I have bought two of the Crawford 1 folders. I like the overall design, but they have two serious design flaws:
The first is the blade centering is terrible. The pivot screw adjustment range is extremely limited.
The second is the handle grip insert is not durable and has melted. I will see if...
I went for a couple of years having bought any Spyderco knives.
The last couple of months of 2020 I bought a few.
The pivot screw fell out of the Rockjumper.
The rest of them were great.
All of them are FRN.
I have picked up four of them so far.
Very nice designs.
One of them is a modified Wharncliffe that needs the pocket clip redesigned.
Two of the others have rather thick-feeling handles that I haven't gotten used to yet.
The last one is a clip point with blue G10 with carbon fiber overlay...
The first three knives for 2021 for me will be:
Spyderco Native 5 in SPY 27 blade steel.
( I wanted the Manix 2 SPY 27, but none of my favorite dealers had them.)
Steel Will Sedge in gray G10 handle scales and black-coated 4-inch D2 blade steel.
Steel Will Barghest in black G10 handle scales...
I recently ordered three Spyderco folders from them the weekend before Christmas.
They got here the day before Christmas.
I have been using them for around 20 years or so.
I plan on buying from them again in the future.
I have bought the regular black FRN, serrated version and have been putting it to work recently.
It has become one of my favorite knives.
I really like the Endura 4 and have several versions of them.
I think that it was a good idea to add the Endela to their line.
I have the K390 Endela on...
It is going to take some time for them to consolidate the previous set-up that Cold Steel had as an independent company.
They probably have a deadline for just before the end of the year to get things settled in California and moved completely over to their new Texas location.
