What is a kinve? Is that the new thing?

Time to learn all about CRKT

Don’t need… But want… CRKT are by far the best knives I’ve used (and sold) in this price range. I’ve had expensive knives too, which are great for looking at. But my CRKTs are the ones that have never let me down!

The Mini My Tighe with Veff serations is the small version of the My Tighe, which is my EDC. I absolutely love this knife. The quality is great although i do have to occasionally disassemble the knife to clean the lint and grime out. Im picking up the Onion and the K.I.S.S straight blade to see how they are.

So In for 2!!!

Now its time to

What’s the diff between the 1093 and the 1093C? Looks exactly the same on all points.

Thanks for the spot!

According to Woot Staff the offer was was included inadvertently and has been removed.

Columbia River Knive & Tool continues to use crap steel on their knives.


Cheap steel used on low-end knives.

Avoid as they will be butter knives after a few uses and you will spend more time putting an edge on them than actually using them.

And while purchasing these knives my be legal in most jurisdictions, it’s good to know if you can carry them or not.

Some jurisdictions limit blade lengths to 3" or less:

CRKT K405KXP Onion Ripple - 3.125" Blade CHARCOAL
I purchased one of these and it is terrible. Really difficult to extend the blade. My wife cant use it at all as it about rips the skin off your finger to open it. Maybe mine is a defect, I don’t know but I wont buy another one of this type from CRKT. I’ll stick with the Kershaws as they are inexpensive and pretty good knives for the price.

Not all of them are crap. The K405KXP is Acuto+, the 5340 & 5341 are 12C27 Sandvik, and the 6520 & 6521 are 8Cr13MoV.

I’d avoid the 6611N and the K.I.S.S Assist though.

I just wish the clip on the CRKT knives could be moved to the other end (easier to handle that way).

Acuto, that’s a cute name for a 440 steel. The CRKT Eros I have has that blade and it’s held up nicely. For the money I’d still go with my Ontario Rat 2 for a great value EDC. The quickness and smoothness or the Ontario Rat 2 is just unbelievable. The FRN handle is also much nicer compared to the Ripple or even the Eros for that matter.

Wish I knew. I tried to Google it and failed miserably.

I bought both…I’ll found out when they get here.

My last two CRKT knives have been crap. Blades that won’t hold their edge and locks that won’t stay locked. They don’t make them like they used to…

The “C” is listed as a “clampack” so I’m assuming it is retail-packaged in one of those hard-to-open-without-the-knife-sealed-within clear hard plastic clamshells.

Otherwise, in my experience these knives are packaged in small cardboard boxes.

(In other words, don’t pick the “C” one!)

I believe the difference is in the packaging.

C = clampack = something PITA to open

Acuto is a decent steel with a fairly high carbon content, but the 12C27 Sandvik has a low carbon content, about equal to AUS-6

8Cr13MoV is a decent mid-range steel.

Definitely avoid the 420J2 and the AUS4 steel knives.


Both are low-carbon steels (about 0.30-0.40%%) and carbon is what gives SS its ability to hold an edge as well as wear resistance.

8Cr13MoV has about 2x the Carbon of either 420J2 and AUS4
