CRK456XXP: K456XXP Eros Large
For those who want five stars, here's the pocket knife version.

When Ken Onion designed the original Eros, he invented "gentleman's tactical" - knives that look swanky AND get the job done. Now, the Eros with flat handles brings the beauty of this gentleman's folding pocket knife to the folks who don't have a country club membership and they wouldn't know what to do with it if they did.

The Eros is a church knife, suit knife or gent's knife that sits slim and discrete in the pocket, yet doesn't require a fat wallet to get your hands on. It's got flat, stainless steel handles that are perfect for customization and a sleek blade that keep it quiet, yet confidently infused with testosterone. The IKBS pivot ball-bearing system makes opening this blade smooth and fast.

The Eros comes in a large size or a small size. Being a gentleman never felt so manly.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Great knife!
I recently purchased this and I have to say it is the perfect size and weight for light to medium use EDC applications. The only think I do not like about it is that is that it is right hand carry only but otherwise it is great!

Cons: None
Never leave home without it!
A perfectly sized, discrete, and very handy knife. The blade comes out of the box very sharp, and the ball bearing pivot point system makes opening and closing remarkably smooth. I carry it everyday and it's small enough that I can still get other things unto my pocket, and it's just large enough to tackle the various things I need it for throughout my day. I strongly recommend this product for anyone looking for a nice and effective everyday carry knife that just happens to have a little bit of class to it too.

Fallen angel
I was very excited to purchase this knife. Unfortunately it is a big disappointment after only 4 hours of use. It is impossible to close it with one hand. You can't access the framelock with one hand. Lockup approx. 5%. Significantly bladeplay out from the box.... if you try to tighten the pivot it will not flip. It is a very nice knife but unfortunately, due to defects in design, it will stay in his box!
