    Do any of you have one of these knives? Thinking about picking one up, was I interested in the the new free k series but I like the price point and look of the crater better. Looks to be same blade steel used. I'm wanting the c33tx. Any reviews or opinions on these MT.

    Mine is the Crater C33T, the version with 2 screwdrivers and PE blade. The blade was nice, a good size and shape, and the detents tight enough to function in place of locks. I liked it well enough to carry for a few weeks, but the lack of enough tools was enough to discontinue its use. I replaced it with a Rebar, a bigger and heavier tool that I carry in a belt mounted sheath, and that's what I carry now. But circumstances change, and I like the Crater well enough that It now resides in my excess knife drawer. Maybe I'll use it again some day.

    I bought one of the earliest Craters and gave it to my wife. I came across it and asked her if she used it, and she spontaneously told me I could not have it back. She's not big on pocket knives so this is the equivalent of Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch.

    I've got one floating around somewhere. Decent enough knife if I remember, I probably thought (and still do) that a full size knife with screwdrivers & carabiner clip would be handy, but I would rather carry my Vic OHT in about the same size but with more tool. That said, I generally carry a plain old folder

    I got a Crater c33t about a year ago. I've carried it in my pocket pretty much every day since and I love it. Minimal tool set, but primarily the two most needed tools for me personally...the knife and phillips screwdriver. I prefer the real deal phillips driver over the one in the Leatherman bit kit, but you can still use the rest of the bit kit with the Crater if you get the removable bit driver. I keep a Rebar, bit kit, and the removable bit driver in my EDC bag, and it pairs very well with the Crater. Can really come in handy when you need some pliers, and a separate screw driver on the fly.

    This has been my edc for just under 2 years (I think), and it is fantastic. Just the right size, weight, cost, durability and functionality. I got the Free K2X, was so pumped. But I am unsure if I like it as much as my Crater after a few days. (Heading to the big Leatherman to get some opinions now). But seeing this question, for me, my Crater is the bees knees.
