These make nice gifts, and woot! appears to have a million of them.
I grabbed one of this a few weeks ago from Woot; very pleased with them! I'm tempted to get some for friends!

Well, not any more....
This is a nice little all-purpose knife, I bought it during the last Woot-Off. It's been in service cutting wires and cables, and I'm buying more today. I don't really need it, mine is still plenty sharp, but always good to have extras, especially at this price!
how do you close this knife once you open it? can't find the button to close it.
Love this knife! Got it at a Woot! off not too long ago. I got the non-serrated one. It opens very easily and fits nicely in my small pockets! Perfect knife for that woman in your life!

There is no button. I don't have mine handy right now so I'm going from memory. There is a metal tab near the hinge in the slot where the blade goes. User your thumb to push the tab to the side and then start to fold the knife down.
If you look at the 2nd picture here: http://www.crkt.com/Pazoda
You can see the tab I'm talking about. It has the serrations.
It's a simple mechanism. Flip it upside down (blade up) and look where the blade meets the case (the pivot point). There's a ridged spot there where you put your thumb and push to the side. Don't cut your thumb off.
I gave away several of these as gifts this past Xmas. Great little knives.
This knife is junk. I bought some in a woot off a while back and was very disappointed. My first CRKT experience and it was a bad one! The blade on one does not lock. I pulled another one out of the package and it seems to work, but this shows some poor quality control. They are Chinese, in case anyone was wondering. I usually buy any knife woot has. I'll be passing on this one, again.

There is a warranty with them.
This is a common issue on cheaper frame-lock knives. Considering it's a $15 knife this is not unexpected. It should lock properly if you push the lock tab further to cover the blade hinge.
Can't really judge a brand based on the lowest end of its line. It actually is better than most other knives in the same price range. (China made Buck and Schrade anyone?)
This is good value though, I'm getting a couple as back-ups to keep in my Car and my BOB. (back-ups to my EDC Spyder folder and my fixed blades Ka-Bar and Mora) But I wouldn't really depend on it as my main knife.
bought these a while ago...
blade is pretty damn good for 8 bucks. mine is still pretty sharp though it may need a sharpening soon
I got one of these recently. For $8 you can't really beat it. It's a nice size, decent blade, seems pretty sturdy, lifetime warranty, etc.
If you want to get picky, the locking mechanism isn't the greatest, and the blade could be sharper (although sharpening it yourself could fix that).
Like I said though, for the money you really can't go wrong.
Ha! Check it out on You Tube. I had the same question when I got one a few Woot!-Offs ago. I was giving it as a gift to my husband, but of course I had to check it out first! Well, I opened the knife and could NOT figure out how to close it. I wrapped the empty box! But I did find a few videos on YouTube that were helpful in the end.
It's really got a nice feel to it. A little larger than my husband usually likes in a knife, but he said it's growing on him.
Bought three of these last time around and gave them away as Christmas gifts, they were a HUGE hit. They're very well made especially for this price. Now I have to get some for myself though.
Nice little knives. I bought two last time because I wanted something a little smaller than my Kershaw Vapor that I was carrying.
These CRKT Pazodas are nice and sharp, like the Vapor, but these are really a bit too small to feel right in your hand. Also, the blade is not heavy enough, even after loosening, to flick open nicely, so I've returned to carrying the Kershaw.
Another thing... when I tried to disassemble the Pazoda, the screws stripped. They are nice for gifts and for purses, priced right, and nobody will laugh at you for carrying a CRKT... good brand wherever they're made.

Wouldn't that just make the size issue worse though?

That is a man's way of saying Ya aint getting that back lol ,;)

Just depends on the size of "what" you talking about lol.
Got one of these not long ago from Woot. It is now my everyday carry. Easy to use, nice deep pocket, and very sharp. Well worth the money.
Bought one of these the last time they were on sale. Best $8 I've ever spent! Razor sharp, great design, clip is stout and lets the WHOLE knife be concealed in your pocket. PERFECT size -- not too small, and not bulky in your pocket. I've got a handful of other knives, but this one gets carried all day, every day and comes in very handy all day long. PERFECT!!!
More other knives!
Awesome knife, I have one on me every day, it's come in handy several times (cutting everything from christmas wrapping paper to demolishing a siezed caulking cartrige to remove it from the gun, including the huge cylinder of rubber inside)
it locks nice, feels nice, holds the blade very solid, had good action, and even a spring-ball mechanism to help keep the blade in the closed position, which I like over friction setups or the kind with the spring-loaded back that you push to retract near the butt end.
Considering three more for gifts... already bought three for christmas, and I'm happy with the one I gave myself.
Very stylish knife. It is really thin and I love the feel of it when I use it. The black stripe in the handle makes for a great grip. It's also extremely light and easy to carry--you can barely feel that you're carrying it and it doesn't look bulky in your pocket. Great gift. A knife like this could come in handy for anyone. The clip is sturdy but also thin and I've had no trouble clipping it to a pocket. Highly recommend.
Perfect size and I like the thumb hole. Was $8.00 last time on woot, $7.99 today so grab one now!
Just to add to the other positive feedback. I bought 3 for the holidays and everyone came looking great and sharp!
These are solid little knives. Definitely would buy if I needed more!
The blade is just under hand width.
Another +1 here...bought 1 last time. Good knife. Like the size...especially the slimness, and it looks great. A nice classy look. Mine wasnt shaving sharp out of the box like i expect a brand new knife to be...but i remedied that in short order, and its holding a good edge. I may just buy a couple more today
nothing special about the action of the knife -- little too stiff to flip open, straightforward liner lock -- but even tho I have a bunch of bench made and other snazzy knives, this is the only one I carry. it's damn handsome and it's slim and just the right size. my only problem with them is I keep giving them away to friends!
I'll be so glad when we move (less than 2 weeks from now) to Oregon so I can buy knives from woot! I live in NY state now and since woot doesn't want to do it's research I have to put up with them refusing to ship to my zip code because NYC has restrictions. I live in the extreme NW corner of the state along the Canadian border, you can't get any farther away from NYC and still be in NY state. We don't have the restriction that NYC does on knives, but once again upstate NY pays because of the center of the universe(they think they are).
Bought two of these last time woot had them. They're okay for $8, but I definitely wouldn't pay more for them. I put them to the "working in a shipping/receiving department" test. The open frame is nice as it keeps sticky residue from gunking up the works. It's sturdy enough to pry up box staples. I do have a couple of complaints, though. It's rather difficult to open one handed, even with the large thumb hole. The locking mechanism has also stopped locking. At this price, you probably can't do better, but for not a lot more you definitely can. I just ordered a Leatherman Crater c33 to replace it for $14.50 shipped. I'll likely have a comparison review for the next time woot posts these CRKT knives.
Disclaimer: my job is quite demanding on the knives I use, so your mileage may vary.
Echo the comments: good value here. Not the best knife, but very worth the price. I gave away a bunch of these in December and all were very well received.
Most people talk about how nice and tight the lock is on these. You must have gotten a dud. Should have Warranty or Returned the joker.
I have one and gave one as a gift for Christmas. Great knife for the price. I mostly use mine to open packages and shiv co-workers when they act up.
Woot, how about some more Kershaw's and maybe even a SOG?
I'd make sure to pick up a few of these. The blade lock failed after about a month of normal use.
Grabbed this knife a few weeks ago and found myself loving it. All it takes is a quick push and a flick of the wrist to have it snap out and ready to use. I prefer it to my multi-bladed pocket knife for it's sharpness and quick utilization. I can open this with one hand with no problem.
The knife is sharper than I would have thought and has kept it's sharpness so far when I use it to cut into boxes and anything that simply needs cutting.
Have not nicked a finger, and have yet to get it stuck in the cat. Great knife for the price!
These are not illegal in New York, unless you possess them with the intent to injure. The same goes for a 2x4. Wish I knew someone in a different zipcode to order 3 for me.
I've bought a few different knives from Woot! and this is the one I'm carrying now. It replaced a Kershaw that was a little thicker and bulky. I miss the speed assist opening, but really like the sleekness and sturdiness of the CRKT.
The only thing I don't like is how long the clip is. It's great that when in your pocket, the clip goes nearly all the way to the top of the knife so the body of the knife isn't protruding way up, but the clip is so long it goes halfway down my pocket.
Does this knife have flaws? Sure.
Are they worth 8 bucks? Hell yeah.
I bit on these (as many others have) just before Christmas. Gave 2 as gifts, and kept one for myself. I never carried a knife regularly, but this one I have been. Why? Here are some pros:
- VERY thin and compact. You don't even know it's there.
- DEEEEEEEP clip - it sits well within your pocket.
- Nice and sharp (got the non-serated blade).
- Very well made (for the price) - at least the ones I got were!
- Can open and close with one hand. Practice, it gets very easy.
- Can be 'flicked' open if you grasp the blade at the thumb hole.
- Locks TIGHT!
The only complaints I have are:
- The edges of the frame are a bit uncomfortable. If you reach in your pocket while it's there, you scrape/gouge your finger(s) knuckle(s) if you are not careful.
- The finish on the blade will wear off (it's a dark grey coating and is slowly wearing off from the sharpened edge).
- Not much else that come to mind!
So, take this for what it is... a Darn nice knife for 8 bucks. Would be a challenge to find something of this quality at this price. If you expect the same level of quality of a $50 - $100 pocket knife, sure you will find flaws!
