Yes, we know that's true , but it's still a really special knife to me.

Yep great knife for the money. Only thing I don't like is the grip is fairly slippery with the carbon fiber, not a huge deal though.

It is much slicker than the trac-tek or whatever they call the regular grippy insert now, but it's still a steal for under a hundred bucks.

All are great specimens; solid lockup, centered blades, good assist. Gonna do a little Blur surgery in a bit

I wish Chris would run his S35VN that hard. My Zaan in S35VN is one of the softest knives I own. That edge rolls when you look at it too hard.

I agree, I'd be thrilled if mine was 61.

Kind of a tradeoff. You get too hard, and the blade chips too easisy. You get to soft, and it rolls.

S35VN should handle 60-61 just fine.

I understand the trade off but 60-61 is not where the chipping will be bad. 62-64 probably will. I understand Chris does this to keep his collectors from *****ing about chipped edges, but I'd really like a knife that could field dress a deer and keep going. Just a few ribs is all it takes to roll CRK's s35 so bad it will no longer cut. My buck vanguard in 420hc handles it just fine, as do my Lusk customs in CPM154. Its pretty sad when a $70 Buck in 420hc is outperforming a $425 dollar CRK in S35vn. Not only outperforming it, flat out smoking it.

The whole reason CRK went to this steel was to save wear on tools, but in the end it is an inferior steel to S30V. For $425 you should at least get decent steel. S35vn could be an ok steel if Chris didn't leave it so soft. I carry my 'Zaan every day and have used it hard, the steel is just not good at all. I continue to carry it due to the excellent craftsmanship and fit, but I always carry a backup knife in good steel. Since I am a user more than a collector, I will never own another CRK in this steel.

Nice knife!

I prefer the 30 myself, and have been grabbing them when I have a chance.
