About CRKT Drifter
The Drifter G10 is a locking liner folder with black G10 scales and a premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel 2.875" drop point blade in a gray titanium nitride finish. It features an InterFrame build with stainless steel liners and a black stainless steel clip. What makes a good logo knife? It should be afFordable, and it should have some large flat areas on the blade or frame suitable for logo imprinting. So we are very happy to present the Drifter series. They're high-quality Knives that are priced low enough to purchase in quantity, and all have flat areas that are perfect for imprinting by laser or silk screen (you can take them to your local trophy house for personalized engraving).

So far,this little beauty is just what I was looking for.
Very easy to handle,nice grip.
One Knife to Rule Them All
Out of all of the high-end and inexpensive folding knives that I own, this is my favorite. The one I ALWAYS carry with me.
Extremely durable, simple, stays sharp long enough and is super easy to resharpen.
I absolutely love this knife. It will be the first knife that I buy two of.
Good work knife
I've had this knife for several years and it has held up quite well getting beat up at work. the lockup is still good and the blade resharpens easily.
my only complaint is that the pocket clip is tip down only, but for a utilitarian knife it doesn't bother me too much
All the reviews were right
I’m a novice to this field. This was second knife I purchased and very I’m very pleased with this knife. Extremely sharp, great action once used for a few days and great to carry in my pocket without using the clip. Highly recommended from my perspective. My first knife was a mini presidio 2 From Benchmade. I carry this all over because it’s inexpensive and overall a great… read more knife.
Great First Knife
This was one of my first CRKT knives. and I loved it! Then I was introdiced to a real knife with more quality steel and I realized there was WAY better out there. It doesn't keep an edge to save its life so be ready to sharpen often also the blade wants to get loose after a while so make sure you have a star tool around to tighten it every once in a while. If the steel was better… read more though I would have another so fast. Do love the way it fit in my hand and how convenient it was!
Great EDC knife, but...
I absolutely love the drifter for a quick EDC. For the price, you really can't beat it. No play in the blade, decent metal and great size for EDC. I have used mine a lot and have had no issues. Some things could be improved, such as the pocket clip, but again, for the price...
All that being said, there are a lot of great EDC knives out there and you should carry what you… read more like. I wouldn't look at this knife to replace anything like a delica 4 or whatever.
Ok little knife
Big value on this knife. Not great steel, so be ready to sharpen it frequently. Tip down only carry. China. For the money, still a decent knife.
For a few more $$ you can get the Ontaio Rat 2. Better steel, made in Taiwan, and tip up or down carry.
Great little knife. Probably the one I grab most in the morning. Sharpens easily. Not the best edge retention but at this price point it's tough to beat.
Awesome little knife
I loved everything about this knife except for the fact you can't carry the knife tip-up. Other than that it’s an awesome knife for the money.
Good knife for the money
Not a really expensive knife but if your someone who uses their knife hard or loses knifes easily this knife locks up tight and works hard used on a farm for 2 summers cutting roots and sandy stuff equipment all day long and worked great , sharpens very easy.
I love the knife but too small
Great affordable knife with a nice action but is too small for everyday use. Steal chips easily
Nice slick looking folder for the price
Blade is centered, good lock up, comes out smooth and at a decent speed. I do have issue that the pocket clip rides high and presents the sharp edge of the frame. Meaning you're gonna scratch the knife, yourself or, something expensive somewhere down the line if your not careful. For the price if you need something to give as a gift or daily I think its great, if your a knife guy… read more I'd probably pass it over.
Blade not sharp and bad clip design
First the positives: It's cheap, it's a nice size, frame lock is great (good lock engagement and zero blade play), and opens quickly, easily and consistently with the thumbstuds. Now on to what I didn't like...
1) The blade is not sharp out of the box. I can run my finger along the blade and not get cut.
2) The clip (while it looks great) is tip-down only and is made… read more of really thick metal. It is VERY tight, to the point that I have trouble clipping it on some of my pockets.
A solid knife hampered by a couple key issues that limit my carrying it.
I own many others that compete for daily pocket space with this knife, and although I put others in the rotation, I always come back to this one. It's light, holds an edge well, grey TiNi finish on blade holds up very very well, I and it has very grippy g10 scales. It is tip down carry, which I prefer. I have found it to a perfect size for EDC, big enough for nearly any chore, and… read more yet small enough you don't notice it in the pocket at all. Thumb jimping, blade shape, and ease of one handed opening and closing are all excellent. Open design is easy to clean. Recessed steel liners are flush with the G10 scales, a nice touch on a budget knife. I prefer it over others I have that cost several times more. I have a collection of around 100 knives, nearly half are folders, including a few customs. This was my first CRKT product when I got it. I now have another, and a Blade HQ wishlist full of their other knives.
