    CRKT Elishewitz Horus

    When I saw that this model is being discontinued, I had to jump off the fence and get my first Elishewitz. It's a 3.25" blade, and 7.125" opened. Weight is 4.6 oz.



    The handle is a combination of some kind of bowling-ball polymer and zytel. The Elishewitz logo is on the gold blade insert.



    The blade is a bit complicated, but very stout and razor sharp. It's my first combination plain/serrated knife.



    Here you can see the liner lock holding the blade. On the back, near the pivot is a solid thumb-lock you can deploy as a secondary locking mechanism for security. For those leery of liner-locks, this partly overcomes the objection.

    Impressions: This is also my first CRTK knife with their Outburst assisted opening mechanism, which I wanted to try. Wow. Give the robust thumb stud a nudge and it fires open fast with a solid "chock!" and locks like a vault. This one meets my standards for quality.

    Balance is excellent. The clip is nice - not too tight or loose, and well made. It carries the knife in the point-down orientation and not reversible. No knife is perfect, and the lack of clip arrangement options is a minus here, as is the complexity of the modified-tanto grind.

    If you're a knife junkie like me, consider adding one of these to your collection while they're still available. Shop smart and you can find them under $40. It's a cool-looking knife with a superb assisted open that makes an easy EDC. My Ti-Lite 4" now has some competition when I'm selecting a companion to take on outings.

    I've been eyballin' the plain edge Elishewitz Anubis for a while now. I have a couple CRKTs and love the aesthetics of the Elishewitz series. I'm not a fan of tanto or combo edges for use but they sure look nice!

    Enjoy!!!
