I don’t know if you’ve ever gotten your hand on a CRKT folding knife, but they are by far one of the highest quality knives on the market. The CRKT Ken Onion knife I have is my favorite, but the CRKT Argus by award winning knife designer, Matthew Lerch, looks tough. Especially with the black coating!


This knife is light too–4.2 oz with an 6061 aluminum frame and 3.55″ (90.17 mm) Steel, corrosion resistant blade. The overall length is 8.13″ (206.5 mm) and the thumb-assist can be re-positioned for left-handers (like me). The blade on my other CRKT folding knife came razor sharp and has held up to all sorts of abuse, even through some knife-throwing practice.

I’ve seen this knife retail for as much as $170, with a regular retail price of $130, but you can get it on sale now for $59.99.
