CRKT Van Hoy On Fire Knife

It was 6 months ago when Just{elation} acquired a knife made by Columbia River Knife & Tool Company.  Their Van Hoy On Fire folding pocket knife with a straight (non-serrated) blade to be exact.  It was designed by award winning custom knife maker Ed Van Hoy, from stainless steel and aluminum to save weight.  Van Hoy incorporated a LAWKS safety system to ensure the blade can be locked open, preventing it from folding under pressure while in use.  The 2.375″ stainless steel (AUS 8 to be exact) bead blasted blade has held a decent edge over the past 6 months, ensuring that you’ll always be able to hack up that…well…you decide what you’re cutting with it!  The casing was well designed, cut in just the perfect fashion that you see the laser etched CRKT logo on the blade aligned nicely with the angles of the casing when the knife is closed.  There is a decently strong spring placed to assist with the opening of the knife, and a thumb hold to help with the opening.

The knife has held up fine, the spring assisted opening has been a difficult one to master as it seems difficult compared to other knives.  The lightweight and smooth sides make this a great knife to carry daily, not catching on anything when clipped to your pocket, and not so big that you can’t simply drop it into your pocket as well.  For a straight edged blade, it holds up to daily use just fine, and has only formed a few small knicks (oops, that may be my fault!)

Continued testing and updates will be posted here, this was a 6 month review, an 8 and 12 month review to come soon!
