    Looks like a new blade steel for fixed blades. I didn’t hear anything about this change.

    That will be sweet. I’m definitely in for one in 4V.

    IF that's accurate, I just put a fixed blade purchase on hold to get in line for one of these!!!!!
    NOTE: just checked the CRK web site and started an order for a Pacific. No steel choice at this time. Only serrated and non-serrated. Specs page shows S35VN only. Let's hope!

    I wonder if they will just transition away from s35vn completely, going with s45vn for folders, 4V for fixed blades.

    Has CRK ever offered a choice in a single model (apart from the damascus options)?

    That would be a nice way to go for them! To my knowledge there has never been a choice of steels other than Damascus.

    It’s a sign...

    I’d been waiting for a BRKT 4v kephart for a few months only to be notified that it was completely discontinued and my order was canceled.
