Description
CR7904DB: Hammond Desert Cruiser
Columbia River Knife & Tool
 
Jim Hammond's Cruiser is a multi-purpose folder that has garnered much praise.

The Cruiser abounds with design subtleties. For example, the handle features a forward slanted friction grooved thumb ramp and a deep finger choil for the index finger, allowing what is known as the "fencer's grip".

To simplify the clean open build, a unique blade stop channel is CNC machined within the blade. This in turn, allows a friction grooved, tapered blade extension (or flipper) which aids opening the Cruiser, and then neatly completes the finger choil. It has been called "the sweetest flipper in the business."

In translating Jim's custom Cruiser into production, Columbia River used their extremely durable InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, one locking. The injection molded black textured Zytel scales featuring their Operator's Grip are radiused and contoured with swells to perfectly fit the hand. The long handle, with a pronounced pommel, feels secure and entirely right.

Their work and sport version of the Cruiser use tough 8CR14MoV stainless steel for the clip-point blade. It has a high hollow grind that curves upward near the tip and a long false top edge, making it an exceptionally versatile work tool. Dual thumb studs and Teflon blade bearings at the blade pivot allow smooth one hand opening and closing.

They've also incorporated the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS®) into the Cruiser, which makes the folder a virtual fixed blade when engaged.

To give the Cruiser maximum utility in a variety of work situations, Columbia River had Jim design a special paddle style pocket clip, which can be attached in four positions: tip up, tip down, left or right. (The Cruiser is not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.) Two clips and extra torx screws are included. The stainless steel clips are Teflon plated.

Pros: Handle Material, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Lock failure
Generally, a decent knife for the price. Big drawback: liner lock fails when given a modestly firm whack on the back of the blade. Even with the secondary safety engaged 2-3 good whacks will cause it to fail. Problem is, the secondary lock doesn't engage the liner lock well enough to hold it under stress. As a general pocket knife its fine; just don't expect any tactical/defense capabilities.

Cons: None
Great Value on an Outstanding Knife
I was very skeptical of the quality of knife I was going to receive due to the price being so low, but as someone who has owned several CRKT knives in the past I felt certain they wouldn't allow their name to be placed on any junk! When I received the knife from KnifeCenter.com I was glad to see that I was correct in my assumption, there's nothing junky or cheap about the Hammond Cruiser!! Thank you KnifCenter.com for such a pleasurable shopping experience.
