Great knife I use this as my EDC, and it has proven to be INCREDIBLY useful in my day-to-day, as well as my job as a Chef. Solid, great looking, and (at times) indispensable. I appreciate the one-hand opening, as well as the very solid *click* upon opening. However, there is one fault that I have found. When closed in a one-handed style, it tends to be a figure guillotine. I purchased this knife at the local Cabela's when I felt guilty for cutting myself (not to say that I'm TOO heartbroken upon the puchase). I have closed it on my right index finger a few times, usually resulting in a small cut from the obscenely sharp finish and smooth action of the close. Its a great knife, just please be careful when closing in a hurry.
If you're looking for a knife that you can pull out and use without notice, better pass on this one because it attracts comments. What kind of knife is that? Where can I get one?
Looks-wise it just doesn't get any better than this. I admire the minimalistic, "less is more" design. I see a sport motorcycle. A sports car, beautiful as it is, still has a body that creates an appearance, not the machinery underneath. On a sportbike the engine, brakes, chain, and even all the fasteners add to the appeal. That's how it is with this knife.
The blade opens and closes with butter-smooth precision with either the flipper or the thumb stud. Size is perfect both open and closed, rides great in your pocket, sits naturally in your hand so it's comfortable to use. Sweet knife and incredible value.
Never have I got more complements on a knife. Great looking knife with the serrated edge. Performs well and I like the overall weight.

Just like any CRKT knife it is rock solid and a hell of a nice blade. My only gripe is the edges of the handle need to be debured better.
The fit and finish of this knife is wonderful, as is its heft. It's a decent sized knife that fits snugly into my larger hands, and the blade shape itself is cunning. The lock gives me a slight pause for concern, as the release for it is located right above the bottom of the grip, making me think it might close accidentally. I have not been able to get it to do so though, regardless of grip strength, or how I grip the knife.
Overall I am very pleased with the Graphite, and it just reaffirms my thought that CRKT is one of the best knife makers in the world.
This knife is awesome It it is a high quality build and has a great hand fit and feel. I bought this as an edc and especially for work. I choose the veff serations and this thing really makes short work of rope and strapping. The blade is thick and durable this knife was designed for work. If you are on the fence trust me, at this price it is more than worth it
