I really liked this knife. I bought it for EDC and really appreciate the Carson flipper and the deep-belly spear point. It's a little awkward to close...auto-lawks isn't a big deal, but the other release can be a bit hard to get to. It was also my first experience with the Veff serrations and I am not a fan of them. Within the first couple of weeks, two tips of the Veff teeth are gone...and I've only cut 550 cord, cardboard and light nylon strap. I really wish I had gone with the M21-14SF.
Have owned CRKT knives now for about 14 yrs. started with the K.I.S.S. as a quick utility knife then picked an M16 tanto to add to my kit. After that, it was get 'em as soon as I had the $$$. I've added quite a few CRKTs to my collection and will continue to do so The M21-14SFG is easily the best folder I've EVER owned Next on the list.....some Redemption.
Big folder, full hilt, serrations are second to none. Had some slight (correctable) issues with the Lawks but CRKT got me set up and working again within hours Fantastic knife.
CRKT folding knives were recommended to me about six years ago by my good friend and retired Marine, George. He raved about the durability and handling of his folder. It took me all of this time to pick one up. After a month, I am please with it. It's big as folders go. The safety lock was a bit awkward for me at first but it is growing on me quickly as I am not able to operate it one handed- just took some practice. It's solid and it feels sturdy in the hand. I am not afraid to use this knife and certainly not afraid it is going to break. Love the serrations- they really 'bite'. Action is smooth and consistent. Finally, I love that the clip can be moved. I have several folders that are upside down- to me- as far as the clip goes and it annoys me. Providing options is a great feature.
I am completely in love with my M21-14SFG. Never mind the amazingly-crafted blade and absolutely SICK Veff serrations. Never mind the tight tolerances and ZERO blade wiggle both folded and deployed. Never mind the combination of precision and ruggedness that lets you both chop firewood AND dig out the splinters from your fingertips. What is totally impressive is the butter-smooth action of the deployment and blade lock. Most good knife blades click into place with a satisfying SNAP. The M21 blade GLIDES quickly into place and locks with a single, rock-solid move. I tend to like assisted blades, but this double-flipper design makes deployment so effortless that it doesn't need an assist.
I won't go into the field without this knife by my side

The CRKT M21-14SFG was my EDC knife, and was carried for around two years time. The design of the knife is essentially solid, but there are a few weaknesses that should also be addressed. Starting with the it's best aspects

Just got my M21-14SFG and I'm already looking at another one haven't made my mind up yet of which one. But I guarantee you this will not be my last CRKT knife.
I used to carry the M16 as my EDC blade. This knife, the M21-14SFG is the most amazing and versatile EDC blade I have ever had the pleasure of owning. An amazing product. Sturdier that the M16, stronger blade, amazing edge, full hilt, perfectly balanced with adjustable carry. You can bang on the blade all day (cutting wood, for example) and this thing keeps going and going. I haven't been able to dull the tip in the tiniest way yet, and I really use this thing. Thanks again, CRKT.
Received this Knife for a Christmas Present and it is the best knife I have ever had. Strong, sharp and good looking. Thanks CRKT for making a great product in the USA.
Got this knife a few weeks ago to replace my SOG Trident as my EDC. Overall I'm very pleased with it except for the AUTOLAWKS, which broke the 2nd day I had it. The design itself is excellent, the knife has a very hefty though well balanced weight, and feels great to wield. The dual hilts which act as a thumbstud, though not advertised as such work well as a "wave" opening feature found only on substantially more expensive knives. The blade itself wears very well and maintains its edge well. The veff serrations work well and I have found them easier to sharpen than most people have. The only thing I would change (besides addressing the autolawks, probably a fluke) would be to make the actual thumbstud protrude slightly more, as it sits flush with the handle now and can be tricky. ****CRKT RESPONSE - That doesn't sound right, we will reach out to you and make this right for you.
