The Foasil with its almost 4 inch blade is a breakthrough. Has a perfectly centered blade with no movement in any direction when locked. Easy to adjust. Excellent caged bearing system works well against the hard stainless scales. Does not have loose bearings. The blade falls completely free when unlocked and goes to the closed position by itself. The well placed detent allows the knive to unlock without struggling to get past the detent. What a pleasure to flip. It's fast and very smooth. The lighter weight for a knife this size has knocked out my usual daily carry that costs $600 more. Yes this knife is that good. The blade steel is known for its ease of sharpening and cuts phone book paper with easily right out of the box

Mine is awesome The blade locks up like a $300 knife and the bearing system is as smooth as silk It gives a nice positive traction in the hand with minimal to no slip. For $39.97 at Walmart, this knife is hard to beat.

Love it, love it, love it. This thing is a beast. Razor sharp out of the box and has everything I've wanted in an EDC knife. Blade just a hair under the 4" legal limit in my state. I have been looking for a non-assist knife which I can still open quickly and this is it. You hit the flipper and for the smoothness of the action it might as well be an assist open - it's that quick. Nice deep carry clip and it's got a very handsome appearance. Just opening it is enough to scare you half to death, which is just the effect I'm looking for. Thanks for the great design. CRKT is the only company I buy from.
Awesome knife Love the feel and weight and the carry. Opens easily and fast with good grip to it. I'll be ordering a plain edge as well.

I used to carry an M21-14SFG as my EDC...until I got the 5470 Fossil. This knife is amazing. It looks 10x better in person than it does in pictures. Out of the box it is razor sharp, lock up is like a fixed blade, and that silky smooth IKBS. Its hard to describe without feeling the heavy blade slice through the air, it's not rushed or hurried or flimsy. The action is very solid, very matter of fact, but it deploys so effortlessly. Detent is strong, it will not accidentally open. The steel is...what it is. Its not D2 or S30V but you can actually resharpen it at home and it takes an edge extremely well. The handle is small but because of the design and texturing you can get a very solid grip on this in either standard or reverse grip. Amazing knife,and for the price, it's a no brainer.
Beautiful knife. Looks custom,love the handle. looks a lot like Arizona Iron wood. will have this knife soon.

Personaly I like the fossil scales. they give a very secure grip. I knife seems to jump openafter very little pressure to open it. Should have ordered two.
