Wouldn't really call this a 'review' exactly. It's more 'random observations from a knife noob' than an actual review. A 'review' implies that I (kinda) know what I'm talking about and I don't. Not about knives anyway. I still haven't been able to bring myself to carry it yet. I'm too much in the adoration phase of our relationship. LOL Did any of you also experience this with your first CRK, as in, this-knife-is-just-too-damn-nice-to-carry? If so, how long did it last? I'm keeping it in my briefcase (inside its box) for the time being but I'm really too busy at work right now to mess with it. Off work, though, that's quality time. I've been opening/closing the blade about 50-60 times every evening and it's incredibly smooth now. I mean, it still takes a little effort to flick it completely open without a little wrist help but, WTH, I've got the thumb muscle memory now to open it smoothly in one continuous motion to get that metallic ca-chunk, like the cylinder of a Colt revolver locking into place. Damn. If it's wrong to be 'aroused' by that sound, I don't want to be right.
