All are great specimens; solid lockup, centered blades, good assist. Gonna do a little Blur surgery in a bit
Nice bounty!



Here's what happens when I get tipped off to something cool on the bay....

I wish Chris would run his S35VN that hard. My Zaan in S35VN is one of the softest knives I own. That edge rolls when you look at it too hard.

I agree, I'd be thrilled if mine was 61.

Kind of a tradeoff. You get too hard, and the blade chips too easisy. You get to soft, and it rolls.

S35VN should handle 60-61 just fine.

I understand the trade off but 60-61 is not where the chipping will be bad. 62-64 probably will. I understand Chris does this to keep his collectors from *****ing about chipped edges, but I'd really like a knife that could field dress a deer and keep going. Just a few ribs is all it takes to roll CRK's s35 so bad it will no longer cut. My buck vanguard in 420hc handles it just fine, as do my Lusk customs in CPM154. Its pretty sad when a $70 Buck in 420hc is outperforming a $425 dollar CRK in S35vn. Not only outperforming it, flat out smoking it.

The whole reason CRK went to this steel was to save wear on tools, but in the end it is an inferior steel to S30V. For $425 you should at least get decent steel. S35vn could be an ok steel if Chris didn't leave it so soft. I carry my 'Zaan every day and have used it hard, the steel is just not good at all. I continue to carry it due to the excellent craftsmanship and fit, but I always carry a backup knife in good steel. Since I am a user more than a collector, I will never own another CRK in this steel.

In the spirit of the thread

Nice knife!

I prefer the 30 myself, and have been grabbing them when I have a chance.

I'll be honest, my Blurs and Leeks (the ones in 14C28N) all hold an edge better than my Zaan. I love the knife, am not at all impressed with the steel. It seems to be on par with my CRKT Aus 8 and low end Gerber/Winchester beaters. I occasionally debate selling it at a loss, but it is a beautifully made knife.

I have been on a Spyderco kick lately. Before that it was Benchmade. I only have my Mini Grip left and have since sold all my Benchmades. So far this year I have bough:

Ka-Bar Dozier folder
Spyderco Dragonfly
Spyderco Delica 4 FFG x2

I've been on a Kershaw spree lately, but the Spyderco Southard is calling my name.... I'll probably wait til production catches up with demand though, maybe the price will fall to $200 or so.

Something I'm almost ashamed of. It's a Boker, it's AUS8, and it's really, really nice!

Boker Burnley Kwaiken, just came out a month or so ago I believe. Great fit and finish, IKBS, very slim and comfortable, nice lines. Solid lock up, no blade play, opens fast and smooth. First thing I did when I took it out of the box was to take it apart and hit the frame with the bench grinder, exposing the blade tang to be used as a flipper. Neat little mod that takes all of five minutes, and greatly improves the usability of the knife. I'll clean it up tomorrow with some 400 grit. The blade was perfectly centered when I got it, it's just a hair off after taking it apart, but I should be able to adjust it back to center without any problems once I'm done cleaning up the frame where I modded it.

Never thought I'd spend ninety bucks on AUS8, but it's well worth it!
