Who would like to see a CRKT forum? I know I would. I think they have had more hits of late than just about any other knife company. I would like to know who we can contact at CRKT about getting a forum here. Anyone know?
This has been suggested more than once, with warm, enthusiastic receptions. CRKT is a fan-favorite around here.
I suspect any reluctance on their part might be due to their willingness or ability to dedicate a resource (that's a person, in management-speak) to Moderate at this time. The person would need to be entrusted with representing the company daily, in writing, before a huge, powerful base of customers. No small feat. As evidenced by the recent Cold Steel forum debacle, the amount and energy of posts can be crushing in the beginning, and if a company is not committed to it, they can be quickly overwhelmed. The more popular (and 'populist') the company's products, the more popular wouldd be the forum, naturally. Since CRKT's products hover around the $30-50 range, they are within most everyone's reach and their forum would undoubtably attract a lot of attention.
Basically any manufacturer is welcome to have a forum here. It is decision to come here as the offer is on the table.

I talked with them last week at the SHOT show about joining the forum and they feel they just couldn't do it justice. Both Paul and Rod do alot of trade shows, etc and they are the two that would need to reply to the posts. I haven't given up on them. Maybe it will happen in time. I offered to help and I'm sure the other makers that work with them would also. Let's keep trying.
