I bought this knife because I have the Stubby Pocket Razel. I figured a folding version would be the ultimate carry knife. I was somewhat wrong, but this is an awesome blade. The Subby Pocket Razel is likely better suited for overall woodworking projects, or if you're going to wear/carry it on any sort of belt. The Stubby Folding Razel is a better overall project knife, I found the thumb grooves on the back great for stripping wires. It's a little too thick and bulky to be the ultimate carry knife. The scales make it feel thick and while it looks nice, the scales feel like they might shatter if dropped. I keep thinking nicely designed mahogany scales would have been killer. But it's a great product. Got one for my Dad for Father's Day, so def recommend it.

I purchased a stubby folding razel with the # 4020rh. After first look I put it back in box and consigned it to storage. After talking to a friend and seeing his I am taking it back out for rebuilding. First off I removed the clip so it fits in the watch pocket on my jeans. second I am giving consideration to making new scales. What I am really looking at the most is getting it sharp enough. Properly sharpened by my friend this is a really good pocket carver. Great concept and I am going to hang on to it. 2star out of the box, would have been four if it was a sharp as its Razor namesake.
I Bought this because I have a property maintenance business and was thinking I could use the flat end for the many time I have to scrape things. Well I am pleased to say I use this knife all the time, every day and for many different jobs. The 90 degree point is strong and can be used where normal points are too week. It can easily be opened with one hand. The little nub you push to start the opening of the blade is wonderful and works great. This is my Favorite knife. I carry it in a little self made scabbard with a little pen along side. My two most useful tools. If you guys can make a Knife/Pen scabbard do it. You will like it. The only thing I can say negative about this knife is that it sets thick in the scabbard. I am used to small thin knives so it may be me. Buy it. You will like

Like a previous reviewer, I love the blade and the overall design, but the ram horn scales cracked after being dropped once. I'm not sure if this is a user error thing or what, but the blade also seems to be seated improperly inside the frame--it scrapes against the inner liner whenever deployed.
Despite all this it really is a nice little knife, and the 90 degree point ends up being surprisingly useful.
Just got this knife last night but already love the design. I had seen another review for the gigantic Razel SS7 and was intrigued by the chisel tip but didn't need that much knife so started exploring. What I really wanted was the larger folder that has been discontinued, but I figured the price was right to at least give this a try. I like the stubby but hope they release the larger 4035 again, I'll snatch it up in a heartbeat. Push comes to shove I may have to just go through Graham Knives directly... though the price is daunting.
This is a neat and handy little knife. The blade came in very sharp. It is very useful for everyday needs
Great blade and love the handle but the belt clip is cheap and caused damage to my knife. The belt clip bent after snagging on a cabinet and cause the knife to fall out of my pocket. In turn this caused the blade to shift so that when I close it I have to push it to the side to close properly. Blade is great though. I use it to open a constant stream of boxes sent to my office. I just wish the belt clip hasn't been so cheap, it no longer even works as a clip because it's so bent out of place.

Love the blade, but the ram horn on the handle broke about two months into ownership. The knife was only used for very light duty (opening boxes, etc.) and was never dropped from a height of more than 1-2 inches. The ram bone cracked right around the screws holding it in place. Sadly, I am unable to ship in back to CRKT for replacement due to the arcane laws of the city in which I live. Unfortunately, I now question the durability of CRKT knives. ***CRKT RESPONSE - Please send back to us when and or where you can. We have one of the best warranties in the business.

Received for Christmas--although it was on my wish list for over a year--and it's everything I thought it would be. Like others, the scales are lighter in color than the photo, but not by much, and knife works the same regardless of color. I love that the blade is short enough to carry anywhere where a knife can be legally carried in my area, and its 90-degree point is tough and well-suited for puncturing materials to start cuts. Its short folded length also means that it fits in the coin pocket of my jeans--a definite plus. I would like different scale options (wood, micarta, aluminum, etc.) but I'm not complaining. The ram horn is awesome, and I could always change the scales myself if I really felt I needed a change.
