    How are you liking it so far? What's the review? I'm *REALLY* kicking around getting one.

    Just got this Trevor Burger Custom EXK CFL. Compared to the EXK Plus with carbon fiber, the blade is slightly thicker; the handle is thinner; and it weighs just 0.4 oz more.

    I’ve got one of the CFL’s and love it. Which one do you like the action on more?

    So far they’re identical in opening and in the lockbar release, with no lock stick on either. The Plus drops more freely, but I just got the CFL today, so its closing action may well change as I use it.

    Great knives! I love the form factor. It fits in a watch pocket, has a <3-inch blade, but fits my XL hand well.

    Both came with the blade fairly dull, which is my only real complaint about them. I got Josh at Razor Edge Knives to reprofile my Plus and sharpen it. I’ll probably do the same with the CFL.

    Thanks. I’ve been after a Plus for some time but they’re hard to come by.

    I was lucky to get on his books and ordered it directly from Trevor. It quickly became my favorite small knife.

    Might not be a big deal to you Americans who can get everything, but I'm super stoked about finally finding one.

    If you don't mind me asking - did you get this from Prometheus direct? I've recently become aware of these and have signed onto their waiting list.... mahalo!

    Cool, I envy you, something I will never experience. A CRK starts quite aways north of $600 bucks up here in the Union of Socialist Republic of Canuckistan.

    Well it's ~460 Euros here, so 680 Canadian Dubloons (520 American). I'm looking forward to getting it, especially since it's anodized and looks nicer (in my opinion) than the regular plain Ti. I will post pictures when it arrives on Tuesday.

    /Edit: Want to add that price was one of the reasons why I haven't gotten too excited about the CRK's over here. The only version that I like its the Inlay Large 21's which are like 600 US / 800 Canadian and the Large Inkosis with Inlay are 660 US / 875 Canadian. And they aren't really that much of a grail or that interesting or exciting to me to warrant that much money. The Zaan with the milling on both sides and the blade shape, and that it was the most reasonably priced in my opinion, made me take the plunge to at least try one.
