CRKT Snap Lock Folding Knife

The design is more than a decade old but it’s still one of the most unique available, and finally back in production. The CRKT Snap Lock Folding Knife, originally designed by Ed Van Hoy, is skeletonized as all hell and extremely lightweight for it at 2.6 ounces, not to mention safely locked both folded and unfolded thanks to a unique ambidextrous Snap Lock mechanism that’s actuated using your thumb (at which point the blade can be swung 180° open; see second image). The handle is still comfortable and functional despite its minimal profile, and the narrow overall design combined with a clip lets this knife double as a money clip. Available in both a straight edge and one with triple point serrations.
