I was not sure they were worth the money for what you get. I recently watched a factory tour of his shop and I think I'm starting to understand why these knives cost as much as they do. I see that Mr. Reeve sets out to make the best pocket knife that he can, no matter what the cost. As someone that appreciates mechanical devices and machining, seeing the huge amount of care and close tolerances he takes really makes me want one even more. The fact that he aims to have within .0003 of an inch or so of tolerance is mind boggling, and truly shows the skill and engineering that he must put into his work. I'm not sure that I will ever spend over $250 for a knife, but if I do I for sure think it will be a CRK. I hope to one day find a god deal on a left handed model or a model with double thumb studs for a good deal used when funds allow, until then I guess I will appreciate his work from afar.
