Steel type is 1.4116. European equivalent to 420hc, I think Victorinox Swiss knives use that steel.

You're not getting s35vn at this price.

5Cr15MoV / 440C / 4116 is the lowest end steel I'd consider even worth sharpening.

8Cr13MoV is worse, it's gas station knife quality. 5Cr sharpens better and holds its edge better. This is pretty much the lowest end knife above gas station quality.

For $30 it's about where it should be. Looking like this? I wouldn't pay $10. You do you though. So many better knives out there that I wouldn't waste the pocket space in a fishing bag for this crap.


Spreadsheet of most popular knives, steels and sharpen edges compared buy rope cutting tests -> https://docs.google.com/spreadshe...d=43566811 <- Spoiler Alert CRKT ranks near the bottom in knife quality tested. Even using advanced sharpeners, they fall flat on their steel quality/heat treatments. I wouldn't bother with any of their knives with how many better priced and performing knives are out there.

I pocket carry an AD10 to work though.

If we wanted prices to be on par with steel, we wouldn't be on slickdeals now would we?

Looks worse than most gas station knives.
It'd be a good beach camping knife with the strip function to clean it out and the corrosion resistance of the steel.

Heat treatment matters too. Buck does a great job with 420HC, Victorinox has been successful with 1.4116.

The Field Strip option is intriguing, however I wonder if CRKT fixed the problem of the blade belly crashing into the backspacer when closing the knife. That problem seemed to plague the all metal models, effectively dulling and/or rolling the edge on the blade.
