Really??? You come to the CRK room to talk up a new Strider, and talk down a new CRK
I wouldn't own a Strider if it was gave to me. Do a little reading about the owners of Strider.
Yeah, Strider....being Ex-Army, I don't care if his knives prepared your lunch for you. Anyone that is in the service or prior service shouldn't own one. Too each their own though. For me, when you get your start with lies and continue so. If he sleeps at night. That's fine. Sorry.
People may have opinions of Chris Reeve....but he has brought way more to the knife community with his index finger than M.S. ever has.
Who cares or wants to hear about Strider knives ? I know I don't....
Anyone know for a fact that the pivot bushing is being done away with. The new washer tabs might fit into the ti or a pivot assembly to insure that thy don't rotate when the blades opens & closes. I'm rambling....
I will never own anything made or designed by Mickey Ray Burger.
I think it's great that Strider Knives are seeking to improve their products, just like I applaud Mr. Reeve for doing the same. Improvement across the board only makes everyone better off. My thoughts are that after a quarter century of using the pivot bushing, Mr. Reeve knows the good&bad about it. As it appears he's deciding to move away from it, I would think he's doing that in the quest to improve his product, overall. As cool as the pivot bushing is, there's pretty much no room for error, while a more traditional pivot does allow for more micro-adjustments. I prefer CRKs over Striders(or Hinderers while we're discussing other knives, FWIW) because they offer more features I look for in a knife. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate some of the features offered on other products (would love to see Mr. Reeve remove the swedges leaving more steel at the tip for added strength), but I look at the knife as the sum of its parts, not just a single feature.
Apparently the lockbar stabilizer prevents the lockbar from rolling towards the back of the handle as well. I was unaware of that.
So, I was wrong.
They seem to be good changes to me though I liked the bushing. I guess I'll find out in ^ months b/c I ordered the 25 this morning Now for the wait. I've heard Strider's CS can be a real PITA
