The CRKT 8900, (commonly referred to as the) Colombian River knife, is a tactical folding knife with a locking liner designed either with a razor edge or a serrated edge (8900 and 8900k). It has a tanto blade and pointed edge for piercing various materials. The bend in the handle provides a better grip for a small or a large palm. To provide better grip this blade handle is designed with scales. The cutting edge is pretty long and can be pierced into a tough surface. This blade also comes with a flipper, hence very easy and quick to open. It has a manual safety method in order to secure the blade from accidentally opening. The stainless steel lining prevents the knife from rusting away quickly. CRKT 8900 review’s on most other sites are very positive and looks like the vast majority of the people love using this knife.
This knife has a very creative and innovative design. These knives are designed by Liong Mah, a Malaysian. Weight is somewhere around 5.3 ounces and very easy to use. The fit and finish of this knife are excellent and a very good deal for your money. The hands on feel of this knife are very much appreciated by most of the customers who buy them. The marvelous luster of this knife attracts all new users just by the look of it. The flipper moves the blade very fast in and out and people find it fun to play with these flippers.
This knife is very comfortable for the forward and reverse grip because of the reverse tanto edges and sharp razor edges. It has a patented manual safety mechanism commonly called LAWKS so that your thumb can rest on something and can give you a better grip, whilst not opening at the same time.
This knife is certainly worth taking few minutes of your life to give an appropriate appreciation for the diverse purpose it is being used. This is a practical knife and can be used for various purposes such as self-defense, kitchen utilities, as a showcase item or any other emergency tactical situations. It is more widely used for home purposes rather than hunting or external sports, although you may use this knife when you go on hunting and need the sharp piercing knife for some piercing purposes.
CRKT 8900 knife is not too cheap. However, it is a beautifully crafted sharp knife and at this price, it is a great value just as the CKRT 8900 was recently reviewed in Blade Magazine.
