One of my new faves from CRKT. Nicely finished and well built. I was surprised at how smooth the knife is out of the box. Most of the CRKT's i have purchased required a little bit of "tuning" on my part to function the way I like. This knife opens really quick, I dare to say a hair quick than some of my kershaw's. My only gripe about this knife is the size. I have large hands so this knife does not fit my hand too well. Don't get me wrong I love this knife, just a quick suggestion guys please offer this in a larger size. Some where in the 3 3/4" to 4" blade length please. I'll be the first in line to get one.
This knife is great Was in shop that had loads of CRKT knifes. I tried out the ripple and a handful of M16's. Was going to purchase a larger sized M16 with a tanto plain edge back side opener (dont know much about the metals but it was about the same price as I remember) This was the last knife I asked to try it and he said he just got it in. He showed me how to open it, I tried it once, and immediately told him I wanted this knife. It was the only assisted knife I tried but it had the best action.
Well balanced in your hand
Great opening mechanism- when closed, blade is locked until you press down on that silver button, then a slight flick up
Pocket clip is super tight
Blade was super sharp
Love the design of the blade The blade is as sharp and pointy as it looks in the picture. Don't drop this knife on yourself you will have a new body piercing. The only thing I would change on this knife is the handle doesn't have refined checkering like it shows in the picture, It's a very smooth checkering. I agree that the locking mechanism comes very stiff so I suggest putting a few drops of gun lubricant so that this puppy can fly.
I have several of these knives and have have given them to family members, all of them open very nicely 1 handed, fast, smooth and completely. I am quite satisfied.

Cosmetically the knife is very attractive. The Outburst assisted opening is very stiff and hard to use. In fact sometimes it doesnt work at all. Will probably send it back. ***CRKT RESPONSE - We'll reach out to you directly James to resolve. This is the first issue we have heard of with the Outburst being hard to open. Thank you for your feedback. It is helpful and we will check the Endorser series. CRKT
