I just handled and saw the new CRKT foresight yesterday and I gotta say, it was slick.
The ball bearing system really opens the blade pretty quick with the flipper. Haven't bought a CRKT in awhile but I am a Onion fan so this will probably be my next one.

The Kershaw Cryo II with the bigger blade will be purchased as well when it is released next month.

Nice! I have CTS 20CP as well (I think that's what I see anywayz). It takes and keeps an edge for a good while.

I've been carrying the CTS XHP lately.

Great EDC knifes.

Speaking of cheap, I bought a Kershaw Leek framelock blem. I love this little thing! So much so that I might get the S30V G10 version for a little more traction. I also bought two pink Leeks, a ZT 0350TS and 0700, but those were all wedding presents.

giving gifts

I have two grown sons of the girlfriend.

They know nothing about knives.

This is what I do.

First, I bought used leatherman tools, cleaned them up and gave them as gifts last year.

Second, I went to Big 5 and purchased inexpensive, but quality folders by ka bar, a couple of different models. Ka bar does farm out some knives to Taiwan. These were established designs, not cataloged, made in Red China for Big 5. I tested each one, lubed and sharpened on my Spyderco system. Got out new, inexpensive leather sheaths. They go as gifts.

The goals are quite simple: 1. have inexpensive quality knives available if shtf and I am around one of the kid's cars or home; 2. give a tool that is used even if the kids never take a class in knife fighting. One son keeps a leatherman on his desk and asserts that he uses it nearly every day.

I learned my lesson about giving expensive knives. My dad was at Pearl Harbor. I gave him a commemorative ka bar to honor him - and he had no use for it.

I have also purchased some Mora knives which are fixed blade. I have sharpened them as well, although Mora does a very adequate job. At $15 a piece and 1/4 hour of inspection and sharpening, you have a very decent knife.

The girlfriend gets more expensive leathermen. She even received a pink mini Griptillian from Benchmade. After seeing a leatherman in action in house repairs, she has become comfortable in using one.

I can't think of too many people who couldn't use a leatherman or a decent pocket knife to keep in the car. This would include a nephew (I am sure that my brother never ever bought his a knife or a firearm as a gift).

So, when you construct your list of what to buy, don't forget the happy child or grandchild who will always remember that you gave him/her the first knife or leatherman.

today

received two Mora 840s. Under $28 total, delivered. I will rework them on my Spyderco sharpener. Although I prefer the Mora Robust, this knife received more first place choices in a poll about Mora knives on some site so I just had to see them.

Ok. Here goes. Mora still makes wood scale knives at 3x the price and higher. I do not know the material used in the handle/scales and sheath. It is like the material used in the Glock knife sheaths.

My 76 year old mentor and I recently purchased Model 81 Glocks. He spent a full day modifying his Glock and the locals raved about it. I merely sharpened mine to my satisfaction. Most people wouldn't be walking around the woods with a Glock strapped on them before shtf. Conversely, if available, most people would be taking the woodland stroll with a knife like the Mora.

Well the Mora 840 fills a non Rambo/Grizzly Adams/Chuck Norris niche in an outdoor knife. It is light weight, sharp right from the factory, has a secure sheath, will do the meals, clean fish, dress a deer, cut rope, sharpen sticks. If you want to do the old thing of jumping a deer with a knife, use a Glock, Ka-bar or Ontario fixed blade.

Remember the adage that if something is too heavy, you are not likely to carry it or have it with you when shtf.
