    Is there a dealer who has these new variants that were to be available this month? I see that multiple dealers have the flat earth Professional Soldiers already.

    Hadn't seen any around. I ordered a plain edge pacific seven weeks and four days ago still no word.

    Have you heard from the factory regarding your Pacific?

    Not yet. Been nine weeks and a day. I figure it'll be exactly twelve weeks. Everything about CRK is precise:p

    I keep looking around and nothing has popped up. I've got to imagine they will be popular. Hope it's soon.

    Part of me wants to see pictures, and part of me fears that my vow not to buy another knife in 2017 will vaporize!

    I'm willing to take the risk. Please post lotsa pics. This is an epic knife in my mind. Shoulda happened years ago, but all things come to those who wait....

    They had the plain edged versions on display at the Oregon Knife Collectors show last week and they look awesome. I did not get any pics but I did place an order for a FDE Pacific:)

    It arrived!! Sharp as a lightsaber. Darker than the older examples I've seen and man it feels good in hand.

    It came with a new style black spec-ops sheath

    I'm going to use an older Ranger green Combat master sheath. I removed the coarse CRK lanyard and I'm going to run Ranger green para-cord tied Randall style.

    Very nice! I like your choice of the Spec Ops sheath, fits the knife better IMO. The black First Spear sheath seems a little big for the 6 inch blade, probably works better for the full size Green Beret. Time to get it dirty Judge.

    Man-o-man, that knife makes almost every other "military" style knife out there look clumsy. Credit to both CRK and Bill Harsey for such an awesome knife. Never looked better than in Black PVD with a plain edge. Looking forward to some dark earth photos as well!

    Mine came a day early and I can confirm that the black PVD blade is darker than the ones on my serrated Green Berets. I really like the black sheath as well.
