This is a review of CRKT 7353 E-Lock Starlight Combination Edge Knife


The CRKT E Lock knife is billed at the knife of the future. It is considerably lightweight for its size ( only 3 oz) and boasts a smooth one handed opening mechanism through its patented high tech lock.

Visually, its a standout with its signature CNC machined starburst.

Custom knife maker, Allen Eishewitz designed the E-Lock starlight to show off his patent pending E lock system; a stainless steel; rocker bar with a powerful spring holds the blade rigidly in place with a steel on steel lock up, until you depress it to fold the blade. The lock is positive, secure and simple. Opening is easy with either hand due to dual checked thumb studs.

The Pivot screw is a 4 point design with teflon bushings which makes for a smooth action. The handles is T6 aluminum in a natural bead blast finish. The handles are mated to a brushed aluminum backspacer at the spine and assembled with Torx® screws.

This knife sports a modified clip point blade in AUS-8 stainless steel with anon reflective ceramic bead blast finish. For an all metal knife, the grip is very good, because of deep finger choil on the spine and a final pinky choil near the butt.

The pocket clip is an Elishewitz custom clip, made of grey Teflon® plated stainless steel, with it’s trademark 6 drilled holes. The clip is mounted high on the knife for low pocket carry.


Feedback and Overview


Actual Customer Feedback:

“Great knife, so lightweight, i forgot i had it on me at the airport, they thought i was insane.”
-anonymous user from


I got this knife as a birthday gift from my mother, so I may be a little biased, but it’s my favorite knife at the moment. Its so light I don’t notice it all and I keep it wicked sharp. It’s cleaned a few fish and done an admirable job.
