Wow, that's pretty neat. I can see the value in that for a hard used knife.
Make a good Christmas present.

couldn't see this earlier... I like the CRKT knives - didn't at first, but after using one for awhile (it sat in the closet for a long time at first) it has grown on me.

I have bought a few and I like them for economy/EDC, they are certainly better blades than Gerber.

Here is what I have in my pocket today.



The top is an "Ignitor" a really simple assist open. The bottom is a "Fulcrum", another interesting mechanism.

I daily carry a Kershaw in Sandvik steel, this one, and it is a great knife that is easy to keep shave sharp.

Is it a lock blade,? Unfortunately the one by Kershaw is not, but does self sharpen.

damn hard to follow you around
Yes it is a lock blade but it has a weird rear lock, 2 handed unless you use something to push on the blade to help close it after releasing the lock.
Will grab a few pics and post them up later if interested.

Does it make a good emergency bag backup/chore knife?

first guess sure for cutting work, i think it would snap if I used it to baton fire wood though
I think it will be my pocket everyday knife for a while, most of the chores it needs to handle are small but crucial tasks like cutting the top of my twix wrapper in a nice uniform manner. Plus those kettle chip bags are a mother to open nicely

Hopefully my chore knife will get here from Smithy in a couple of weeks.

That's the first knife in a while that has made me perk up my ears and take notice. I'd be very interested in your thoughts now that you have it.
