New Sherrif in Town!-Crusader Forge
I've been excited about receiving some folders and Flippers from Crusader Forge for several months now. When the parcel arrived this afternoon, I was in for quite a surprise. I immediately new something was different about these knives when i went to lift one of the individual boxes each knife comes in. I couldn't believe the heft of this box. I could bearly contain myself while removing the packing material.
I could not believe my eyes. The knife was massive as it was heavy. The Titanium frame Lock was a beast and the blade was just as impressive. Everything about this knife reminded me of an M1-A1 Abrahams Tank. Even the Clip and screws were over engineered Military Grade and then some. Yet the knives was extremely smooth to open as well as close. Even the back end of the frame is shaped into a glass breaker to a degree. Of course I had to pull out some Strider SMF's and SNG's to compare build overall, including size and weight. These are clearly a heavier knife designed to withstand almost any assault. I've encluded some comparison photos w the striders for size comparison as photos alone don't portray the sheer immensity of these knives. The strider RC comes close in size and weight but not quite! Needless to say, I'm wuite excited about these knives and will posting some of the more elaborate 3D finishes, colors and profiles available for Crusader Forge. I have also discussed a 3.25 model that is more manageable for some, so stay tuned. Scroll below for additional photos!

Awsome looking knife. I like it much more than the Strider you are using as a size comparison.
