The CRKT Piet 5390 is a light-weight EDC pocket knife, designed by Jesper Voxnaes. Because of its compact size it looks friendly and hardly stands out. You can quickly open the Piet with one hand with the help of the thumb hole. Typical for Voxnaes' design style is the shape of the thumb hole.
To make sure the weight stays as low as possible CRKT used FRN for the handle. This is a light-weight type of plastic. To add solidity to the frame the FRN is enhanced with steel liners on the inside. One of the liners also takes care of the lock when the blade is opened. The blue backspace is in nice contrast with the blade and the handle. You can easily carry it nice and deep inside your pocket with the deep-carry pocket clip.
The CRKT Piet is typical Jesper Voxnaes and typical CRKT at the same time. A succesful cooperation that has found its way to many pockets.

Love this knife but the quality control is poor on this. The blade was going blunt very fast up by the tip and i couldn't figure out why until i looked inside the knife and there were marks on the inside of the backspacer from the blade hitting it. Also the blade was horribly off centre. Took it apart and seems to be ok for now. The blade is very slicy which is good and it takes up very little room in the pocket. Crtk need to up the qc big time .
