Ok, I'm actually turning 37 in a several days. But, I did something crazy. I hear you only live once. I bought some knives. This takes the collection to a total of way too many... 26 I think. I've been very fortunate. Knives have been and are my only hobby besides running and working. Anyways, as traditional around these parts... feast the eyes.

Please forgive the poor lighting and nervously shaken pictures. I was too excited to focus.

I have several duplicate backups because I worry too much. It may be time to sell off some of the boys, room's getting full. 10 years ago CRK was overpriced crap fools bought. My tenacious is just as good said I. WTF happened? Where am I? Finally, I am so thankful for left handed CRK's. I called and was told 6% of production is for people like myself.

There is nothing functionally wrong with a 31 despite some initial stink upon release. I just prefer the 21's clip and inlay style so much more. Since I prefer a discontinued knife, time was not really an option. I found a LARGE selection of these with individualized pictures for each knife. After speaking aloud a few obscenities I calmed down enough to look through the inventory. Keep in mind these are ALL lefty versions. I found the best of each damascus pattern. It happened to work out that each pattern had a different wood. A small discount was involved, but I'll say no more. I basically went into hobby debt. I am simply going to have to abstain from buying stuff for some time. I felt it was a good idea. These will be gone one day and no amount of money can fix the annoyance of missing out on an easy chance.

Wish I could see the pics so I can drool a little ;)
Sometimes being left handed pays off in a right handed world. :)

If you’re going to be a bear, be a grizzly. You’re definitely not a teddy bear with those three :p
No doubt they’ll bring a smile to your face. Only question is, which one will you use first ?
