CR5190: Graphite
Looks like a sports car, cuts through tasks like a bulldozer. The Graphite folding knife is unique, elegant, stout and significantly cheaper than your an Italian sports car. With an open build skeletal frame and the integrated Klecker Lock for safety, Glenn Klecker's Graphite knife is a lightweight folder that's perfect for heavy-duty jobs. It has a modified drop point blade, that's also available with Veff Flat Top Serrations, and both models will cut through anything. Pop it open, put it to work, and it will soon become one of your go-to carry pieces.

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Don't give up on CRKT, Steven from Missouri
Steven, I own at least a half-dozen CRKT knives and have found them all to be excellent additions to my hoard. Maybe you did get that one not-so-hot, but they come rippin' sharp, deploy well, and are all good buys!

Great EDC
I use this knife as an EDC. This is a well built knife that has a look of quality all about it. The flipper action is very quick and smooth and has a satisfying click when deployed. The knife has a nice heft to it and feels solid in your hand. Would have given it 5 stars if it had better steel but 8Cr13MoV is not bad and sharpens easily.

Good EDC
Pros: Solid lock-up with no blade play. Sharp out of box. Unique lock design works well. Looks fantastic. Cons: My blade centering is off causing some rubbing on the flipper (blade is rub-free) It's an adequate blade steel so I'm not expecting a miracle as far as edge retention. Summary: A good looking and sharp folder, plus I like the innovative design. I'd easily have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the blade centering problem (but I may have just gotten a one off) This is my first CRKT, so I have no dealings with their customer service. But on a sub 50$ knife it's not worth messing with for me.
