People have asked us for years, "Where are your classic pocket knives?" And we were slightly embarrassed to explain that we didn't make them. So this year we went to work to create a premium line of traditional pocket knives made with the best materials, fit, and finish possible.
We call them the CRKT Pocket Classics, and they're available in seven of the most commonly requested styles. They feature high-carbon stainless steel blades with Razor-Sharp cutting edges, brass liners, polished nickel silver bolsters and pins, stainless steel springs, and special "burned amber" jig bone covers.
Whittler. Our three-blader has a swell-center handle with fully rounded ends and 2.25" (57 mm) large clip point blade, plus small clip point, and pen blades.
We welcome comparison of this new CRKT line to pocket knives made anywhere in the world, both in terms of quality and value.
I bought this as a gift for someone so I am not a frequent user, however, taken as a whole the knife seemed pretty solid. I have a few knives but am by no means an expert in the area. I think it's worth mentioning that there are three blades, all of which cut well. The only downfall about the knife (knowledge of negative aspects I find much more valuable prior to purchase) is that the blades are somewhat difficult to open, however I assume that this might change over time or might be fixed by applying a lubricant (if such action adheres to CRKT product use guidelines). Other than this I cannot speak to much about the product since I am not a frequent user, however I contend the price certainly is right for the quality of product received.

Received just a few hours ago. Nice, tight blades, cuts fine. Good looking too. Like the other reviewers, wasn't real happy to see the "product of China" tag on the box, but I'm already trying to decide on my next CRKT purchase.

Just received this knife. My first CRKT. The knife came with nice sharp edges and seems to be put together very good. I was surprised because the knife was made in China and most knives I own are either German or American made. If the quality is this good I probably will buy a few different models in the classic line. Good job CRKT
