CRKT M4-02W Folding Knife

Some of my initial reviews of CRKT M4-02W folding knife. Just got this a few weeks ago and I share my thoughts on the knife.


There are a lot of other videos on youtube about this in action, I just wanted to share that as an EDC for cubicle dwellers that this is a nice blade to have as I find it rather classy with the brushed stainless steel & wood burl.

It is a bit stiff to deploy, I found that at least 100 reps to loosen things up a bit. Left handed users will have a little more trouble than right handed users.

The LAWKS system helps a lot to deploy the blade, I think users with shorter fingers will appreciate this.

The blade comes very sharp, and at 3.7 onces in weight, it feels heavy, chunky.
