I need a stop pin for a CRKT - Does anyone know where I can order this from and possibly other spares for CRKT knives?
I had no luck with CRKT themselves -SA probably not important enough.

I like the look of these and all the blades are made from N690 Bohler Steel  :drif:

These are monster working folders https://www.extremaratio.com/prodotti/coltelli-chiudibili/chiudibili-molto-pesanti.html

So I bought my first Bestech not so ling ago, liked it and wanted to check out some more. A few others have joined my EDC inventory

Handle Material:   G10
Blade Material:   D2
Clip Material:          Stainless steel
Blade Length:          90mm
Weight:                  152g
Overall Length:       213mm
Hardness:          59-61HRC


Solid and comfortable

BG14A-1 | TOUCAN

Blade Thickness:   3.5MM
Handle Material:   Black G10
Blade Material:   D2
Clip Material:          Stainless steel
Blade Length:          88MM

Sharpest of the three out of the box


BG23B | EYE OF RA

Blade Thickness:   3.2mm

Overall great knives for not too much money.

Very cool.

I also own a Toucan for a few months now, very happy with it.
Have found the blade benefits from a good strop every now and then.

Oh and I'm not sure I will be able to retain that point on the edge after enough sharpening.

Yes, D2 tends to keep its edge and I strop mine weekly and after extensive use  :thumleft:

Service/Customer Relations/Feedback from knife companies - Just a rambling... maybe a rant....

I have been trying to get some spare components for some "American'' made knifes with no luck even at parent company level, in fact parent company( Not just one company) just does not get back to my mails at all. Now sitting with hundred of dollars worth of knives that I will have to come up with a plan to make them 100% functional again.

Boker Solingen got back to me with a query within 48 hrs, two weeks later I was sorted with what I needed - Germany

I could not find the Arctic on the Bestech website and inquired to the authenticity of the knife I had purchased, they replied withing 24 hours - This is a new product and will be uploading the knife profiles on Monday (8th March) - Guess what, loaded on the Monday - China
