Columbia River Knife & Tool
Jim Hammond's Cruiser is a multi-purpose folder that has garnered much praise.

The Cruiser abounds with design subtleties. For example, the handle features a forward slanted friction grooved thumb ramp and a deep finger choil for the index finger, allowing what is known as the "fencer's grip".

To simplify the clean open build, a unique blade stop channel is CNC machined within the blade. This in turn, allows a friction grooved, tapered blade extension (or flipper) which aids opening the Cruiser, and then neatly completes the finger choil. It has been called "the sweetest flipper in the business."

In translating Jim's custom Cruiser into production, Columbia River used their extremely durable InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, one locking. The injection molded black textured Zytel scales featuring their Operator's Grip are radiused and contoured with swells to perfectly fit the hand. The long handle, with a pronounced pommel, feels secure and entirely right.

Their work and sport version of the Cruiser use tough 8CR14MoV stainless steel for the clip-point blade. It has a high hollow grind that curves upward near the tip and a long false top edge, making it an exceptionally versatile work tool. Dual thumb studs and Teflon blade bearings at the blade pivot allow smooth one hand opening and closing.

They've also incorporated the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS®) into the Cruiser, which makes the folder a virtual fixed blade when engaged.

To give the Cruiser maximum utility in a variety of work situations, Columbia River had Jim design a special paddle style pocket clip, which can be attached in four positions: tip up, tip down, left or right. (The Cruiser is not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.) Two clips and extra torx screws are included. The stainless steel clips are Teflon plated.

Being used to Kershaw I found the sharpness lacking and the speed opening sticky.

Not an EDC but an excellent tool.
This is a much huskier knife than I had envisioned when I placed my order so I was really surprised when I opened the box on arrival. The reviews talk about how much heftier this knife is than expected but you have to see it for yourself to understand. I had expected to use this knife as an EDC but it is far too heavy to carry comfortably in my pocket, weighing in at 6.12 oz on my scale. What I did not expect is that this husky knife would replace the CRKT Outrage and the Kershaw Speedsafe that I normally keep on my desk as my first pick for odd jobs around the house. Because the handle of this knife is so thick (measures almost an inch thick at its widest point), it is much more comfortable for work that requires some pressure to cut through wood or heavy cardboard boxes. The knife flips open smoothly and retracts without doing damage to your fingernail. I was not looking for a 'keep it on hand' for daily use product but am pleased to have found one that is made for any job. This is a tough knife. It won't fit well in your pocket but there isn't much you would be afraid to use it on every day.

This is a LOT of knife for the price!
I just got this knife, but I feel fine in submitting a review on it already because I am super impressed. $20 for this knife is an insane deal. First off, it's ridiculously sharp, both the edge and the point. It's also not a small knife. The blade is nearly 4" and the handle is oversized, making this a hefty at 6oz. Regarding the handle, it feels extremely good and secure in the hand, and I have somewhat large hands. I have no issues at all with the handle material, it gives a very good grip. I also really appreciate the knife safety, although the liner lock is much more secure all by itself (coming all the way to the very middle of the blade pivot) than the other knives in this price range that I own from a different manufacturer (Kershaw). I also like the paddle-style pocket clip, it shift in the pocket at all even with the chunky-sized handle and the overall weight. Opens one-handed just fine with the flipper (at least once I give it a flick) but closing definitely takes two hands. It's amazing that one can pick up a knife of this size with this many features for the price! Incredible job, CRKT!
