Out of all my CKF knives, I carry this the most. The attention to detail is superb. I could not find a single imperfection anywhere. Not a single divot in the carbon fiber. Light but substantial. This is the only liner lock knife I have seen that has a hardened steel insert in the titanium. Beautiful hand rubbed satin finish, came extremely sharp, and flips like a dream...as fast as most autos. This knife should cost at least double what they sell for.

In a class of its own
I've had this sweet folder for a while now and only posted this review as I see no others and can't understand why. From the finish on the CF scales to the hand rubbed finish on the blade this knife screams CUSTOM. Even the pocket clip shows that extra little finishing touch and like all other CKF folders I've handled so far it came razor sharp with a flipping action that seems assisted. The only hit I would give it is that the CF scales have such a smooth finish that there isn't much traction if you're planning to use this knife hard, but apart from that it shows a modern design element added to quality fit & finish. I'll still give it 5 stars.
