Like so many knives in the CRKT catalog, Ed Van Hoy's Snap Lock´┐Ż design is demanding to manufacture. It is an intricate design, and the unique patent-pending cam lock system requires exceptionally precise machining of the mating surfaces to assure a tight lock-up. So we were challenged when the first question we got was, "When can I get a smaller personal version?" Ultimately, we were able to reduce the Snap Lock to 70% of its original size, resulting in a little gem with a 1.75" (4.4 cm) blade, weighing only 1.5 ounces (43 g).
We call it the Snap Lock 2. In construction and details, it is virtually a miniaturization of the Snap Lock, with the same side folding action.
When closed, the AUS 4 stainless steel wishbone frame is a 100% effective blade edge guard; when open, it is a minimal but very usable handle. The harder you grip the handle, the more it locks the blade in place, thanks to twelve positive locking surfaces between the frame and locking lugs, so it is a very safe and secure system.
The Snap Lock 2 also is ambidextrous, featuring two thumb wheels. We include left and right removable pocket/money clips. Like its bigger brother, its blade can pivot a full 360 degrees with no clip, or 180 degrees in either direction with either stainless steel clip in place. Opening and closing can be accomplished with one hand and is equally easy. Simply press the thumb wheel and rotate the blade.
The AUS 4 stainless steel blade with a Razor-Sharp edge has a modified drop point with the overall shape softened by a subtle false top edge. Four lightening holes give a Van Hoy decorative touch.
Blade, frame, and clip have a contemporary bead blast finish.
Like our very successful P.E.C.K., the Snap Lock 2 is incredibly handy. Clip it to a pocket, belt or gear. Use it as a neat key fob or money clip. Wear it on your chain or lanyard. Or carry it in a purse or briefcase.
Yes, it is a cute little high tech decorative knife. But the all steel construction means you can use it for decades on real cutting tasks.
