    Too bad the Snafu is too big or I might buy it. I haven’t had much love for the CKFs I have held.

    Hopefully they can get a Rassenti integral right since Spyderco sure can’t. (Flame retardant suit already on guys)

    Hey look a Ti frame lock flipper!! Those are beyond uncommon and since it comes from Russia it should be super easy to send in for work..I think I'll take two.

    My only CKF experience this far is the Fif23 and it was a pretty great experience. Came with a bunch of spare hardware and I even got a second set of scales on the exchange.

    I’m stoked for the SNAFU 2.0 and I think it will outdo the paysan. I’m a sucker for integrals and big knives.

    I really like the design because I'm a boring person. However it's too expensive for what it is.

    Ti integral is not cheap. And compare to something like Spydefco Paysan or CRK at $500 I think the price is pretty reasonable since CKF quality is superior than others brands in the market. The fit and finish and action is easily compete to 2k custom.

    I have tried to stick with G10 / Carbon Fiber scales...

    however, knowing my weakness for all things Russian, I will end up with one of these...

    p.s. I also have a great weakness for Spyderco, ZT, and many other fine U.S. brands as well... (whew)

    IF only CKF had made this in a 3.5” Blade version.....I would have been all Over it!

    That would be the perfect pocket knife.
    One can only hope they make the 3.5” version of the Snafu.......One can Dream, lol.

    It’s a non-starter for me for sure. Almost a 4” Blade, and it’s for sure a 4” Blade if you’re in a state that has a 4” illegal carry and the cops measure it.

    I really like everything about the CKF Snafu 2.0....except the practically 4” Blade and 5.5oz. My Shiro F3R would push this out my pocket everyday

    @"Havoc" I live in Texas so big knives, daggers, autos, ... all ok!

    A daily EDC 3.5" snafu would be killer tho.
  12. Blade length is a straight linear measurement, cutting edge isn’t (it follows the actual edge). A deep belly creates additional length of the cutting edge.

    My tracking # says it'll be at my house on Monday! I'm assuming they brought them to the Vegas show and shipped from the US maybe. 1 week from Russia would be amazingly fast! Or my tracking # is just wrong.

    I love it when a Canadian maker/designer does not even manage (or try to) to sell his product to his core and formerly faithful fanbase.
    Oh yeah Rassenti is a bigshot knifemaker that auctionsell on IG now, so why would he care about us canucks peons eh

    Yep I'm bitter (and slightly jealous)

    Have a custom SNAFU 2 with damascus blade and desert floor pattern scales that is a little too fancy for EDC. Ordered this for the M390 blade, lock bar insert and what looks like better action than my custom.

    Thank you. That was a “duh” moment for me. Had I actually given it some thought it would’ve been evident.
