Wow, CRK is making an FDE inkosi exclusively for KnifeCenter.
Anyone have user CRKs with the KG Gun Kote? How does it hold up/wear?
As a card carrying member of the Flat Dark Earth Society, I approve of this.
I love CRK, but these look gimmicky. Their G11 special are FDE Zaans with satin and boomerang blades. Much better looking imo.
Like every other CRK(apart from the Mnandi), meh. Although this is even more meh.
This flat dark earth is calling to me. But so is that new Seb 31 with micarta inlays...
How often does CRK release coated blades? For the CRK OGs, what have they done in the past?
I'm kind of in the middle. I do like FDE type browns but on a sebenza I like the plain blasted titanium/washed s35vn. I guess I'll have to pass on this one.
Meh. But don’t let me jam your jelly. Like it? Buy it.
Tacticool CRKs? Hard pass. I'm not a big CRK fan to begin with, but I much prefer the understated elegance of the titanium and steel to...this.
If you dig it, though, you do you.
I sort of liked it for a second because I normally really dig the flat dark earth coating color, but after watching the knife center video I hate it.
The coating kind of cheapens the look of something that I normally think of as classy.
I'd be interested to see it in black, but I feel like when the coating wears it's really going to cheapen the over all look of the knife where as normally the marks, scratches, and patina CRKs get with age almost makes them look better, I think the coating will have the opposite effect of making them look worse over time.
I feel like if the handle was normal and just the blade was coated then that would be pretty good looking. Sorta like the REC para3.
Not my cup of tea.
I pass on painted knives....
When I first saw the title of this thread I thought it was some weird, esoteric cult thing. Then I saw it was about the CRK knives and then I knew for sure it was cult thing. CRK fanboys are weird man...
Not digging a coated CRK. But, if this appeals to you, go for it. I’m kinda holding out for what my first configuration of a 31 will be.
But, as we all know, us “CRK fanboys” are weird, man.
It’s true. I read it on the internets.
Its not a flattering photo. Perhaps it looks better in person.
I'll try her out, will pair great with this.
Nope. My next CRK will be a plain Ti 31. Period. Ordered and awaiting the call. But there is one CRK exclusive I will most definitely buy when it drops - the CF inlayed 31. I am passing on the micarta cuz I know that CF one will land someday. Now THAT is an exclusive I can vote yes on.
Maybe the pic doesn't do it justice but the color looks light for FDE.
Thankfully, it's about $400 over my price range for a knife. More CRKs for the rest of you.
