No not that one but I have purchased at least 15 others from CRKT. All high quality, hold an edge and easy to sharpen.

I need to find a fixed blade I like. Tried 2 different SOG's and was very let down.

I don't have any experience with that one specifically, but every CRKT I've owned has been excellent. I usually end up losing them before they even dull, years later.

Never heard of that but my Cold Steel SRK has been with me since the early 90's and still going strong. I've used it to dig dirt, chop 3" diameter branches, even cut vegetables with and has never let me down.

IP,
I have the exact knife w/o the serrations. I have been very happy with it.

Some observations:

The grip is VERY textured, batoning w/o gloves can get hard on the hands.
I fixed this by putting a sleeve of heat wrap on the grip, works great for me.
The Pry-Butt is a usefull tool.
The sheath is well made and friction fit.


I got the knife for some insanely cheap price a few years ago and wish I bought 2.
I paid $35.00 in 2009.
Regards,
Mike

I too find the Cold Steel SRK to be a teriffic knife for the money. If bidget is a real concern---order a couple of Glock knives online---cheap and good.

got it on ebay for $20, aside from not having a clue how i would carry it (kydex with lanyards, no belt loop or decent webbing slits) it's a pretty sweet knife. perfect size, great grip, nice weight. hopefully i find a way to make it useful :)

How's that SOG working out? I'm a bit skeptical to order from Ebay, shipping from China.

I have the ultima with the longer blade. Great knife, and yes the scales are quite aggressive ! I like the texture though honestly, it makes for a firm grip from any angle and when wet and muddy it really shines. The sheath is ok, but I had to make some mods to make it better. There is a hitch when you draw the knife , from the retaining strap just above the scabbard. Also when forcefully drawing the knife the plastic inner came with the blade until I glued it in more securely!
Overall a great value and a solid knife. The zeff serration is wickedly sharp and I like the blade shape and thickness. The point is a beast too.

When did they make Double-Edged blades legal in California?

Dirks and Daggars I thought were a felony, like switchblades, pen-knives, butterfly knives, and WW1trench knives with the brass-knuckle hilt.

It is legal to own the knives you mentioned in CA, as long as you keep them in the home and do not transport or carry on your person or in a vehicle. I'm not an expert but this is my understanding of the law. Now , whether companies are comfortable shipping them to CA is another matter entirely!
