The CEO from CRKT remains one of the community’s favorite choices for modern gents pocket knife carry today. It has a understated elegance with a slim and sleek design that belies its highly capable blade. And while CRKT has already leveled up the CEO previously with an upgrade to D2 tool steel, they're outdone themselves with a collaboration with Blade HQ by releasing a premium version of this EDC folding knife featuring high-quality CPM-S35VN stainless steel.

Now outfitted with S35VN, the 3.1" flat-ground blade on this version of the knife enjoys excellent edge retention. The versatility of the slightly-upswept blade means you're going to need that added level of performance as you begin to use this daily driver of a knife to accomplish more of your tasks.

The other unique thing about this edition of the blade is the addition of lightweight blue canvas micarta handle scales. The unique color scheme denotes this knife's special status as a Blade HQ exclusive, and the use of the material helps keep the knife light in your pockets as it weighs just 1.97 ounces. But whether you show off that bright blue handle is up to you: the S35VN CEO retains its right-handed tip-down deep carry pocket clip for low-profile, discreet carry all day.

If you've been on the fence so far about getting yourself a CRKT CEO, you should spring for this premium S35VN version of the knife. It's a fitting addition to an already great and ergonomic everyday carry knife and it should be near the top of your list for knife pickups this year. Check it out today on Blade HQ and buy one for yourself before it sells out.
