    I bet if the ti-lock was done as the flipper it was meant to be, it would have sold better.

    Nope. No flippers.

    No thanks. A flipper doesn't really embody the company philosophy, IMO.

    I'd say yes on a front flipper. Something Tilock sized. Washers and bushing pivot, please.

    Only if it was a collaboration with G&G Hawk.

    No, flippers are for boys. :p

    A thin bladed slipjoint would be nice though..

    No, Thank You.
    Not on a Sebenza and it's not what CRK stands for, YMMV.

    I'd have at least one of those too, along with my front deployment (not "flipper" per say) Mnandi.

    According to legend the Tilock was originally planned to be a flipper but then Chris decided against it.

    Now you mention it, perhaps I could be on board with a CRK Hawk flipper...

    A front flipper "gentleman's" knife along the lines of the Kizer Feist ... yes.

    Anything else - no.

    I wouldn't complain if they put into production that Virobloc folder that Chris made.

    I don't understand why folks want knives that look more, feel more, and manipulate more like some other knife... or a whole slew of knives. Personally when I see a frame lock flipper on bearings I slowly back away with my index fingers forming a crucifix.

    They are fun. Try one you may like it. CRKT has some that are pretty cheap compared to a Sebeza. Get an EROS, only $145 at KnifeCenter. Ti framlock with IKBS and Acto steel at 59-60Rc.

    No, I don't think a CRK should ever flip. :thumbsdown:

    I would like them to make a better flipper than is currently available. If I am driving a long distance, I only carry a front pocket knife. That knive is usually a ZT 0770 CF. It is the largest folder that feels comfortable (to me) in a front pocket and it is an assisted flipper. Works for me in the SUV. I believe that CRK could make a better version of that type of knife without damaging their brand identity.
