The title pretty much says it all. When did Chris Reeves leave the company bearing his name?
Chris retired in 2014......... CRK was winning the Quality Manufacturing Award nearly every year:
That's right, still winning after Chris retired.

I have to agree with you on the above.2014 as others have stated. It’s one of those things that just isn’t brought up as for the reason. It’s their business, not ours.
I have had a different experience, but everyone can and does interpret interactions differently. I use to see Chris and Tim multiple times a year during the show circuits. I've BS with them during shows, over drinks and food. IMHO Chris and Tim are humble people but they are their own unique person, just like you and I. However, everyone's mileage will vary.The biggest difference during the Chris years and now is that Chris Reeve was humble, Tim Reeve is not.

I've known many humble people in my life. Chris Reeve is not one of them.
Chris raced motorcycles. Held a motorcycle speed record for the fastest time between two cities. Built a knife manufacturing business out of his garage using a manufacturing technique no one had ever thought of.
Immigrated from a backwater little South African city to the USA and became an official manufacturer for the US military and built a huge business to boot............Humble was not his way.
I don't know Tim very well, I have only met him a few times, but he seems to have taken to the business well and is charting his own course. Good for him. Comparing him to Chris is unfair to them both.
