    got the same knife
    I love the damn thing, so bloody sharp, cut myself a couple of times with it.
    keeps me amused on those long boring nights in the field, and for anything I acutally need to use it for.
    I've had it for about six months now, and it's barely gotten any duller then when I bought it.

    Isnt the CKRT the Taiwanese made knife that is famous for rusting?

    The metals commonly used have high carbon content, hard but needs to be regularly maintained.

    The CRKT Knife company is based out of Wilsonville, OR. They do not employ cheap steel and are not based out of China.

    Here is a fact sheet on the Steel used in the CRKT knives:

    A lot of folks like these CRKT knives though I am not very keen on the styling which always seems a bit technical for my tastes I have heard the blades are pretty decent. Would not swap it for any one of my two Kershaw “Ken Onions”.

    They are good for the money.

    If you have more money, get something better, like a Spyderco. Or a Spyderco. Your choice!

    Wow even with the coating you guys managed to get rust on it? I've used my m16 to slice up a pineapple before and it was all nasty and sticky, first thing I did when I got back home that night was to take it apart, clean it with water, and cleaned it with tuffcloth, knife is still in good condition. As for the whole made in Taiwan bit.. Both Spyderco and Benchmade have models made overseas. The main question is whether they are made to the proper specs overseas and is quality control doing their job.

    I've got the CRKT M16-10K (Compact EDC). It's all black with a black coated tanto blade. Mine too is marked Taiwan.

    However, I couldn't disagree more with the rusting statement. I lost mine last November (2005). Well I found it last weekend sitting in the street right under my mail box. We've had a lot of snow and thaws since then and our roads have been heavily salted. When I found the knife, it operated just fine and still had a great edge on it, but the exterior was a little beat up and there was a little surface rust on the blade. I just wiped the rust off with my hand, gave it a shot of lube, and it's as good as new (just looks a little beat up).

    IMO, that's a pretty good knife. It's not the best by any means, but I'm very happy with mine. My biggest gripe about it is the belt / pocket clip. It's held on by the tiniest torques head screws that you've ever seen. I can't even find the right torques bit to fit it. So, I'm force to tighten it every once in a while.

    Most Spyderco's are Japanese. Seki makes fantastic blades. I enjoy the quality of Japanese steel and knives. Therefore, I find no fault with Spyderco having Japanese knives!

    I've never seen a QC (Quality Control) problem with a Spyderco. The only problems are form the clips on earlier FRN (Fiber-Reinforced Nylon) models (plastic scales/grips/handles) breaking off.
