This one is still open![Aaatt Laaast!]
There are plenty of AECM CPK out there, but this one is mine! This was gifted to me and apart from being genuinely blown away by that, I definitely had that moment of "Oh. So this, THIS is what all the fuss is about!" With all the handles I have had come through my shop, I've never actually seen AECM in person. There is a richness and depth to this material that is very nice. It's really something.
Quick photo out of the box.
Edit: I just went looking for the "CPK People are the Best" thread and found that thread is closed. So let me say it here, Grenock is tops. Thank you, brother, for making this happen.
Word of caution to the rest of you who may deal with him at some point - be warned that he is far more generous than you might be prepared for, goes above and beyond, and generally does not play by the rules.
Here I was trying to decide between you and @Hardknocks as to who I would make sure got the Westinghouse set should something untimely happen to me and you go and help me make the decision, thanks Matty! Oh, and congrats Dave!Yup both Eric and Marc are excellent choices and you can’t go wrong with either one of them. I’d have difficulty to choose one over the other but if push comes to shove (or Shiv) I'll have to say Eric. The younger pup over the older dog who also bites at times

Saved me, was gonna buy the FK and LC combo.
Having an interest in USA made knives but not living there adds an extra layer of difficulty.
The Secondary market is very difficult in particular.
I would like to thank Jo for making direct purchases so easy.
I would also like to say a huge thanks to a very cool dude and friend fonedork for doing me a massive transatlantic solid.
