Fantastic Knife

This knife is fantasticly made and came to me in perfect condition , was a bit of a chore to get in canada but was worth the hassle, the knife pivot can be adjusted the review stating it can't has no idea how knife pivots work , all you need is simple tools and blue locktite, the centering can be adjusted by adjusting the pivot but mine came perfectly centered from factory , the teflon washers arnt what I would have used , i woukd have used PB washers but they work and are quite smooth for what they are , im not a fan of the pocket clip thats the only negative for me personally everything else is flawless and im use to high end knives like CRK , Olamic , Holt , etc , obviously can't fully compete with some of these but stands right there next to them and ends up getting a ton of pocket time!

Amazingly smooth and comfortable

Using this for my current EDC to put it to the test. Initial impressions out of the box.......this is a smooth knife with an amazingly tight lockup. Fits the hand perfect, and no hot spots while I broke down a few boxes. I have small hands and still fits perfectly. Build quality didn't match the last reviewer, as this is one of my nicest knives.

CRKT's best. Please CRKT, do more high end knives!

This knife arrived in excellent condition and I have seen no issues with it so far. It is without a doubt the highest quality CRKT has produced. It does have teflon washers so it is not the best action in the world but the knife overall is well built. I have used the field strip quite a few times already and it is simple, intuitive and works, all without tools. Wonderful steel, wonderful titanium handles, wonderful innovation. Beautiful knife.

What a disaster...

I received mine today. I already have one of the originals which arrived in decent condition for the price that they cost. But this one for $250 should have been perfect, and instead, its going to be returned. Its a real mess. The Italians just don't get this knife making thing. The big ones are 1) Badly off center, 2) Unable to adjust pivot to allow for flipping AND eliminate blade play, and 3) Horrible lock stick. The Chinese one arrived dry and worked, while this one arrived way over lubed, yet they still could not get it to work properly. For $25 I might have kept it for parts, but for $250, no way... And for it to be their 25th anniversary issue, very sad indeed. Its going to be a very sad anniversary celebration.

I should have expected this from CRKT

The knife blade simply will not center. I have over 100 knives in my collection from $50 to $550 and this is the only one in which the blade won't center no matter what I do. CRKT supposedly only made 500 of these high end anniversary edition knives so I figured it would be better than their budget offerings. The materials are better, but the quality is the same - poor. Teflon washers in a lousy pivot design. CRKT didn't even bother to respond to my email when I contacted them about the issue, so I'm stuck with a $300 paperweight that no one wants.
