CR7914: 7914CM Hammond Cruiser
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. 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
Extreme 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.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Alright, first of all I just have to say that I'm a recovering kershaw user, so I didn't know how nice knives were supposed to be. I say that because my last knife, the Kershaw One Ton, had an horrible blade on it that broke after like two weeks of owning it. This thing kicks butt in eight different directions. EVERYTHING on this knife is freaking sturdy, and it's nice and large, so as to boost your man factor, or just fit a large hand. Didn't come in very sharp, but sharp enough for most needs. Really, at this price I'm pretty sure that you can't do better. Highly recommend it.

This must be clarified this type of knife is not an assisted blade its a flick assist your supppoesd to flick your wrist at the same time you use the finger assist and it opens quick and easy assisted knives use springs.
