Just got my CRKT Point Guard (large, plain edge, and thanks Anthony Cheeseboro!). I don't normally care for liner locks, but I felt like I needed one in my collection. See, I've sold off all my other ones. That includes a CRKT large Kasper Folding Fighter. That knife opens very smoothly, but I had some problems with it: it's very thick and heavy for pocket carry (I nicknamed it the Brick); the blade isn't really long enough for what that knife "wants to be," and the scales were very slippery. The Point Guard solves all those problems. The scales (Zytel, like the KFF) have nicely machined grooves that make it very comfortable. The size and shape are very agreeable; think BM 730 length and BM 710 thickness. It passed the spine whack test with and without the LAWKS engaged, and the factory edge is quite sharp. The only things keeping this knife from perfection (and to be fair, I'll consider the price range) are (1) the tip-down carry--but that's my opinion; (2) the bead blast; (3) the thumb disk (show me the Spydie hole!). I like the knife enough that I'm looking for info on a "real" Crawford Point guard.
