    2 or 3 new lefty friendly models. Not cool. The budget production Hi Jinx looks the most appealing, but at that price it will be like $60 for a knife in 4116 and with plastic handles. I hate to say it, but I might be totally passing on CRKT this year.

    Homefront and Humdinger looks like, they'd make for good hunting/companion knives.

    Quite like the Muzzlebrake.

    The Thighe Breaker looks ugly as sin.

    The Tecpatl should be drug behind a shed and put out of its misery THEN nuked from space.

    wish they would use a different steel than AUS8. For the price they charge, it could easily be done.

    It's all good, I honestly don't think there's any problem with having a couple of threads on the subject. :)

    The last CRKT i bought was Jettison, and it was because of the hype reviews on YT, which i regretted. Other than that, think the 2017 lineup doesnt interest me. IMO CRKT is becoming overpriced for the quality of material, and you can easily find better alternatives in the market nowadays even for the cheap knives in $30+ range. Kershaw Link for example, you can get it for $36 made in USA.

    I'm definately eyeing the Pillar and Batum models. I nuetered my Bryd Cara Cara a few years back when I thought I was about to move somewhere with short blade length laws and feel like the Pillar is a sleeker looking version. Also probably picking up a Snailor or two.
    I'm a bit surprised at myself, I already swore off CRKT due to their steel issues this past year but it's hard to mess up a nice budget knife, 8Cr is 8Cr after all. I'll just stay in the shallow end this year and save my big money for a PM2.

    I'd say they are spot on to the real thing.
