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.
