Hi Matt,Just thought I'd give an update after 10 days exclusive carry and use. The minor flex issue mine had has pretty much resolved itself on my large 31 as the ball has worn in a bit against the blade tang .
Really liking the knife as well, hopefully they can sort out this issue in production soon.
Did your new knife arrive directly from CRK with a recent manufacture date?
Reason I am asking is that I have one on order possibly only due in 2 or 3 months time and also wondering that if this flex thing is really an issue that by the time I get the call for mine that it will have been recognized and resolved by the factory.
Thanks for the update.
