Here's one of those knives that is real tough to pass up, thanks to a solid "no nonsense" design. Need a new knife to call your "Ol' Reliable"? This straight forward folding knife is both fundamentally sound and physically fit for today's knife enthusiasts. CRKT put the utility driven, drop-point blade shape into a progressively functional handle design complete with finger grooves and slight palm swell. The Handles are G-10 with blackened stainless steel liners. The patented Fire Safe thumb-stud opener secures the blade at the ready for when it's needed, and their patented OutBurst assisted opening system makes blade opening quick. The Endorser employs a locking-liner for effective lock up and it's also easy to close when needed. Some knives don't need any hard sell to stand out...they endorse themselves.
