I bought this knife almost 10 years ago while in the Air Force. I have used in every environment and it has never failed me. As with any fine tool, you have to keep it sharpened and clean. It looks almost as new a the day I bought it at the base. I have 38 years in both the Army and Air Force. I own many knives. When I deploy, (city or field) I always bring this knife with me.
Love the knife. My son who is in law enforcement has the same knife and has used it for 8 years with no issues. would consider buying other CRKT items.

I had purchased this knife as a replacement for my M16-14-Special-Forces-Tanto knife. I had that one for almost 2.5 years with only a small amount of rust forming on the screw that held the blade onto the handle. Now with this knife, after approximately three weeks I ALREADY have rust forming all along the blade. My use and edc carry is NO different now than before. Maybe I got a lemon knife, maybe all of them are bad, regardless I have nothing but regrets in purchasing this knife especially for the huge amount if money spent (in my opinion). I highly doubt that CRKT will do anything to remedy this, but the gauntlet has been laid down. I hope they make the right decision. - CRKT Response - Requested Customer to return the knife for a replacement.

I have 16 CRKT knives and I am very satisfied with the quality and workmanship of CRKT knives. The first CRKT knife I purchased was the Komodo which has been discontinued. I purchased a M16-14 about 20 years ago. I lost that knife a couple years ago and I have just purchased the M16-14T and I am very happy to have the M16 in my pocket again. I am a knife guy and I have over 100 knives. I would recommend CRKT to anyone starting a knife collection. I have also proudly given CRKT knives as gifts. I am a very satisfied CRKT customer.

I have three CRKT knives. I could care less where they are made, as long as they are well made and backed by a US company. CRKT is a US company. Most other knife makers have their knives made overseas, if they don't the cost of the knife is prohibitive. That is today's economy, there is nothing a consumer can do to change it. If you wish to buy a US made knife, and are willing to pay the price, by all means do so. I can't afford to do that.
This knife is awesome. Unfortunately I lost my original which I had for over 10 years thru 6 Iraq and 5 Afghan deployments. This knife never failed me on the battlefield and it was a huge loss when it came up missing. I am not a happy camper that the original has been replaced.
This is my first CRKT blade and I'm impressed. The knife is good quality, though I was surprised that is was made in Taiwan. From other very positive comments I read, I am convinced I made an excellent choice and I'm looking forward to many years of excellent service from this knife.

Just recieved this knife today, quickly shipped, and my God. This is my third Columbia River Ive purchased and I just continue to be surprised and impressed with the quality of what Im holding. Superior in all ways to every other knife Ive held and this model is a BEAST. Count on this to meet all your expectations and set price aside, its worth every penny. Thank you CRKT and Kit Carson for putting good steel in my hands for last 12 years, cant wait to see what you make next.
