Moved to the Blades, Bows and Tools forum, for discussion.

If you want to sell, however, please post in the Marketplace.

I have a few.
Not the best, but for $30 and under?
They are hard to beat

Save your dollars and get a decent knife. See above.

have had one since somewhere around 1992ish as a daily carry. no complaints and like the design. Lost it for a couple of weeks and bought a benchmade (the only way I could figure out how to find the CRKT was to buy a new one). I like the locking mechanism on the benchmade better. Actually carry the benchmade now since it is a little smaller (not a dis to the CRKT).

Iíve added the Kizer Mini Sheep Dog to my EDC rotation. Great knife for the price. Itís now part of the mini Griptilian, Bugout, and Pardue 530 rotation. CRKT hasnít been in the list for years.

I have a few CRKTs. I don’t consider any of them junk. I have this knife, and easily flipped it open 1000s of times. Still smooth as ever and takes a razor sharp blade easily.

Not junk at all. You don't need to break the bank to get a quality knife. I am very fond of many of the ones I own. Especially the M16.

I don't buy junk.

I own over 200 folders and 30 of them are CRKTs.

My favorites for varying reasons include:

the Carson M21-04G,
the Ikoma Fossil,
the Ochs Terrestrial,
the Onion Eros
the Tighe Tac 2 (Converted Auto),
the Williams Otanashi Noh Ken,
the Carter Jettison and
the Crawford/Kasper Folder.

I also have an outstanding order for a Caswell Provoke, the soon to be released "budget" version of the Morphing Karambit and I'm also thinking about buying the Jumbones, the new 5" version of the Crossbones.

So, you could say that I am a CRKT "fan."

I have many CRKT knives. One is waiting in my mailbox as I type this. Some of their real cheap knives are not very good quality but if you use your head most of them are pretty good.
