    Only way he will ever do that is if it a CPK happens to be in the car he is driving as he hits a deer.

    I am guessing it will still be in the white box Jo shipped it in.

    Sorry, I think I did that while I was still asleep. That was not the phrasing I was going for.:D. I meant to say nice work! Sometimes I start typing and then it skips around on me. I shouldn't send any messages before my coffee.

    Every edc gets used in the kitchen. I actually put a micro roll about 5mm long in this one this past Saturday when I was cutting out some old caulk to put moldings on in our apartment. Took a gentle hone to it, just a few passes, then hit a strop for a few passes more on black, green, then plain. It’s good as new. I really like this knife. It’s a shame I can’t take it outside or it’d go with me everywhere.

    Ha! No apology needed. I was just funnin' and I'm glad some of my scales are recognizable. It made me smile.


    Now for my carry knife:

    I'll be honest with you, you are not too far off :D

    I almost feel guilty unboxing the careful way which Jo boxes up our CPKs but I'm too curious so I must take a peek inside ;)

    Am I the only one that unties the bag knot rather than just ripping/cutting it open?:oops:

    Oh, and Jo, can you leave the knots a little looser?:D

    There can be only one answer to this question, it doesn't matter which day of the week (unless I'm camping then it's the FK\HDFK.)

    Interesting how those OD green micarta scales turn into a brownish hue with age, oxidization, oils from the skin, etc; there was a post and an explanation by Nathan about this process a whole while back but I'm in a lazy mood to go to dig that up. I'd like to see your preorders when they hit the porch, ye sneaky bastid ;)

    These are starting to brown for sure. I have had this DEK for a while, it’s the one I got from the very first sale if I recall. The OD green scaled EDC1 that I also carry for work frequently has turned a dark, chocolate brown, there is no green hue to it at all.

    If I see an older model with OD green scales that are still OD, I know I am looking at a knife that hasn’t done chit.

    I always had you pegged as a dirty DEK.


    That was in response to me posting my OD green EDC2 (the same knife I posted earlier in this thread) and commenting on how much the color had changed since I got it.

    I purposely chose a low resolution photo earlier in this thread because my EDC2 is beat to shit and I didn’t want anyone (Nathan) reprimanding me. Or worse, revoking my ability to purchase direct from CPK.
