    Not having a moan or saying this with any kind of attitude, but i personally never understood how a change in handle pattern or colour on any knife handles were updates to get excited about. Kind of the way some car and motorcycle companies only release new paint on the new years model, especially when you pay full price on the entire knife just for that handle design. Small structural and mechanical tweaks or updates are much more interesting to me. Now I know my crk knives are refined and close to perfect, but still. I bet people would be much more eager to part with their money for something like: new steel, new grind maybe ffg?, new lock type or new medium size. Grinds, steel and size don’t take long to engineer for an experienced company, i think it would generate a lot of excitement and revenue for crk. Just my 2 cents.

    I’m not into graphics, so they’re all pass for me.

    The more I look at it, the more I think a small plated might be interesting.

    Everybody is different obviously. I for one could care less about new blade Steels or fancy lockup changes as I am more than satisfied with S35VN and very much like the 21 lockup. I don’t even care for the Inkosi and it’s ceramic ball lockup. New CGG which they are doing more often as of late than only changing every few years like in years past and new woods are exciting. Same as buying different UG’s or different wood inlays. While I feel Chris stepping down was not a change for the better, it is nice to see newer designs and combos that we did not have in the past.

    More sebenzas to choose from. Love it! I like fish and hell, even buffalo haha. The Doppler will reign supreme with these releases for sure though.

    No. They have small rear facing barbels. Look up images of Koi.

    My opinion, the new graphics are lame. Guess I'll be waiting until next year for something new.....

    I was hoping they'd show some new Chad Nichols damascus or maybe a damascus Inkosi since they had damascus 25s.

    CRK makes other announcements during the year. All they did was show off a new wood and CGG. There is probably more to come at Blade.

    Im usually never crazy about the CGG as im more of a UG person, but that "Doppler" is NICE! The "Live Free" one is incredible..really like that one.
    I want to see some new damascus!

    I think that "koi" one is maybe an exaggerated design element used in some artist drawings. Dont think its supposed to be an exact copy of "how a koi looks" as say the "Buffalo" one...i could be wrong, but just my opinion.

    Is there one place to go to see new CRK knives? For example, is it best to go to CRK's website, sign up for a newsletter, or regularly check various AD websites?

    All of the above but I usually check out the authorized dealers as many take closeups of the knife and design itself and some even do videos.
