Amen to this.My Kershaw EDC (Blackout or Whirlwind) are now discontinued and prices are going through the roof. What used to be $39 bucks; are now on Ebay and Amazon for $179-$199. Gross.
Luckily I bought a spare for both back when they were cheap, and available.
If you like something, buy a spare...or two. It will pay off.
So my CRKT CEO finally showed up today! All the reviews about it being tough to open and needing two hands really had me worried. It also shipped in the most bizarre way ever. Open with a tiny plastic sheath over the tip, in a toothbrush type package. But it was near impossible to open! You're sitting here tearing at this package with an open knife inside!View attachment 279023 View attachment 279024 All that aside the knife opens like a damn assisted switch blade one handed. Could be a bit sharper though.
