The Fire Spark is a hefty knife that fits well to my hands; the finger grooves assure a secure grasp. It's a keeper. The Fire Spark OutBurst Assist is designed as a ôright handed knife", but I want a knife, other than a flipper opener, with which I can be ambidextrous. It took me three weeks before I opened the Fire Spark for the first time with my left forefinger and another week before I established the muscle memory of my left hand's forefinger. It's a subtle action in contrast to the right hand thumb engaging the OutBurst assist. Place the left forefinger (where the nail cutting edge begins) in contact with thumb stud and, with slight pressure, extend finger (nudge) the stud approx. 30°. Simple when you've performed the action twice. The Fire Spark is sharp out of the box: Be wary.
I have had the Fire Spark for a few weeks now. I use it at least 5 to 7 times a week. I love the sharpness of the blade right out of the box. The Outburst blade assist took a little getting used to I think its great. From time to time I have a little trouble with the safety lock but I think it just has to do with how I hold the knife and gravity. It's all good now it's a GREAT folding knife.

Can't say enough about this knife, this is probly my 10th CRKT and it does NOT dissapoint.
The build is very tight on this bad boy, little loc-tite on all the screws and some lube and this is a very FIRM lock up, no blade play at all, less than my NOTORIOUS, and that is my favorite.
the handle is shaped very well, reminds me of some of SWs handle styles, except much better executed polished G-10 is glamorous but not slick and able to get hot spots. LAWKS, also works just fine on the models i have too.
The blade, while being a spear point (not my favorite, just PO) is long, graceful and FREAKING SHARP, able to be resharpened over and over too without effort. cuts through everything easily, food, rope, paper etc, except for wood haha. Thanks CRKT, still my favorite, knives for men

I really like this knife. The quality of the materials, fit and finish is well made. It takes a little practice opening the knife. It is now my everyday carry knife.

Love this knife The opening mechanism takes a little practice, but when you get the hang of it, the knife springs to life. This knife has a great feel in the hand and it is beautifully crafted.
What can I say???
I really, really love this knife. When you look at the photos initially, it looks like a good looking EDC.
When you get it in your hand, the knife changes character.
This is "BIG," solid, well balanced knife with outstanding attention attention paid to fit and finish. Superior materials are used that will not disappoint. The OutBurst® assisted opening with patent-pending Fire Safe™ mechanism work flawlessly. I liked it so much that after the first week of owning it, I bought another one to have on hand in the event I was talked out of it by a friend or god forbid, I should loose it.
Excellent engineering and craftsmanship that will pay for its self in the future.
I have this knife also in my collection of CRKT knives and it is one of the best if not the best all around knife I have ever owned The size is just right for all outdoor activities and its' smooth operation and quick opening is fantastic I have 7 CRKT knifes now and I hope to add more as time passes I absolutely cannot get enough CRKT knifes as they are the best in the world for quality and guarantee work Thank you CRKT
Great product, easy to use with quality materials. I would recommend this knife to any one.
This knife was a terrific surprise as it exceeded by already high expectations. This is one of many CRKT knifes that I have purchased. All have been of high quality and balance. This has the quickest assisted release. The excellent heft and balance make the knife feel at home in my hand. I like the black section of the handle as it enhances the tactile experience with the knife. The blades locks extremely securely, but is easily broken down with activation of the release mechanisms.
This knife surpassed all my expectations. It has incredible styling to the blade. The action from the outburst is faster than any other assisted knife I've ever had. It has a great weight to it, super heavy. The only issue I have with it is the tacky black section on the handle. But, that is just really nitpicky as I prefer straight metal for my handles.
