CRKT makes some really great spring assisted knives. Most of their knives use the Outburst technology, which is their name for their proprietary spring system. It is good. Real good. The Notorious, designed by McGinnis who is a student at NC State University, is a great new addition to CRKT’s line of spring assist knives. This knife has a great blade shape, a very comfortable handle, and it works like a charm.
