Thanks for posting that pic. I see the Crux is bigger than the Gent but not by as much as I thought. Looks like the edge length is pretty close on both. Not sure if I'll order the Crux now.
Definitely not Spydies but Spyderco is kind of unique. The thing about the Gent (Crux too apparently) is that they're nice, relatively simple designs that are executed very well (IMO). I've come to like my Gent so much that I'd get rid of a lot of other knives before I'd let it go.
Chaparral FRN is a fine choice! There's so many great knives out there. It's hard to pick sometimes.deckeda wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 3:53 pmThis was my #1 pick for awhile, but the more I thought about it the more I wanted a Chapparal FRN instead. I realize they don’t directly compete with each other design-wise, but I could get only one knife at this kind of money. Maybe next year, if it’s not completely sold out by then.
Waiting for delivery as we speak.
Stiff action? Well that's disappointing to read. One of the things that impresses me the most about these knives (at least my two) is how smooth the action is. The detent is perfect on my two as well.
Good to hear (er...read). How does it flip? Both of mine are among the best flippers I own. ZT 0450 might be a hair better but it's close. The detent on the Gents are better tuned to my liking.
