Designer Liong Mah uses a bold profile to shape his vision of tactical. The Eraser™ locking liner tactical folding knife is designed and built to perform in your world. Its modified tanto blade wields a strong point for tough piercing into a variety of materials, and the elongated cutting edge can go the distance.
Opening the blade is rapid with use of the Flipper on the spine. Another added feature is the patented* LAWKS™ manual safety mechanism. LAWKS®, the Lake and Walker Knife Safety innovation. LAWKS® sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use. To engage the safety, push the LAWKS® lever forward. To close the knife, pull the LAWKS® lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.
The robust Eraser™ handle has a slight bend at the fore end to create a more substantial grip form for thrusting. The handle shape also affords a nice blade guard as well as a generous pommel. The machined G10 scales are radius contoured to fill the grip and the full, stainless steel liners create a formidable foundation for tough use.
All in all, the Eraser™ folder is one hell of a tactical folder that can take every bit of what you can dish out.
I wanted to comment on the placement of the LAWKS, I LIKE IT There I said it. Some people say it is a hot spot for the thumb, the LAWKS gives my thumb something to rest on preventing it from sliding forward. I have no complaints about this knife. It is replacing my Zero Tolerance 300 for EDC, if you know about that knife than its a big compliment to the CRKT Eraser. Another great knife CRKT and kudos to Liong Mah...keep them coming guys. I can never have too many CRKT's in my collection

This is the best knife I've ever owned. My love/trust of CRKT knives were passed down to me by my father who taught me what a good blade felt like and that price is not an option when looking for quality that could save your life. I've had no issue with the LAWKS, even during the stab test. The only way I could see the LAWKS being painful is if held in the Forward Saber grip, in which case you would probably not need the LAWKS engaged. Modified Saber, Hammer, Filipino and Blade Out/In Reverse grips, no issues with LAWKS at all. There's no blade play and ergonomics of the design makes the knife feel like an extension of your arm creating easy slicing action and incredible stabbing power. In a test I passed through 21 layers of cardboard.
Good Job Liong Mah and CRKT

Great knife, fit finish and ergonomics are superior. Four position pocket clip allows you to carry ready to deploy left or right handed. Hefty, solid, sturdy blade that quickly deploys with the flipper and lock in place. Easy one handed use, this knife should last a lifetime.
