Crescent Pocket Knives

Will One of These Crescent Pocket Knives Become Your Next EDC?

For some of us, a pocket knife could well be the only tool that we have on hand all day, every day. For that reason, we like our every-day-carry (EDC) to be strong, sharp, and safe. With that in mind, the Crescent line of pocket knives makes a great case for becoming the one tool that we always have on hand.

Strong, Sharp, Sleek, Safe

The Crescent line of Pocket Knives includes two different blade and handle options. You can choose the heavy-duty, gray wash D2 steel blade or the 5Cr15MoV steel blade. Both blade steel options feature either a drop-point blade or harpoon blade style.

The drop-point blade design gives you good tip strength and blade durability for a variety of cutting applications. The harpoon-style blade design gives you some extra leverage for cutting and slicing. Both designs make great choices for an EDC knife.

The D2 blade steel options feature an anodized aluminum handle that provides an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Meanwhile, the two knives with 5Cr15MoV steel blades feature a composite handle.

All of the Crescent Pocket Knives feature a smooth action heavy-duty ball bearing system that provides fast and easy blade deployment with the help of the finger-flipper release. None of these knives feature an assisted-open spring. A sturdy liner lock keeps the blade locked in place.

We did also notice that, where many new knives’ liner locks feel really stiff, these have that nice broken-in feel. The liner lock worked easily to unlock the blade one-handed.

Crescent Pocket Knives

Crescent shipped all of their pocket knives extremely sharp. After giving my wrist the old out-of-the-box sharpness test, I can now confirm that it looks like I’ve done some manscaping on the top of my arm.

All of the Crescent Pocket Knives also feature a deep-pocket, low-profile carry clip that doesn’t make a big scene about the fact that you’re carrying a knife. Unfortunately, you’re relegated to a single carry position: tip up. The clips can’t be repositioned. A small issue, to be sure, but some folks might prefer the option. We didn’t mind.

Pricing

The Crescent Pocket Knives seem really reasonably-priced. The 3-1/4″ composite-handled drop-point model retails for $17.99, while the harpoon design goes for $19.99. The premium-steeled aluminum-handled models check out at $10 more. You can pick up the 3-1/4″ drop-point blade for $27.99, or the 3-1/2″ harpoon-style blade retails for $29.99.

Hey Chris, Great review. I have the 3.5″ Aluminum Harpoon & 3.25″ Composite Drop Point, both of which were given to me as gifts. I usually don’t carry “cheap” knives due to the shotty quality that such knives usually have. In general: you get what you pay for. That being said, these knives might be cheap in price point, but they’re certainly not “cheap” knife quality. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at just how well these knives feel and perform. While they may not have the top-of-the-line steel that’s used in expensive heirloom pocketknives, they’re both very good blades. Plus, I’m… Read more »
