud, t9 for the liner lock side of pivot screw, and t10 for the opposite side of the pivot screw). The pivot is hard to adjust to a level where the flipper and the LAWKS system are both functional and there is minimal blade play. If it's loose enough to flip open with extreme ease, the blade has a very pronounced wobble, and if it's adjusted to the point that the blade play is gone, the flipper and the LAWKS system are very hard to actuate effectively. Also, the blade needed both sharpening and honing out of the box. I'd say I'm not impressed, but at this price the knife is still a great value!

Pros: Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
No Quality control by CRKT, and Poor customer service by Knife Center
This would have been an otherwise fine knife for the money had it not been for the fact that CRKT has no quality control. This is the third knife of theirs I had to return for the same problem. The blade was so out of center it was ridiculous, almost touching the frame, it was also barely able to deploy and when I attempted to center things got even worse due to someone thinking this poorly tuned should have lock tight on the pivot so this knife had no value other than a paper weight and to add insult to injury the Knife Center "not to be bothered rep" explained I would have to pay return postage. The way companies elect to put uneducated people in decision making roles speaks volumes and in spite of this being a $20 knife I also purchase plenty of $100 knives, now elsewhere.
