    Notice the CR near the pivot. That tells us it is a Chris Reeve knife. As to blade grind I am in the dark but don't care for it myself.

    I was going to cut plastic and cardboard. So I grabbed Frankencryo. It did fantastic cutting the plastic.
    It got a wee bit dull slicing cardboard. But a couple licks on the ceramic stick fixed it right up.

    Is it anodized blue or is just the pic? Looking nice.

    I had a propensity to have the loose ends of a lanyard fuzzy. But I lost two different wire beads when the knots came undone. This one ain't gonna do that.

    Thank you! Just the lighting. They did re-blast the handle. Does seem a bit darker. It was gone too long. Happy to have it back!

    Well, the laundry list of knives I mentioned a while back in the 'on the way' thread has finally started trickling in

    The first to arrive was my new (to me) 0770 Aluminum that I bought off a fine gentleman here

    I actually like this version more than the CF handled version, a bit of sculpting on the Al and the texturing of the anodizing gives me much better purchase on the handle. And even though it has standoffs instead of a long spacer, plus the solid Al handles, gives this knife a more more solid feel without adding much weight.

    I like it a lot

    And my latest purchase, a step up for me, and one that I fear is leading me down a very expensive path.

    It was this, or go the full custom route (which I suspect is in the very near future any way...)

    The detent is a bit much for my taste. Still breaking it in, but I can see that I may have to take further steps to address this

    [edit, this last pic was supposed to be of the detent ball, not a repeat of already shown picture...]

    And no, this will not be a safe queen, it will be a user

    Sorry. Switched to photobucket. We'll see if that works. Thanks for letting me know!

    Kershaw Strobe today. Love this guy. Flippers and ball bearings are where it's at.
