    I only knew of Mr. Carson only by the name and reputation he had built for himself in our hobby, but his loss is definitely a sad day for knife folks. My condolences to his friends and family. :(

    I just checked CRKT's website right now and found nothing regarding Kit's death. Furthermore I checked their facebook page where they post very frequently and they never even mentioned one word about Kit.

    I agree with you, I am absolutely disgusted and filled with rage about this. Kit Carson was the person who made CRKT famous with his M-16 design. Several years later the M16 remains to be CRKT's most famous knife. I love CRKT's products and customer service, but I am EXTREMELY disappointed with them for not even bothering to make a quick facebook post honoring Kit's death.

    I'm not sure I will want to buy anymore CRKT products from now on. :(

    They did have something on their Facebook page , believe it was the Monday or Tuesday after his passing.

    Plus I guess you totally missed their press release too right ?
