The liner lock designed CEO was designed and manufactured to blend into everything from a dress shirt pocket to v-neck scrubs--coupling both utilitarian value with the ability to fly under the radar. Each stainless steel blade is effortlessly deployed with a single thumb stud and the fluid action can be attributed to the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system that uses lubed ball bearings instead of a traditional spring. From the beginning, CRKT has been driven by a single purpose: to bring useful technological advancements and entirely new product concepts to today's market. This model features black GRN (Glass-Reinforced Nylon) handles, a drop point style blade in a satin finish and the deep carry pocket clip is statically designed for tip down carry only on the traditional side of the handle.

What a fantastic knife.
The tolerances are fantastic, yes it's Chinese made , remember the Chinese have great pride in everything they do. No matter where you're from craftsmanship is craftsmanship...........
Gentlemen I have been collecting knives for years and I have to say in my opinion this is one of the best EDC knives I have ever seen it is small sleek and elegant. It takes up very little pocket real estate fits so well in the hand . I’m going to have to buy at least 3 more just so I can customize them thank you Sheldon
The only reason I gave it 4 stars, and not 5, is I find it difficult to open. You have to apply a decent amount of pressure on the thumb stud, and in exactly the right angle. If you do, it flies open very fast and smooth. Being such a slender and lightweight knife though, it makes it difficult to hold while simultaneously getting the pressure and angle right on your thumb. If you don't have it right, your thumb becomes very sore from pushing unusually hard, trying to flick it open over and over (I've been playing with it non stop since I got it).....so maybe after owning it a few days, it'll break in more, or I'll get better at the method of opening it....? Time will tell. Otherwise, I love the size, shape, and style of this knife!!
