CRKT Minimalist Cleaver
The packaging was simple but very nice. It was a green CRKT small box that had the brand written in white. Sturdy cardboard and very satisfying to open.

Piranah Mini Bodyguard Switchblade
is model is the mini bodyguard and if you take a look at that, it's simply an absolute gorgeous knife might be the only blue knife that I actually own. So it's blue and black, and this is a colored aluminum. The handles on this - and it just is just incredible - and you see piranha on there, and this is a knife that is made in the United States - it's actually made in Idaho and let's take a look at it, it's it's a push-button automatic knife, so you've pushed That button and it pops right out like that and it's got a two and three-quarter inch blade and it's six and a half inches overall length, and you see it's partially serrated and it looks like it's the little type of blade on that absolutely gorgeous got the Pocket clip and that's made out of titanium, and this is a tip-up carriage

Handle

CRKT Minimalist cleaver
Outer layer of handle wears thin.
The outer layer of the handle is so thin that it is worn through in multiple spots straight from the seller. It gives the handle of the knife a very shop-worn appearance right out of the box. It makes it look like someone has used the handle portion of the knife for a long time.

Material

CRKT Minimalist cleaver
Good stuff, but room to improve
The design is killer. Potential to be one of the safest camping and survivalist knives one could get for its size. Two downsides I see: -Bead-blast finish is nice, but prevents the spline from being effectively used as a striker for ferrous rods. A quick run over the back with a sanding bit on my dr...

Durability

CRKT Minimalist cleaver
Great little knife. Would make a great gift.
Great little knife. Comes razor sharp. Sheath is secure but if I comes loose I will just heat the plastic and push together to make it tighter again. Highly recommended, especially for under $30. Also very small so keep that in mind.
